22" ftg front and 22 1/4" ftg rear

The old FK's still have a 1/2" of threads in the front and no perches in the rear.

15mm Adaptec 5x112 to 5x100 adapters all around, and a lot of camber up front.





















Whatcha think?

Awesome stance! Are those the 5x112 reps or are you running adapters with OEM wheels? I've always wanted to get a set of these for my b5.5 because i knew they'd look this good!

Looks good, just not sure you can turn with it setup at 22'' in the front, maybe again with the sunken setup it works.

I'm 1/2'' higher than you in the front running a 8,5j with et22 and even with my pulled fenders it rubs.

And I thought I was low till I saw this. Inspired me to out and measure mine; 24" front and back FTG. I can't imagine dailying any lower than this, and here you are 2" lower. Mind blown.

Thanks for all the kind words!

I have no skid plate, because the stock one dragged on the ground 24/7 and got ripped off on a poorly paved road.

It does rub when I turn, just not as much as you would think because it has quite a bit of camber from being so low.

Aristos are the only wheels I ever wanted for my B5, they are 18x7.5 with 205/40/18s on them.

The rub strips are real euro rub strips from ECS.

And my car is for sale, so if you or anyone you know is interested let me know!
