      I want to hear if anyone has fitted 9.5" wide wheels either front or rear. If a 255mm tire fits fine, shouldn't a 9.5" wheel? 255 is nearly square to a 9.5 wide wheel.

      Yeah, I quoted myself. I really want to see if anyone has a good answer to this. It's the tires that rub, not the wheel, so 9.5" wide should work, right?

      a 9 inch wide wheel fits fine

      i don't see why i 9.5 wouldn't fit

      but, in the end, it all depends on the offset

      a 20 x 9.5 ET 30 is going to fit

      a 20 x 9.5 ET 45 may not

      20 x 10 offset 38 with 255 / 35 works !!!!!

      look at my tiguan

      I ordered myself 19x9'' wheels with an offset of 41....

      Anybody knows if that setup will look nice? will I need spacers to make it look fine??? and wide my tires should be if I want to play safe and keep my mags in good conditions as our roads are like a war field here....

      From what I've found the ideal is 19x9 ET33 with 255/40 tires as this is the stock VW size. With your setup and 255 tires you'll be 0.4" closer to suspension and 0.4" farther out under wheel well. It'll probably work but I don't think we've seen that exact size yet.

      an 8mm spacer will put those wheels at the same offset as the OEM 19s that VW offers

      i would do it like that

      Sweet, so if they work on all four corners I could easily run these all the way around with 255/40/19 tires:

      19x9.5 ET33

      I think I would rather have these:

      But I don't like the measurements as much and don't want to use spacers... 19x8.5 ET 38.

      Transfer, I'm also looking at getting some VMR wheels. 19x8.5 ET35 for the rear and 19x8.5 ET45 for the fronts. At the rear this equates to running 16mm spacers on my current wheels which I tried out for a few days to test for rubbing and scrubbing etc and it worked out fine. Maybe not the most aggressive poke but looked plenty good to me

      just ordered 19'' tires 255/40 BF GOODRICH G-FORCE TA KDW for 54$ a piece CAN...

      thanks guys for the infos!

      Why would you go with et45 in the front? That's higher than stock 17s. If you get some V710s I want to see them! I probably won't get wheels until like May.

      Umm.......... not higher than stock when you have 8.5" wheels vs 6.5" wheels it isn't, thats 14mm more poke than stock.

      Alright, opinions needed!
      I'm going with a budget summer wheelset due to the likelihood of the Golf R coming our way next year.

      So, Omanyt in 18x8 or RS6 18x8? Both in et35 and 245/45/18 rubber. Total cost $1k.



      I know these aren't Tigs, they're for example.

      Yeah I completely agree. The problem there is that offset is 45 and max tire width I would use is 245 so you're left with only 0.1" of poke over my stock 17s. Stock 19s have 0.8" poke over the 17s and the RS6 18x8 et35s have 0.5" poke.

      I want a little better stance and I don't want to use spacers. Also, 19s would add about $300 to the total package. Gotta go easy on the Tig upgrades if I want to trade our Rabbit for an R next year.

      Yeah looks like they are out there! That setup would be almost $400 more for wheels and $100 for tires which is no longer "budget" for me. The 18x8 set at powerwheelspro looks like better quality and is only $489, which is an awesome price. This is gonna end up my wife's car in a year and she doesn't care about wheels.

      oh sh*t I didn't see those 18x8 Omanyt are 5x100 bolt. Well that settles that then. As soon as winter decides it's officially done, I'll get the RS6 reps put on with Hankook V12 evo tires.
      EDIT: Changed my mind on the Hankooks. Going with Yokohama. I don't think I want a max performance tire.

      I was excited about the idea of 18 x 8 ET35 Omanyts for my Tig.

      Awesome. It looks just like it was meant for the Tig.

      My wish would be to find them in gunmetal, to go with my sapphire blue.

      Where did you buy your reps?

      hey kidshorty,
      how's the ride with the 45 tires? is it rough enough to ruin the ride comfort? i'm torn between 18 vs 19. i was thinking 18 was the official max from VW. i know the appearance is really awesome but i don't want to sacrifice ride comfort because this one's my daily driver.

      nope, my 245/45 rides like a dream, I actually threw the OEM 16s on one day this fall and the wife didn't even notice and she is a huge critic of ride quality. I already got one car dumped on big wheels and skinny tires that it tough on my ass, I didn't want two. I went with the 245/45 for a little extra cushion, it looks a bit rugged, and also fills the wheel gap a little since I'm not planning on doing anything other than springs for suspension. Plsu, they were like $88 each so I thought I would try that size.

      Anyone with any thoughts on using a 245/45/18 tire? It's something like 1.2% smaller diameter than stock. Actual 60mph = 60.7mph on speedo with that diameter. Is this significant for gear ratios and rpms?

      I ask because the wheels I'm planning on getting are 18x8 and the tires I want don't come in 235/50. 255/45 is too fat for 18x8.
