Good Lord how the heck can you turn? I have 19's as well with a 35 mm offset. If the offset was any different then I would be screwed for turning and I am not as low as you? I notice your offset must be a 40 or so? Since your rims appear to me more tucked in then mine would be? Also what springs/shocks are you running? I have the Nuespeed sports and the Bilstien Sport shocks..................... :bow: sexy!

A little weird how the rear wheels are pushed so far towards the front of the car... that would bother me. As would bottoming out all the time.

spooled, is that rolling height or show height? Do you have a similar shot of the fronts? Are you running 255s in the rear? Rolled fenders I assume?

that rolling shot is with one person and 2 18" wheels in the back...

that still shot of the wheel is with 2 people sitting on the hatch....

the offsets are 35 mm up front..the b5.5's have a bit more clearence, i was weary of that offset due to the 19's i had on my old b5 wagon rubbed...i also rolled the front fenders a bit for a lil bit more clearence..i can actually go lower in the front if i wanted to, still lots of room...these 19's are only .40" taller than my 18's...i run a 225/35/19 up front...

the rears are 19x9.5 with a 47mm offset, i spaced them out 5mm so offset is now 42mm with a 245/35/19 tire...this set-up actyually rides 100% better than my 18" set-up..i love the ride now...
