Did the R ever come with 17" wheels?

And if so - how do I tell whether my car was originally ordered with them please?

Thanks Phil - Does anyone know which part number I'm looking for for the 19" please (should be a Talladega from the 2010 model)?

Thanks very much kentech - that's what I thought but I found a 19" Talladega on the volkswagen.com site which had a different part number so got slightly unsure.

They were available for/on the Golf 6 R as well, but with a different offset (ET).

I read something online yesterday stating that you could order 17"s fitted with winter tyres, even for the R but I don't know if that was only in certain parts of mainland Europe where they are compulsory

Yes, that was possible. They were called St. Moritz (6,5 x 17 ET 39) and that was the official "winter tyre set" that you could get from the factory when ordering your car.

I got a set of these with mine as my car was sold new in Germany.

As said, the 19" Talladega was also available for the Golf but it has an offset of ET51 as opposed to ET41 on the Scirocco.

There are also different colours of 19" Talladegas.

This site is useful for OEM part numbers.

You can read the part number on the back of one of your existing wheels.

Thanks all - I was needing to replace a cracked 19" Talladega and the garage had said that they could source one for about £500 (new). When it turned up, it was a 17" wheel and the garage told me my car originally came with 17s. I didn't think the R originally came with 17s, just 18s or 19s so thanks for confirming my thoughts. I suspect the garage were just trying to pull a fast one to make up for their mistake. Anyway, since they wanted an additional £300 for a new 19" Talladega, I sourced a refurb which is being fitted tomorrow :)
