So i have a 2004 passat 1.8t fwd. I have a chance to get a set of used Rotiform KPS’s. They are 18x8.5 et35. They were originally on a 16 golf r.

My concern is that im lowered 2.25” in the front with H&R sport springs and my current wheels are 18x8.5 et30 off of a c5 RS6 and they rub on right turns and grab the fender (not currently rolled fenders) and pull the lip down.

Do you think these would fit any better with less issues?

Current Wheels:

Rotiform:

Or these BBS RK1
17x8 et35


Thanks

Ed

While the et35 should be better, ideally it's best to roll the fenders. I have seen a couple of B5.5 with a 18x8.5 et35 still rub on turns when a dip is hit.
