This is the latest product from the RacingLine range – our new 19″ alloy wheels. From the development on our 18″ wheels (the only wheel that we use on all of our race cars) we have now introduced its big brother, the 8.5″ x 19″ Alloy Wheels.
Nothing makes more difference to your car’s appearance than its wheels. And of course, a lighter-weight wheel makes a big contribution to the ride, handling and responses of any car through reducing the all-important unsprung weight. Yet at the same time, nothing is more important than the safety and reliability of your car’s wheels.
This is the challenge of developing a wheel suitable for both road and track.
The 19″ rim is a heat treated alloy wheel weighing 24.05lbs (10.9kg) per wheel for the 8.5″ rim width, whilst crucially still retaining the strength needed on road or track. There are of course lighter wheels on the market, but in our experience these are not engineered to cope with the punishment of repeated hard road and track use. All of our wheels are produced to the highest standards manufactured in the UK only to meet OEM standards. The quality of this wheel is confirmed by our commitment to meeting international standards (such as the TUV standards) for geometric accuracy and passing the impact requirements and structural fatigue requirements for specific Volkswagen Group models, along with often-overlooked load rating requirements.
The wheel is an attractive 12 spoke design finished in a unique satin graphite grey. With an offset of ET45, and a rim widths of 8.5″, the wheel has been developed to fit perfectly under the wheel arches of all Golf 7 models (and shared-platform cars such as Audi A3/S3 8V), plus Jetta A6. Our 19″ wheel also fits on cars such as Beetle, Tiguan and Audi TT.
19" Application List:
* The 19″ wheel fits the Golf 5/6, Jetta and other ‘narrow body’ cars – but please note that clearance is tight on these cars and there may be a risk of rubbing against wheel arches/liners under high suspension loadings.
The wheels are supplied with replacement uprated wheel bolts.
The 19″x8.5″ rim is suitable for all Golf 7 models, and looks simply perfect on these models filling the arches to perfection. The PCD is 5×112, with a centre bore of 57.1mm. In other words, the perfect size for your Volkswagen. We recommend a tyre size of 235/35 R19 for these wheels to maintain wheel arch clearance. Note that for Golf 5/6 applications, where arch clearance is tight we would recommend a 225/35 R19 tyre.
