Would size 235/45R17 fit on a b5 99' 1.8T passat? im sorry im new at this but everyone has to start somewhere.
If not im sure there are alternetives


PS: Its a stock passat, no changes have been made yet.

(I also posted this at the Wheel & Tire forum but i dont think the sizes are measured in the same way as in europe)

hi saito

the most common size for 17s is 225x45 17 but you could check the classifieds for info :thumbup:
hi 225/45-17 is the normal 17" size but a 235/45-17 will measure 9 mm more in total tyre 195/65-15 measures 635 mm and your 235/45-17 will measure 644 mm tall .hope that helps :)
You should not have problems with it, there are gus on Forum with that width and no rubbing probs. Downside is that your speedo will lie
