    Hello all!


    I want to order my new Amarok V6 Highline Plus and I am not sure about wheels to choose.
    It comes with standard Manaus 18" and VW want like 500€ for the Milford.

    I love the look with Milford 19", but hate the idea of having a 19" in a pick up truck!
    And I think there are not AT tires for 19" wheels.


    What are your experiences?

    Thanks!
    I think I am going to the Milford 19". They are much more beautiful!
    Are the tires much more expensive in this size?

    I wanted 22" with low profile General Grabbers. Came from Overfinch Range Rover. Almost match Indium Grey. They look great and the ride's not been affected Amarok3.jpg

    I have the 18" manus. I wanted the 19" cantera? As I like the look rather than the size but for some reason the vw computer wouldn't let me order them with a full size spare so I ended up sticking with the 18" manus.

    I find them very annoying as they have small corners that you can't get the brake dust out of with a normal sponge. You have to use something like a tooth brush. I don't like cleaning cars at the best of times so mine always have black lines in them where I didn't clean them.

    Go for the 19" but just check up on the spare wheel. I was told if I went for the 19" wheels I could only have a space saver spare which is no use to me, however others have since told me it's not a space saver it's a full size tyre just on a steel rim which would've been fine. So check!

    Thanks!;)
    In my order I have the option of a spare tire in alloy like the others for 100€ instead of a steel.

    I'm not sure if this allowed on the forum, but I have 4 slightly used 19" Cantera wheels and tyres, which have done less than 1200 miles. They came off my Amarok. Maybe you can PM me if you're interested.

    Did you use your forum name with the configurator? ☺
    Maybe try a wheel cleaner. No rubbing/brushing etc. Just spray on-rinse off. Tiniest crevice gets cleaned up.

    Luís, this might be a market thing, but maybe double check. I believe you pay a little extra for an alloy wheel if you order the car with the standard alloys. If you pay for more expensive wheels the price includes an alloy spare.
