      Only way you'd be able to pull anything like that is with air and super camer. That offset is a little extreme for a MK6. As for finding wheels around here, goodluck. I had to order the futuras from Memoryfab.com. Sometimes you get lucky though. Luckily for us, 5x112 can run woble bolts for 5x114 pattern wheels.

      Ahh from the looks of those on the mkv forum they all needed pulled fenders to run them. Thinking about going 18x9.5 et30 Varrstoens ES 1.1.1 (25.1mm difference from 10.5 et30). Or 17x9 et20 BBS RS (12.7mm difference from 9.5 et30).
      Rota Grids 18x9.5 ET30 on static looks like this:

      Seems like i could pull it off with air.

      Thanks! Yes I can't wait. The shop seems pretty busy. They said by the end of this month though.
      I am, still not used to waking up every 2-3 hours at night. trying to find what part of that I can cherish though...

      With air, you can usually pull off just about anything.

      It isnt too bad, was expecting it to ride smoother than stock, I'd say its similar except when i hit large bumps. Still trying to find the sweet spot and need to play with the damper

      Does anyone one know if its better to run stiffer damper and lower spring rate vs softer damper and higher spring rate for comfort?

      Yes, bringing the car back tonight he has to take some measurements and see whats clunking around in the front.
      Still waiting on the shorten struts for the front and notch.

      Trying to avoid shipping. Anyone know where I can pick up a set of wobble bolts?

      Car looks awesome!

      Looks like i definitely need to get on air haha.

      If you don't mind me asking, how high do the airlifts go up front? i know the bagyards are ridiculous, but i hear the airlifts aren't quite as willing to get high.

      those works wouldn't do your air justice! you need to get WIIIIDE :p

      that, and i'm getting lazy about selling the wheels. i might just wait to see if i pull the trigger on air first.

      I'm willing to take that risk. And we can later judge. :p

      Lazy? I got your cash and a truck to pick the wheels up. All you need to do is open your hand for payment.

      Does anyone have a hook up on tires?
      This happened:

      Or selling a set of stock wheels?
