      no one touches my wheels unless I know I can trust them and they know how important it is. It's as simple as that.

      Also.. why did you have such a hard time finding someone to patch your tire? I can get almost anyone to patch or plug (most prefer plug.. just because it's easier) here

      root..
      I had issues because the hole was somewhat close to the sidewall..
      if it had been in a different place, probably wouldnt have been an issue.

      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

      You're already pretty stretched now as well, right?
      Yes they are, 8.5" et30 rear et 37 front... my fenders already are f'ed and rear quarter panels lack paint, So now I really don't care Only people who really know what there looking at can tell.

      I worked installing tires for two years, it's really not that hard to do well.

      Ride height in 19's....


      I love my wheels. But whenever I see pics of my car, it still seems so high
      I'm on 19's with 35 tires
      How much would it drop my actual ride height to go to 18's on 35s?
      1 inch? Does it make that big of a difference?

      Approximately a half inch lower overall ground clearance. But your car might actually look higher because you'll be increasing the fender to tire gap by a half inch as well.

      Its really a new ALL ROAD sportwagen version He He He!!

      The truth is that exactly where I live the road work is TERRIBLE, so I have another set of 225 40 18 ready for change, these are 225 45 18 so they look big, but I don't want more sidewalls that look like something is inside trying to get out (bumps).

      My Beetle is a chick car and my wagon is a mom´s car. But I really don´t care about stereotypes.

      I really dig that interior. Where did you get the wood kit? I have the OEM one (haven't installed it yet) but it doesn't have the radio surrounds.

      howd you get your rear wheels to tuck in like that? or did it just happen when you dropped the car?

      .KIX. do your wheels wobble? That 3rd pic looks like they are off center, and there is an odd black hue around the rims.

      Beetle RSI Golf VI Sportwagen

      I am on 225 45 18 when they should have been 225 40 18, my original ports have 2 contis with 2 huge bumps on the sidewall, also my OZ on the RSi one Goodyear Eagle F1 has one sidebump, and after buying 2 wheels for my wife´s car I went to the safe side. Yep they look beefy but I am happy I don't have to inflate them like the Hindemburg. Also I changed the initial Screen on the RNS 510 with a personalized photo.

      The Wood Kit I bought in NY from a guy that sells on Evil BAy (ebay).

      My Beetle is a chick car and my wagon is a mom´s car. But I really don´t care about stereotypes.

      At least I got IRS, proper gauges and interior and a decent Hood lift strut"

      Installed 10mm spacers all around last weekend.

      No poke

      My only concern is that the spacer diameter is smaller than the wheel hub and rim hub. Should I be concerned??

      Spacer - 10mm

      Spacer - 10mm

      diameter?

      Some of H&R's spacers are like that and some are not. Not going to affect anything though.
