      the picture above is the front strut and wheel..it's hard to see exactly here, because of this freakin' camera...couldn't get a shot facing the wheel/strut straight on...but..the gap between the wheel and strut is so small that it won't fit the tip of my pinkey through it, just so you have an idea..



      the above picture is of the rear strut and wheel...there is a little more of a gap here..i placed my key fob between the wheel and strut so you guys can get an idea..the key will not fit through the gap, even if i forced it...it's about 3/16" narrower than the width of the key...did i confuse you? lol..

      wow thats super close/tight fitment, did you know the wheels were going to be that close or did you mount them up hoping for the best? I'm planning on ordering some custom 3 piece wheels and want to get the offsets right...was hoping to run 9's/10's but DAYUUUM thats close...

      I was certain about the outer lip/fender fitment, but i was still a bit unsure about the inner lip, specially fitting 9's in the front and 10's in the rear with such a high offset...and when the car is sitting at normal ride height, the inner lips actually sit even a tad bit closer to the struts.. my rears are et51 and front are et42 or (or 44, i forget)...the offset in the front can not be like a single mm higher...it's already too close for comfort..

      depends what kind of fitment you're looking for...i don't think there is any way to tuck 10's in the rear, unless you had a lower offset and some ridiculous amount of camber, which i definitely wouldn't reccomend...and the you can tuck 9's in the front, shouldn't be a problem..but it is one hell of a tight fit...i'm finally trying to get around to have some time to roll and pull my fenders, specially the fronts....it's just a matter of time...i wish we had like 10 extra hours in a day..

      thanks dude, i appreciate it!

      9:05 PM UPDATE:

      nothing special, and not really GLI related but...just little goodies for my camera that came in today..my old adapters broke, so i ordered some new ones..hopefully these are a little more durable. what does this mean? photoshoot? yes. soon enough!

      have i mentioned how much i love ordering stuff online and then receiving it in the mail? for some reason, it's so much more exciting than just going to a store and purchasing something.
