I know I am in the wrong forum but i tried the wheel and tire and got no answers. I am looking to put on Carlsson 18 by 9 rims with I think 235/35 tires. Will these fit on my 2001.5 V6 GLX sedan? What if I were to drop it an inch? Any input would greatly be appreciated. Thanks

Hmm... 2001.5... is yours a B5.5? You didn't mention the offset of the wheels. This will be key to determining whether they'll fit or not.

Width sounds OK for a B5.5 but not for a B5. I think 8.5" et35 is as wide as you can go on a B5 without rubbing (on a lowered vehicle) and that even requires rolling the fenders and running 225/40's.

Wow.. 33mm is cutting it close. That puts the tire 2mm closer to the edge of the fender than 35mm.

If you REALLY want to find out for sure if it'll fit, pick up the latest issue (April04) of EuroTuner. They have an entire article walking you through all the measurements to determine what will fit.
