      ha ha thanks well i guess i needed to give a couple more details...the wheels are 19x8 et44.
      so should i get a 8mm or 10mm for the rear? running 235's which shouldnt be a huge problem. while we're at it, what should i do for the front?
      i was good with my MKV GLI but the CC is obviously different. thanks! wheels should be here this upcoming week. just not sure when they are going on b/c of all this damn snow

      For the front I would do an 11mm hub centric spacer and an 8 mm spacer in the back...That would put it to the same specs i am currently running but everyone has their own thing
      Let us know what you end up going with

      Wayne you can go with a 10 mm or an 8 mm...the benefit of a 10 mm is that they usually come with a lip so its a lot easier to mount the rims and also they are usually Hub-Centric! Now for the front I did an 11 mm on my car putting my offset at an et30 because the front tuck in a lot more than they do in the back.
      So for the front I would do an 11mm hub centric spacer and an 8 but everyone has their own thing
      Let us know what you end up going with

      You are lowered, when the car hasnt been lowered yet which IIRC his is not, then a larger spacer isnt needed for the front. The reason you need it as you go lower is because of the suspension design bringing the hub in to reduce rubbing. I have an 11mm on mine as well but I also am lowered on H&Rs.

      Thats true but I remember him talking about putting on some sort of coilover suspension in previous post's...I'd say the best thing to do is see the rims on the car and then get the spacers to get the achievable stance he is looking for

      Don't know of anyone on them in CCs yet but I know me and two other people who will be soon. I'm trying to tuck a wee bit in the rear. The ride in a GTI can be a little stiff but they are crazy adjustable and I am not trying to ride so low that I have to have it super tight to keep from rubbing so I think Ill be alright.

      It sucks that aftermarket groups dont see the CC as a viable market. MKV it is!!

      well i remember the first thing i noticed when i got the CC was the weight compared to my MKV GLI...though the CC feels real slow stock ha ha, but i had just sold my H&R coils i had on my GLI when i found out they would work...but i decided to get the Ultralows b/c i'm a huge H&R fanboi.


      that was with the regular H&R's...so i had to go with the ultralows this time around especially for the CC. i'll have my suspension on as soon as it gets here. as for the wheels...the weather is killing me!

      I'm not sure why people talk about the CC being a lot heavier than other VW's.
      For example, it's only 70 pounds heavier than the jetta. Jetta is 3230 and the CC is 3300.

      its also 300 lbs, or 10%, heavier than a GTI. Most MKV setups are for GTIs which is why it gets brought up in a suspension thread.

      I agree... though it will take some time. And I do understand why companies like FK haven't developed a set yet.... there aren't going to be a lot of CC owners who want to be really low and can cope with a stiff ride.
