    Thread: Question about buying aftermarket rims

    1. 09-09-2011 10:34 PM #1
      I have a 09 rabbit 2.5l currently on stock 15 hubs. I want to buy aftermarket 17's but I'm unsure if these wheels will start to rub because of the tire size. Has anyone had problems like this before?

      my standard tires are 195/65/15, the ones i want are 225/45/17. My car is stock.

      this is the website of the wheels i want to buy.

      I don't see an offset listed on the website..

      edit- it says many offsets to fit many wheels, or something like that.
      17x7 with 225/45/17 is no problem. Just don't go crazy with the offset and you'll be good.

      the standard oem 17's are 17x7

      these are 17x7.5, i don't know if that .5 will make things difficult for me

      thanks for them, any other suggestions for other rims that will look good?
