Nice! But all I see now is a Jetta!

Maybe red lugs are needed? You gotta hide the Jetta look, just like you'd hide your kids, your wife, and your husband because Jetta owners will be rapin' imitations out there.

take those rims off, seriously? why would you put jetta wheels on a tc, the stock tc wheels look 1000x better than those jetta rims.

now that im done trolling, the car looks good.

the stock wheel looks better but has horrible offset. these wheels made everything flush. they are just temp wheels. yea the lug nuts were all i had laying around but i do agree with you

I like the car color choice. For next suspension setup, anything lower than TRDs; B&G or Stance GR+ coilovers can def slam.

Imo i would keep the jetta wheels just to be diffrent. I think with a nice drop they would look decent, and I prefer them over the rim in the pic you just posted. The rim in that pic just looks like another stock rim.

I think in a comparison, the vw rims look way better on the tc than tc rims on a vw. Not that this was brought up, I'm just showing.

the only thing i could see making those wheels look good on your car would be get them powder coated a different color and bagging your car.

Wheels don't look too bad. I'm always a fan of 5 spoke wheels so I think they look better than OEM tC wheels. However, from a far glance and in the pics, the style and the shape of it makes them look like hubcaps you can buy at Autozone.

Interesting wheels. The first thing I thought of when I saw your tC was that it was a spec model, the tC's that were released a while back from the factory that came with only hubcaps and non-opening moonroof. I like the second set of rims that you have on hold at the moment, I think they will look better on your car.
