      If you are just lowering it on springs and choose the correct tire, you shouldn't rub much at all.

      I am running an 8.5 et38 on my wagon in the front, lowered on KW's and running a 205 tire and I don't rub. If you are trying to run a 225 you will have issues.

      You can buy ULs from tire rack or ECS.

      Make sure to choose the JSW specific ones.
      Yes, we do carry the Ultra Low Coilover Kit -

      After seeing Biggu's car in person and hearing how he likes them, I'm tempted to ditch my fk's for some ultra lows.

      I want to ask it here since you guys have played with offsets:

      19 by 8 with 215/35/19 and 19 by 9.5 215/35/19 on H&R race springs with spring stops (OEM stops, i was told they can be used on aftermarket springs as well).


      I'm running a lot of stretch to avoid rubbing, i don't want to mess up my fenders but I want the rear dish. Do you guys think i'll be OK? I'm not going too low so hopefully no rubbing.


      Thanks guys.

      Ya you will be fine, be sure to trim the bump stops some. Also do the fender screw mod too.

      Just wondering how my BBS wheels are going to fit. The size and specs are below, but I'm planning on going with ultra lows to drop it a little more.

      BBS Rs
      262 17x8 et35
      321 17 x9 et45

      Right now they are getting painted, polished and re-drilled. They should be done tomorrow just need tires, and coil-overers.

      Just noticed you're in cleveland, how is your JSW coming along? Also, the bump stops you think should be trimmed are the ones i'm purchasing correct? I didn't think I had any factory ones in currently.

      One more thing, do you work at ECS?

      Well I need to sell the gti 1st, a RS jsw just came in to my local dealer (amherst oh / where Im from) with everything I want!

      Trim the stock(current) or the new ones(which dont come with most) - i cut mine down a lot with my current air set up on the gti. When I was on fk coils only trimmed the 1st notch.

      Yes, I do work at ECS

      Im getting a 19x8.5 ET35 wheels, and planning on lowering with koni coil overs. And after reading this thread, it means that the offset of the wheels are a bad idea? No matter what size of tires Im getting?

      Yeah I am hoping to have my car together for the Great Lakes show which is coming up in a week now just waiting for my wheels

      I love my Ultra Lows they are great only thing I can say is they mean what they say on how far it drops your car you can be low or slammed and that's all you have for adjustment options
