Staggered, NEO CHROME!?!

Alright so I guess I'm in the market for some rims.
I was doing some searching, and I was trying to find some 5 star rims.
Some 5 star rims that I had a dream about..Lol sounds silly right?
But I know they are out there!
But my search was to no avail.
I did however see a cartoon of them.

Props to whoever's sig this is but...



So if anyone knows what kind of rims those are feel free to share input.

Moving on...
I was thinking about staggered rims.
My friend has a Passat, and he has a staggered setup on his.
I'm not sure why since his car is FWD like ours, but I must say, they do look awesome.
Has anyone seen any 5th Gen's with staggered wheels?
Pics would be cool.

And finally while looking for rims, I came across Neo Chrome Lip rims.

Pic

I tried to find pics of any ludes with neo chrome lips, but I couldnt find any.
I even tried to youtube a video of any car with them on, but no luck.
Do you guys think they are too flashy?

Oh also, what's the biggest lip we can have, cause I haven't seen too many 5th gens with big lips.
Most have lips that are half inch, not even a lip at all :(.

Re: Staggered, NEO CHROME!?!

Firstly, there are plenty of wheels out there that look similar to that. From memory, they're Enkies, but it's a long time since I looked. He's a member on PO, I might have a look on there later if I've got the time.

Neo chrome lip looks wierd. It'd probably be ok if you had harlequin or chameleon paint, but with a plain or a pearl colour it'd look wierd.

Staggard wheels...hmmm...not a look I'm a fan of personally...not even on RWD. The problem is our cars require a relatively high offset wheel. If you'r enot sure about offsets and such then check here for more info. The problem being the higher the offset, the less room there is to fill up with stuff like a lip.

I researched.
And I came up with Enkei LS-5's.
Seen here.


However I was looking for a chrome lip, and more of a triangle type spoke.
The one's on the enkei are slim, i want them to start out wide and then go slim like the cartoon's..
Keep in mind I do know it is a cartoon...And Im not sure if a rim like that is possible. But ehh...

Re: Staggered, NEO CHROME!?!
