    So I just bought some wheels and I had looked at a bunch of pictures on fitment industries to decide what wheel size I wanted to go with. I got some 18x8.5 +35 offset and i have 225/40/18s tires to go with it. When I lined them up and they poked a good amount, like more than it seemed in the...

    About 2 years ago I had 4 Dunlop Conquest Touring tires installed on my 2015 Passat. About 5 months ago, less than 15,000 miles we noticed a groaning sound coming from the passenger side rear. I had all 4 tires rotated and now the noise is coming from the passenger side front. This was more...

    I live in Seattle, where most of the winter is spent driving in rain, except for weekends where I drive up to the mountains for skiing. My one and only current car is a '98 Passat 1.8T FWD which is on its last legs at ~250k miles. I will probably be looking for a new AWD vehicle in the spring...

    Because it's Friday, we're taking a look back at some of our favorite automotive/DIY/tool deals we spotted over the course of the week. Tools and tires were the big winners, though we also spotted a massive out-of-category deal that we opted to share at the bottom of this list. 64% OFF...

    I'm new to VW and to my Passat. It's 2010 Wagon highline, 6spd I'm going to need winter tires and would like to get rims (steel if possible) for winter. Can I put on 16" rims even if my stock ones are the 18"'s ? Will it be too much sidewall? What size should I be looking at putting on if...

    I have a set of 4 Wheels and tires from a 2001 Audi TT, MSW, good condition. They were used for autocross. Tires are OK, enough to go through a summer, but are 2013 build date and probably shouldn't be used after this year. Looking for $200 OBO. Prefer something local because I don't have the...

    Is anyone running 18x8 on a b5.5 with 225/40/18? If so how low did you go without fender rolling and with that tire setup you shouldn't have to stretch right

    I have a 17 Passat 1.8 SE Tsi and would like to know what would be a good set of either all season or winter tires. The Hankook Kinergry tires are pretty noisy and have terrible snow reviews. I have only had the car for 7 months now and have not yet experienced these tires in the snow. My old...

    Hi folks, Have had the Continental PureContact tires on there the last few years but they're shot and need new rubber before winter rolls into NJ. The car is stock and the original Goodyear tires were noisy as hell. So I'm looking for a good quality tire that isn't noisy and which will work...

    Hey all, Just joined the forum today. My 2012 passat 3.6L V6 is in need of some new tires. Looking for something different than the Goodyear LS2 tires that it had from the dealers lot. Thinking of going with Continental Purecontact 235/45 R18 Any suggestions, experiences, are most welcomed.:)
  14. Wheel and Tire Forum
    My 2015 Passat had the rotten "Hankook" OEM tires 235x45x18. Tires were quite noisy. I also did not like those tiny "45" sidewalls and cannot see how some people run tires so low it's ridiculous, they might as well run on the rims. After doing a fair amount of research I changed to General...

    Just installed some 17" Classix with tires that match the Passat's factory tire diameter (to keep the speedo the same). There's not rubbing anywhere, but the fronts are about 3/8"-1/2" from the control arm. A test drive shows no rubbing but it still scares me. Is it ok to drive like this? Also...
