16x8 5x100 +25 what size tires would i run for a nice stretch. i suck at this so please help lol
just picked up a set of rs's yesterday, they are 16x8 et11, all around. i would like to keep the width the same, so i can actually rotate my tires. would i be better off doing a fill and redrill? or are adapters possible without having mexipoke?
car there going on

Fill and redrill is the only option with stock geometry suspension. Base or Plus suspension? With base, fronts will fit with a redrill and have light poke. With plus, even with a redrill, they are getting out there.
If running Mk2 front suspention, then fronts are adaptable, and with a early Mk2 rear beam, the rears would be adaptable as well.
thanks for the info and compliments, i actually think im going to be re-drilling my hubs, im going to look into it this weekend, but my plan is taking a 5x100 hub and re-drilling to 5x112. if it fits in the 4cyl. wheel bearing i dont see why it wouldnt work? and just redrill my rotor to 5x112. im gotta decide i was thinking about pressing in studs if there is room behind the hub. if not my plan is just tapping them to my stud thread size. and as for the rears im going to have to fill the threaded holes in my rotor and drill and tap them like the fronts. im not 100% sure if its going to work, but this weekend is going to be committed to that. and painting my vr block and start assembly so i can get it swapped in.
my reason for using a 5x100 hub (bolt pattern interference with 4x100 to 5x112)
i found all this info on vortex to, just thought i would share it again.

My question is about the rears. The lips are currently 0.5" and I want to replace them with 2" or 2.5". Would this work for the rears?
My fenders are stock btw and are not rolled/pulled
ok so i know this is the mk3 forum.. but a b4 wagon isn't far off, just a bit wider...
i have some OZ Mito II i'm building and i'd like to get some imput on tire size and adapter width..
the wheels are 5x114.3 and my car is 5x100..
i'm thinking that i'll run 18mm adapters up font and 18mm in the back?
which will give me a final of et27 up front and et16 out back
wheels in question

Im thinking about running the following:
Front: 7,5x16 ET 25
Rear 9x16 ET 20
Theres a picture above with the same rear (Even less, i would like to hear how much (And if any work) there has to be done to get them to fit decently on a stock body) And will they tuck(From what ive read on these pages, they will :-) ) in the front? I have a feeling the might hit my coilovers with ET25 in the front..
And lastly, which tyres?

Anyone know the widest tires I can run on a MK3 with 15x7 phone dials?
I'm currently running 195/50/15's and I'm running into traction issues. I run Koni Yellow's front and rear, rebound is set to 1 in the front and 5 in the rear. Neuspeed Race springs, 15mm lowering caps in the front and the rear is on the 2nd to last perch. It's about a 55/40 drop.
If I could run 225's or even 245's without running into rubbing issues or anything I'd be happy. I'd be willing to run wider wheels, or bigger ones, I have a set of 16x8's in the garage without tires.
I had a set of 94/95 GLX 15x6.5 BBS's on it when I was in the whole SWAP EVERY WHEEL phase, and I was using 205/50's. I was much lower than I am now, because I was on Ultra Low I's (Custom 55/40 drop now). The 205's rubbed.. bad.
I just need traction. The 15x7 phone dials with 20mm spacers F and 25 rear aren't cutting it. I have a set of BBS RS's that are 16x8's in the garage. my friend says I should put 205/40's on them but.. That won't do much good for traction.. I just want to go as wide as I can without having to worry about rubbing using 15" or 16" rims. The car (98 GT) is my weekend car and sometimes used daily.. Hence the no rubbing priority. I'm still trying to set up my suspension/rebound to get it set up for optimum traction. Currently I've tried almost every different set up/position and I'm at 1 rebound in the front and 5 in the rear. Launches good at part throttle, but spins til around 45MPH if it's floored.. Rims and tires are the last piece of the drivetrain build. Then I can finally move onto my exterior and interior.
