The 3rd one looks the best, and very sporty and would also be the pick of the lot!

Is the 3rd one made by League? Could u PM me the price of it.

you need alloys even with the awesome spider alloy wheels shipped with the RS. And dude, 17 inchers will only give you the looks, never comfort or ride quality. Do do consider before going in for it.

yes i know im going to lose out on the comfort but its okay.cant find any design worth spending 50k + on in 16 inch therefore going for 17.
i dont really like the spiders.they never really did it for me.

If I had an opinion being the guy who fixes these machines thru out the day I'd say steer clear from 17" coz this isn't L.A. my friend and trust me Skoda suspensions aren't cheap n this will definitely wear you out in 6 months...ask the master mechanic dude!

i'd pic the 1st one LG208. That outer ring will look awesome and the finish of the alloys will suit your cars color.
Let us in on some of the pricing that you get while buying the alloys.

Nitroxx is right. 17" will kill your suspensions for sure on our roads. Stick to 16". May not look as cool, but you'll thank yourself.

i dont think its worth spending 35-50 k if im going in fro 16 inch rims as i already have the spiders which are 16.so im contemplating whether to go in for 17 or scrap the idea

go in for the LG209, 3rd pic....
don't worry abt the suspension thingy...
even i've got 17s in my octy from past 10 months but theres no prob with the suspension. i knw u'll feel all the small small bumps like there are of a very bigger size. but only 17s look hot on Octys......
and the similar design u r talking abt.. wht make it is???
