awesome thread. i've been wanting to dial in the offset of my wheels after i have my fenders rolled and this is exactly what i needed.
16x8 D90 et 52.3 with 25 & 30mm adapters
final et of 27.3 front and 22.3 rear with stock fenders
should i put the 30s up front and get 40s for the rear?
16x9 rear et12, 205/40 512s, 16x8 front et 20 205/40 512s

more pics! i see a very similar pic in january pvw of the same wheel.. tease
Alright... ill post some more. Ill also save you guys the trouble of saying something negative about the tire size/choice because i am not happy with them either. I had no choice other than to get the ones i did because at the time of purchase the ones i wanted were on a national back order and this left me with very little to choose from for the show season.
All random photos were not taken by me and thanks to those who did snap them.

what ET and tire size is that?
I would guess the tires are 195/40 all around and that the offsets are roughly et20ish front on a 16x7 and et7ish rear on a 16x8. Just guessing though.
Thats also why i want to run the low ET phone dials, they look alot better than the higher ET.
they sit under stock fenders is what makes me happy haha. I wanted to do as little body modification to my car as possible. Ill swap the jetta front but will keep the hood and stuff so i could put it back to stock if i wanted.

oh they will........im not going to halfass it...if the fenders need pulled they will get pulled....i promise they will look hot.
I was told the ET on the red car is about a 7 in the rear, 7mm wont make that much of a visual difference so Im hopeful. I was also told those are stock fenders other than being rolled.
The fronts are going to end up sitting about where an ET20 sits after I adjust the front suspension. As long as this control arm/axle idea works then the front will be fine....the rears will be delt with as time/money permits.
