      Might get a good deal on some 165 45 15s but I'm doubting it's safety. Car in question VR Jetta.

      yeah, that shot was taken at 7:30 this morning. just pulled out of the garage, and wanted a clean car pic. The car is dropped a good amount, and can barely fit my finger between the tire and fender.

      Having gone 16", 17" and 18" on my VR I have decided to go with 15s after spending some time on vortex.

      We tend not to see many mk3s on 15s over in the UK (apart from stock) but I started thinking about it after seeing you guys getting your cars looking great on them.

      Heres mine, just bolted them up and now its time to take them off to refurb, get some better tyres and sort the stance.
