Finding the perfect set of wheels takes time, dedication, and, for a quality set of wheels, money. One has to decide if they want to tuck 20″ wheels as far into their fender as possible, or if they want to fit 18″ wheels lip-to-fender, and making sure they fit just right is key. Ivan was spot on with his Futuras, taking every last detail into consideration.
His MK4 sits lip-to-fender thanks to his air ride suspension, and the wheels still look just as good when he’s on the move. Aside from the wheels, Ivan has added little touches that really flow well with his Jetta. His headlight covers and badgeless grille give the front of his car a clean look, while his shaved trunk and all red taillights continue the simple and clean character.
As far as the MK4 platform goes, some people think that everything has already been done. From wheels to paint, even to motor swaps, there are a lot of unique builds out there. You just need to find what makes your build right in your own eyes, and remember that your car is for you, not for everyone else.
