Et45 is the standard offset on Evoque/DA/Velar wheels.
In fitting them to a FL2 it gives it a more purposeful look with no clearance issues. FL2 now gone and have a couple of items left for sale:-

Brodit active iPhone holder + Brodit dash clip,
Bluetooth Music Streaming Module.

Not only tracks but roads eat tyres in Australia, it looks like rats have feasted on your tyres. You need to let them down. The more side wall you have the better. I have put 3 plugs in one hole.

The public road from Karajini to Millstream National Park as a mild example, most people get permission to use the mining road, is rough with sharp rock egdes. So you need to let your tyres down & drive slower. Even then it was not a nice drive on our 18 inch wheels. You have had it after a couple of hours of rough roads.

North Flinders Ranges, horrible corrugated & tyre eating roads roads. Gibb River Road east end is the same. We destroyed a tyre like the another 3 vehicles that same day! All of us had extra spare wheels.


“What, more corrugations?” we hear you cry. “After a thousand kays of them on the Tanami?”

Definition required please.....

A search brings up poodle rims a few times:

Actually they are poodle rims but better than extra poodle: http://www.freel2.com/forum/topic32292.html?highlight=poodle+rims

A definition of extra poodle rims near bottom of page: http://www.freel2.com/forum/topic32396.html?highlight=poodle+rims

Another reference here with good photos: http://www.freel2.com/forum/topic32124.html?highlight=poodle+rims


Loved by yummy mummies with hand bag sized poodle pets apparently. And, according to SWMBO also drug dealers/gangsters/pimps and their associates. Jules
