This has got to be the most frequently asked question...Like Salty said, it all depends on offset, width and tire size...in the meantime here's two pic's of my Passat with 19's. :)

Re: wheels

Hi, thanks for the pictures. The wheels that I´m buying are 19x8, 35mm offset and the tires are 235/35/19.

Now you have more to tell me, how low can I go with my wheels.

Anything in the 1" to 1-1/2" range and you'll be fine. Any lower and you might encounter rubbing issues, since the wheels are a 35mm offset. Ideally you'd want an offset a little closer to 40mm, to pull the wheels in just a touch more.
