What aftermarket alloys have you guys gone for?

 

Thinking to play it safe with the 18's Jerez (for now) after wasting money on adding the 19 Prets (old MK7 R) which cracked at the sight of a pothole!

 

Keen to see if anyone has added OZ HLT Forged alloys?

What's the weight of these per alloy? 

 

Trying to find out the weight of the standard 18 Jerez 🤔

@Mange has fitted aftermarket alloys to his mk8R (as opposed to the mk7/7.5 Rs above) and iirc he posted up some pics on the mk8 members’ gallery thread.  Pretty sure at least one other forum member has gone aftermarket alloys on a mk8R too.  
 

There is a big pinned thread on aftermarket alloys in the Mk7 Modifying section too which might provide inspiration for mk8R.
