i'm trying to sell my 16" steelies w/ snow tires (205/55/16)and only offers i'm getting is from 06 gti owners asking if they'll fit, i know the bolt pattern is the same, anyone know if the offset will work and clear brakes o.k.?
Stock brakes are designed not to stick out farther than the outside face of the hub, so there should be zero issues with the sides of the wheels scraping against the sides of the calipers. As for diameter compatibility, that depends on what the smallest stock wheel size is for a 2006 GTI. If it's 16" or less, then the GTI's brakes will have a small enough diameter to fit.
