      yup, that's a pretty common size. fronts will have almost straight sidewalls and rears will have some stretch. check out www.tyrestretch.com for pics, there should be some examples of both on that...

      i wouldn't recommend it, that's a lot of tire for an 18 on a mk4. you may have the space for it in your wheel wells and arches but your speedometer is going to be off. assuming 225/40/18 is a fairly...

      i wouldnt recommend 9.5" wide wheels all around on stock suspension or even only a moderate drop. theyd be sticking out too far and would look like what some call "mexi-poke". if you lower the car,...

      215/45/17 is a common size if you don't plan to be super low. but if you are, most run 205/45/17 then. check the 17x8 section in the first link in my sig to see how that looks on 17x8 wheels :beer:

      yeah youll definitely need spacers to ensure the fronts clear the struts. also, you'll likely want to space them just for the sake of them not tucking so hard. if you still want them and will get...

      i can't say for certain since i'm not too familiar with putting wide wheels on stock suspension, but 9et30 may clear the front struts because the spring seat sits above the tire on the front struts,...

      Those 18x8 fronts would sit very similar to this if you went with a final offset of 22 (30mm adapters). This car has -2.1 camber, but i'm not positive if that's coming from different control...

      since they're 8" wide wheels you have some wiggle room in regards to final offset. if you want them to sit flush i'd recommend something along the lines of 20mm adapters up front and 25mm adapters in...

      35mm front and 38mm rear will work fine, you won't rub that much (if at all). i don't think you need to downsize your tire from 215/40/18 because of where your wheels outer position will be, but if...
