    Thread: whos running wide tires? 235 or greater

    1. 02-17-2010 03:05 PM #51
      It's like running 4 and 1/2 tires! Can those fit under a mkv without modifying the fenders, having them stick out from underneath the fenders, or having a ridiculous amount of camber?

      i keep my toe in spec.

      Exactly.
      Everyone is always under the impression that a little big of negative camber will kill tires, when really it's the toe that makes all the difference.

      that picture is on my 35mm spring set...with the 50mm it might need a little modification to fit the 245's but its doable

      Anyone running 235/35/18 on Hufs? Rubbing issues? My Michelin Pilot Sport PS2s are getting near the end of their life cycle and looking at Conti ExtremeContact DW because they come in that size. Hmmmmmmm

      Anyone? Would really like the extra width but do not want rubbing with the Hufs on suspension components.

      235/35 is shorter than stock , so it shouldn't rub
      even if your lowered

      i love the 245s on the front mounted on the classix. does anyone have a jetta on 245's with classix slightly lowered? i'd like to run a square set up and am not sure how the offsets compare to the golf's.

      Quick question: How much trouble would I have using a 245/40/18 or 245/35/18 tire on an 18x8 ET 45 wheel (OEM B6 S4 wheel)? I'm running slightly lower on Bilstein PSS9 coilovers. I know pretty much anything is possible, but can this setup be accomplished without rolling the fenders or using camber plates?

      245/35 and you won't have any probs... just take out the fender screw.
      no fender mods required
