I was just wondering if anybody had any rubbing issues. I haven't bought either yet, but was about to get some springs. I was hoping to get 18" rims as well sometime in the future. Any pics of a 1.75" drop w/ 18" rims would be appreciated.
depends on the offset of the wheels. In the front you can probably go to about et32 and be ok, but it's cutting it close (you'll definitely need stiffer shocks), in the back, you can go to something like et25 or et20.
here are two examples of 18s+HR sports (et35)
V6 + SSR Competitions with 225/40-18 - no rubbing
V6 4 motion + BBS CH's with 235/40-18 no rubbing, but very close (et35)
Thanks Julian, that means alot coming from you!
I'm going to do a write up with Before and After Pictures with 8mm and 20mm spacers, Look for it soon!
Matt- Nothing else is needed. The parts that come in the little boxes that UPS drops off is all you'll require! (parts wise) The only "advice" I can give you is don't pay to notch the Billstiens (for the front). I did, and they are sitting on the stock notch. I could drop it a half an inch lower in the front, but I didn't want a rake job, I wanted as even as possible! But the H&R Sports and the Billstiens REALLY do go hand in hand.
Looking to purchase a set of Zuki 18x8 wheels. 5x112 with a +35mm offset. Will they fit. And can anyone tell me whats a good tire size to put on them. Looking for a wider look but i dont want and rubbing issues.
I'm considering purchasing a nice set of 17" Denver wheels to put on my 2003 Passat Wagon. I've seen a few photos of folks that have put Detroit wheels on their Passat, but I can't seem to find any with Denvers. Anyone have a pic they can post? Thanks!
Wondering if these will fit, they are 18"x8, 57.1 Center Bore with a +41 offset. I think they will, however what would be a reasonable size tire to run without throwing the speedo off too much, and preventing rubbing?
I've got a great set of OEM Madras I run in the good weather. I have the factory VW logo center caps, but would rather run a BBS logo. Does anyone know exactly what part I would look for or where to get them. Thanks in advance.
This is the opportunity for you to review a tire you own or have alot of expierence with. I would recommend the following format for the review:
1. The Brand/Model and Size ( Example: Goodyear Eagle F1 225/45R17) Also can include price and where purchased.
2. Tell us about your driving style.(...
