    I got tired thinking of changing all those tires. They all look great on that beautiful car. Let's see; Mon-Thurs, 10 spoke, Fri-Sat, 20 spoke, and Octa's on Sun. Like getting new shoes, you have to try on a bunch, until you find the pair that's just right. Like Eric said, can't leave the house without bumping into a MK VIII vert, on Octas.

    I like the ten spoke wheels, but I have trouble counting past ten, so I may be biased.

    I put the 20 spokes back on the convertible and the octastars back on the 97.

    Here's a comparison of the 97 with the 20 spokes and the octastars.

    I love these comparison pics. Thanks, Bill.

    And as much as I like the 20 spokes, I now know that I agree with those who say the Octastars are a better fit for the gen 2..
