Hey, so im planning to buy new rims for my passat b5.5 2002 stock suspension. So i found rims R17 ET40 8J. I need to know if they will fit and look. Is spacers option here? And second about tyres - 215 or better 225 with 45 width. Thanks

225/45/17 is the OEM size in 17" for the B5.5. Same overall diameter as the 15" and 16" stock sizes. ET30-35 would be better. Make sure you get ones with a 57.1mm center bore or centering rings in that dimension.
Here's a good site to figure that out. Short answer is that it should be fine. Just need to know your stock wheel dimensions to compare.
225/45/17. That is the stock tyre size for 17's on the B5.5
