      Yes they clear coils but when I replaced my pads with mintex red box they no longer cleared the brakes. Had to grind the caliper and shave the pad, a 5mm spacer would fix it though and still shouldn't poke too much

      I went to memoryfab in union city and it cost me $300 for the set. I wouldn't recommended them though. If you can make the drive to vr wheels in city of industry they will do it for $200 and are a very good shop

      I mean what diameter hole did they drill. Like how much clearance around the bolt did you leave so you didn't get too close to the center?

      They drilled a stock bolt size cone seat hole. If you look from the front the hole is almost touching the center bore but looking from the back where the bolt really seats there is probably about a 1/2 inch distance from the centerbore
      Since the wheel is forged aluminum it is plenty room to be safe

      EDIT: 14mm cone seat hole

      No problem. If you need any specific pictures let me know and I'll do my best to get them to you fast
      You may also be able to run tuner lugs (which are smaller) so you could have a smaller hole. The shop I went to just didn't have an option for different hole sizes.

      205 has a small stretch and 215 will be square. Different brands of tires will stretch differently so I can only comment on 912's

      If you could get me some up close pictures of both the fronts of the faces and backs of the faces. Unless they're on the car then just the fronts.

      And I can speak about tires, 205/45 is the smallest you wanna go, nankangs sdrives stretch well and so do achillies sports

      Here are some I took while I was refinishing them

      Back (ok maybe a 1/4 inch between centerbore)


      Front


      I know it looks pretty sketchy (a les schwab wouldn't even mount them for me saying it was risky)
      But it is fine, I had a cheap set of multilug wheels that looked similar in the bolt pattern widths and those were fine for 2 years, and these are forged bbs which are a ton stronger

      I've never had a set v12 but a but a buddy did and I put them on for him, veeeeery soft side wall and he had issues with bubbles and cracking. Nitto neogens are decent and so are toyos. Falken 512s are my favs but they've been discontinued so 912s are the next best thing and the 452s are half decent

      Just daily driving no track days or anything. I know it looks bad from the pictures but like I said it is the same as a cheap set I had and those took a beating and never had a single sign of damage

      Btw your car was one of the ones that inspired me to get these wheels, and I'm loving the tdi build

      Aircraft grade paint stripper, preferably the one in the aerosol can since it's easier to use
      It takes multiple applications and if you are going to polish the lip be ready for a lot of work because apparently the compound of the metal is different than, say, an rs

      @unit zero: those polished hex caps look great hard to find a set of those now
