      yeah I guess those tires are Audi size...I bought them from a place that parts them out.

      why would you run a 225/f and a 215/r?

      the 40 would be more ideal for 9.75 unless thats the look you going for.....

      depending on the suspension, height, et, etc will alter things around. you should fit the wheel on first then go from there.

      Thanks for the feedback, i think i might just go with 215/40/18 all around and figure out my spacer size after

      Here is the deal, i am going on air soon and i hate my current fitment. Front has way to much poke compared to rear.

      et55-56
      17x9.5 all around
      215/45/17
      33 mm rear and 38mm rear adapters on.

      Car is now lower, but what should i run. 36mm front 40mm rear? i want more poke in rear then front. But i also want it to sit right when i go on air. Or should i look for a different setup. (futuras )

      I need new rear tires,

      Right now im running 225/40/18 512's but I dont think I will be going with 512's this time around.

      If I go with another tire should I go with something 215/40/18? or another 225/40/18? I'm guessing the stretch will be a little less on a tire that's not a 512.

      I found an ns-II on tyrestretch.com in a 215/40/18 and liked the stretch. Any other tires to recommend?

      Thanks for looking

      So right now i have my winter wheel/tire setup on my MKIV Gti. (16" Montreal II's 205/55 tires) with 12mm spacers in the front only because without them my tires would rub the struts. I'm sitting on FK Streetlines. My fronts are around 3.5" from the ground. Im looking at these TSW Nurburgring's. They're 17" by 8 width. The offsets are 35mm or 45mm. I'm unsure of which offset i should choose as i dont really want poke, but i also dont want them deep in the wheel well either. Tire size 205/45 too? If someone could give me some insight that would be awesome, thanks.

      go with the et35 on with that tire size you have in mind, unless you aren't that low, then I'd go with a 215
