      Hey everyone... This is my first forum post other than marketplace.... I will soon be in this thread with photos. I have an 11 black JSW and on order I have coilovers, sway bars, and wheels coming in. Soon I will post up pics but for now the car has more of a range rover look.

      and all the cars here look fantastic and they are what convinced me to do coils on the jsw.

      Ditto. I painted my new wheels, got them on the car and am waiting to install my coils before posting pics. My '12 JSW is going to be blacker than Darth Vader...

      Nice. I've always dug that aired jsw.

      Here is my daily driver. This isn't exactly stanced (I hate that word) but it's not stock. It's a 10' TDI. This shot that is about 2 years old. Decided static on this one. FK Silverline Plus X and Raderwerks STP3 19x8.5 et45 all around (I should have done 9.5 in the rear).




      I've since sold the Raderwerk STP3's and preordered Klutch S14s which should be on in a few weeks.


      I freakin love this car.

      Nice picture! Look forward to seeing your new setup

      Where can I get these? I looked up the 1552 site and they show, 18's which is an option but are they sold anywhere else? (no 19 or 17)

      Is 18 all they ended up making?

      Well it also depends on how low/what tires you run too...

      Realistically, if your going to run aftermarket wheels and a drop you should always roll your fenders or find someone to do it. On MK5/6 you should also take out the top center fender liner screw and anchor as well.

      I have 18x9 +44 in the front with just the fender screw mod and no rubbing (unless I hit a large bump at speed). It all depends on ride height and tire size, if you're going low, use a tire with a smaller sidewall (225/35/18 or 215/40/18) and you'll probably be fine.

      so I ended up doing 18x8.5 +36 with a 225/40/18 Falken 512 ( tires run not very wide so they compare to 215/40/18)

      rears are perfect, front poke some.

      Once my H&R ultra lows get here and I dial the camber in Ill get some pictures of it all. Cant wait, Stretch and poke looks retarded at stock height.

      This. I'm on 18x8 +45 in the front only at about 24.5" ftg with 225/40 and I noticed last night 3-4 spots where the fender lip was starting to unfold (one pretty bad spot ). I took the wheels off and raised the car a bit until I can roll the fenders. I didn't think I was even close to needing a roll just looking at the static fitment.
