Which alloys? The GTI type fitted as optional extra to non-GTI models had 185/60 r14 tyres as standard, and I believe the valver had 195/60 r14's.

GTi alloys are 5.5J, and are stamped as such.
16 valve alloys are 6J, and again they are stamped as such.
Valver rims are Speedline SL311's, but I cant remember the number for the 5.5J's off the top of my slightley inebriated head.
