Yeah...30 mm narrower than the ones you just got. You got an extremely wide tire, on a wide wheel, with an aggressive offset.
The guy you got them from also had to run 8 mm spacers to clear his struts, just like I said. He is also lower than me and can pull off an aggressive fitment like that.
I'm not as dumb as most people think I am. I happen to know a thing or two about modifying a car and have been through enough wheels and tires to know what fits.
5x112 is not always a sure sign that it will fit.
I made a DIY for the fix to my wiper arm shutter issue. This issue has been addressed by Volkswagen, but never fixed.
HERE is the DIY.
Volkswagen replaced my wiper motor/transmission/linkage, wiper arms, and wiper blades under warranty and the issue was not fixed. I tried the electrical tape fix and it worked. Looking to help others with this DIY. Please rate it five stars.
