Can i make these fit on a MK4..??
( Not these wheels, but better ones.. )
There 5x120, so i need spacers.. ( 20 mm )
Will this fit..??
Or do they come to wide..??
Never seen a MK4 with this wheels, and i think the would look great..!!

and this is about what it'd look like in the back with a 20mm spacer (again a 205/40/18 tire):
20mm up front would poke just a little less than this, and the rear would be just a bit past flush.

you might be able to mount those front wheels up as-is, but it'll be close. since different coilovers can be different sizes, it's hard to say for certain if 9et25 will clear or not. i'd recommend just mounting them up and seeing for yourself.
you could add a 3mm spacer (and not have to get longer lugs) if you needed to and that would clear for you, or just throw the 8mm ones on right away and deal with the poke. the 10's in the back will fit with no spacers needed and are going to poke anyway so the 8mm up front would match that pretty well
this would be very similar to how your car would sit (sorry the pics arent the greatest):
looking into gettting 18 x 8.5 et 35 all around with 225-40-18s
i have 18 x 7.5 rc's now (et38?) with 225-40-18s with 20mm spacers in the rear and 10mm spacers up front
front fenders slightly rolled
im bottomed out on jom coils, rear perches removed, (maybe like 23.75 ftg all around. not positive)
looking for flush in the front and flush or alittle poke in the rear.
could i use any of the spacers i have? and will the fronts rub the coilover with no spacer up front?

not to mention my spacers are supposed to go in the trade and i would have to add cash on top to keep them so just trying to figure out the specs ahead of time
if that's the case, with a 15mm adapter those wheels would poke a lot up front. it'd be doable but it'd look a bit odd without any fender work. are the lug holes covered by a centercap? if so, you could consider getting them redrilled. otherwise, i'd personally look for something else.
for visual reference, you'd poke 3mm more up front than this car:
Front 18x7.5 et 50
-want it to sit flush, also need tire size
Rear: 18x 10 et 65
- want a slight poke and tire size
Not looking for crazy stretch but don't want meaty tires either. Any help is good, havnt gotten the wheels yet I just want to see what ill be getting myself into before I make the dive. Thanks!
Edit: on ultimos and currently 24 ftg ( I think)
looking for the winter setup.. so my friend got oem merc wheels
they are: 16x7.5 et51
i running on 15mm adapters
put them on car... and got this on front, final offset is ET36
i can put 1 finger there
is it normal to drive so? later, i'll put stock suspension.
need you opinion

Tires and spacer suggestions also these will be on a jetta

i've seen some pics of people driving with only 1-2mm of space
15mm up front with 215/40/18 tire
8-10mm in the back with 225/40/18 tire
i recommend the 8-10mm in the back because 5mm spacers do not have a hubcentric lip on them which could cause some vibration. so an 8-10 will be fine and won't poke too much for you
it'd look very similar to this car (your fronts would be out a little more which would put you closer to flush; the rears would be very close to these pics as well)
