      What size are the tires? I just put on some B7 S4 split seven spokes on my JSW. They are 18X8 +42, but the tires are 235/40, and I'm afraid they're gonna rub once i put the coilovers on. They be lookin WIDE up front...

      Did you roll/pull?

      pulling fenders is very different from rolling... you can tell he hasn't pulled the fenders just from that photo.

      Rolled...

      Pulled...

      The difference is also exaggerated because the wheels were shaved from ET35 to ET42, but you get the idea. The car's a bit more Coke bottle shaped.

      Oh, on mine that's easy. I'll be putting in the S3 intercooler coming out of my Golf R when I put the upgrade in that. Also, my rain/light sensor came in so when I can find the time I'll have to do that too.

      Nothing for sure yet. If I put it up for sale it would be for it as is with all the mods and at a price that justifies that, i.e. would only sell if the right person comes along wanting it modded. I've no desire to start parting it. I still love the car, don't get me wrong. I'm only starting to think about it because I'm starting to realize how much I need a truck—something big and diesel. The big thing that is holding me back, aside from really still enjoying the car, is that the fuel economy of the wagen still makes the most sense for my commute.

      Those are gonna look awesome! Can't wait to see them. Porsche center cap would add some nice color but it's not going on Porsche. Just wouldn't feel right. I'm sure you'll get that figured out. Cheers

      Only thing im kind of worried about is the extra rubbing. I already rub with 8.5" et30 and im going to 9" et28... however im running just a bit of camber right now and can mess with that auite a bit. I don't like the look of TOO much camber though

      haha... rubbing is definitely going to be an issue for you. I started to tear into my fenders up front after I added the 10mm spacers (to clear my brakes). You'll be adding a similar amount when going to those wheels.

      You're already pretty stretched now as well, right?

      2011 tdi jsw
      04-26-2012 03:22 AM #4197



      So I will leave this shop unnamed as they are actively engaged in fixing this problem.....

      Last week I got a nail in my tire. About an inch from the side wall
      Extremely low leak. My tpms would alarm every other day so I guess I was losing a lb a day or so
      Anyhow, no one wants to patch or plug a tire anymore due to liability reasons...
      I was not about to replace a tire that had less than 10k on it so I found someone

      After it was repaired, they let a brand new person mount the tire back on the rim ( the new DID NOT do the tire repair)

      This person wrecked the f*ck out of my rim. Scrapes like curbing all around the outer rim
      Deep scrapes inside each lug from using a nut that was too big
      Also some deep scratches inside a spoke. How the F?!?!?
      When he took the weights off, he used a screwdriver to pry them off and gouged the crap out of that area. Not to mention left all the adhesive everywhere
      Also minute scratches all around

      I was beyond furious

      The shop manager apologized profusely and offered to buy a new wheel
      However, the manufacturer has a four month back order
      So I agreed that I would find an alloy repair guy and have it fixed and re powder coated
      They will foot the bill and if the repair isn't perfect, they will buy a new wheel

      So here I am, rolling retarded on one stock Porto on snows

      I took a couple photos but it's midnight with a camera phone. Hard to capture all the wreckage

      Just my .o2
      Be aware of who is touching your car
      Yes. I am aware it's just a Jetta. But it's my Jetta. And I baby her

      couple dudes in town have them, every time i see one, i want one and think how the wagon sucks and i want a raptor lol. or a big power wagon. lol. so stupid for me but would be fun.
      Power Wagon is pretty dope, and along the lines of what I'd want. My first choice would be a GMC 3500HD, Crew Cab, Dually, long bed. All the big trucks are $$ though. I'd have to sell the wagen and then probably daily drive one of our other cars for a while to save up more for a down payment to get a realistic payment on one, lol.

      Tim, wheels are boss. Can't wait to see them mounted. But, yeah you're probably gonna rub pretty good.

      macsac,
      I hear you. I hate hate hate having to have other people work on my car...especially tire shops. 99% of the tire places I've had to deal with have some bone head doing things, who doesn't give a crap about doing a quality job.
