  1. Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    Im doing the inevitable and lowering my B6 1.9tdi as it will look amazing. Has anyone had any problems doing so? And will i encounter any problems? I don't mean problems like scraping or anything obvious like that, but more like i may shear a drive shaft (like i did on my A4) or pop the drive...

    Thought I'd pass along my experience with offsets and tire sizes on a B6 wagon, in case other B6 owners are contemplating using non-OEM wheel sizes and offsets. The car is an '08 Lux Wagon and sits 1.75" lower on H&R springs. I initially installed a 19 x 8.5 ET45 Rotiform NUE with a 235/35/19...

    I was planning on getting a set of 17" RS6 reps with standard 225/45 tires. When searching for pictures I just seemed to get massive confusion about the fit. They're 5x112 so they'll definitely fit, but do I need spacers or anything? I didn't think I'd need to worry about rubbing. Aside from...

    Hi guys just wondering, I can get a smoking deal on some 18" rims, but the only thing is they have a 35mm offset versus the factory 45mm, does that make that much of a difference, thank you guys.

  11. Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    What's the current wheel offset for the 17" and 18" wheels for the new B6 Passats. I heard for the 18" Titanium package wheels that VW Service Advisors are installing spacers to prevent rubbing. I'm planning on dropping my 4Mo with H&R's and I have a new set of RGR's coming down the pipe...

    My old wheels were 8.5" wide with a 35 ET and I loved the way they fit. They were perfectly flush with the fenders and gave the car the stance I was looking for. My "new" wheel choice is only 8.0" wide and is offered in 35, 42, 45 ET. I'm assuming I want the 35. Will these new wheels sit...

  15. Wheel and Tire Forum
    I'm having a hard time understanding and distinguishing between the differences of offsets and bolt patterns. I read of 35mm offsets and of 5x122mm bolt patterns but this doesn't tell me much. I am lookign for aftermarket alloys but have no idea what my current Passat has. I have an OEM 2002...

    I know this isn't B5 related, but it's the same family so :-P but does anyone know if the offset for an S6 the same as an A4, and can I use rims from an A4 on an S6. Any info would be greatly appreciated.
  17. Wheel and Tire Forum
    I was just offered a set of rims super cheap, but the offset is ET41. Rims size is 16x7...will it fit? Thanks. (I have yet to figure out all the offset calculations).
