      Isn't this Steve Owen's JSW? Or just a look-alike?

      just a quick shot after work. I've got a few more from a recent shoot, but I've been too busy to edit/resize.

      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.

      really? I'm running 18x8 ET-48 here, 225/40 tires.. but with 10mm spacers up front (so it's ET-38 up front).. 24" FTG.. and I have no fender rubbing at all. I do rub on my front fender liners once in a while (this is with the 'fender liner mod', where the top-front screw mount is cut out), and the top of the fender liners in that area are fairly chewed up, but this is after 2.5 years (around 70k miles) of driving at this height, so that's to be expected.

      H&R Ultra Lows
      rear is all the way up and the front and about half way down, ride is amazing on these.
      Front fenders slightly rolled, fender screw mod and the fender tap pushed up.

      I was shocked to see the lip pulled down, too. It was only in a few isolated spots, so maybe it happened going into odd-angled parking lots or something. As you would expect, there is no noticeable rubbing while driving normally other than hard turns. I have the screw out, but haven't done anything with the tab or liner yet so I'm certain I rub on that when I push it. I'd been worried about the rears for the last few weeks until I saw this damage.

      I was doing some research yesterday and came across others that have bent the fender lips with similar wheel specs, so I guess it happens. My Goals have never looked sadder than they do now after I got used to having proper fitting wheels for a few weeks.

      well.. I take that back. The other day I was looking at my car and noticed that my left-front fender has been pulled down a little by the tire. So, after a good 75k miles at this ride height I will definitely be rolling my fenders to keep from tearing things up further

      no issues just do it slowly and take your time, I rolled mine last week with my roller and didnt even use heat and it came out perfect and no cracking.
