OK so i did a little test fitting today just to try and figure out the offset on these. The wheels are Cargraphic Racin 19's. the thing is, the offset is not written or stamped anywhere on these wheels. :bang head:
so far Ive found out i need at least a 20mm spacer in the front just to clear the caliper, and the rears fit no problem, which kinda sucks because the offset in the rear is gonna be way to far in compared to the front after I get the spacers on. guess I'm gonna have to get some for the rear too shooting for final offsets of +33 front +27 rear.

Well, finally got around to putting my new front rotors on the Tiguan yesterday. Looks good, and stops good now as well. Old ones were pretty warped and pitted. Can definitely tell this car started its life up north. Passenger side one was rusted on pretty badly. But, all done, and car still stops. LOL. Also, learned my old floor jack doesn't work with the Tig like it did with the Jetta. Won't go high enough. So, I got to use my widowmaker as well. LOL.

Morio -- those wheels are phuckin hot man!!! I'm starting to dig a smaller diameter wheel hence why I flirted with buying Caner's rare Kinesis wheels at the time. The stance those things give are NICE!! In due time i'll start getting all my parts sorted including new wheels
I am currently getting my parts list together for all of my maintenance stuff as once I start my air project I do not wanna run into a scenario where "Well with all this stuff off we should replace this too" and have to order more parts.
Main things I'm working on gathering now are:
- A/C Fan (not CHEAP! )
Fan Relay (not CHEAP! )
OEM Rotors & Pads
Inner CV boots
misc. suspension stuff (bushings etc)
Ok, and this is a very very last minute idea FOR TOMORROW How about we switch things up a bit. BYOB and BYOBBQ at MY PLACE . ?????
If this sounds good to you, POST UP!! . Also, let's start earlier than 8:00 PM by starting at say 7:00 PM . Would wanna wrap things up by no later than 10:30 that night but thought this might be a way for everybody to come out and enjoy a GTG.
POST UP WHETHER OR NOT YOU LIKE THIS IDEA! If we don't like it, we'll all goto the DH as usual.
I'd come over for a BBQ GTG but tomorrow is our anniversary.
Hell yeah, I'm always down for BBQ. Let me know if I can bring some meat. I've got several dozen hamburger patties in my freezer that are already shaped and ready to cook.
Lol just saw that your post says BYOBBQ. So I'll just bring a ton of meat and share
Only thing I don't have are buns and cheese.
