      the TSW's will stick out 26mm more than your Montreals.

      Will this fit on my mk4 jetta?:

      16x7.5 et 25
      16x9 et 25

      205/55 all around.

      Sizes and offset can be played with. I have 8mm spacers up front right now, but they don't need to be used. I'm not wanting poke really, just flush with the fender.

      Thank you!

      that'll work fronts will be almost flush, just a tad bit tucked and the rears will poke only a little bit.

      also, if you look at the Mk4 Wheel Offset and Stance Picture Index you can see a 9 et25 listed. that will show you a picture of what yours will look like in the rear, except for the fact that your wheels are 16's.

      9.5 widened longbeach

      ET63.4

      What's the best thickness of spacer i need to fit little poke rear, more flush than poke front (little poke)?

      Well, What's the perfect offset for 9.5 inch wheels on a mk4 Jetta?

      Thinking of 35mm rear for an final ET28.4 et maybe 25mm in front for final ET38.4?

      215/45 should fit perfectly for the stretch?

      Thank you all!

      215/45 will be fine but you are going to want to have your offsets be around 20ish. I'm pretty sure 22 is the highest you can go with it clearing your coil.

      Not gonna lie it all just sounds like a bad idea

      I checked about this info and the highest i can go is near 28mm.

      So, i decide to make two of them 8.5 inch, which will probably give me more facility for the final setting for the front axle.

      So, 40mm spacers for rear wheels (9.5) for final ET23.4, and 33mm spacers for front wheels (8.5) for final ET17.7

      That's ok i think?

      But, because now i'm not going to ride a squared setup, what's the correct size of tires i need to have an almost perfect overall diameter between front and rear?

      215/45/17 rear
      205/45/17 front?
      215/40/17 front?

      Would like to run 205/45, but want to be sure it's going to fit well...

      Need approbation plz!

      Thank you!

      yup, those will clear your coilovers. will want to roll your front fenders though

      sorry for my bad english
      you can get away with a 20mm up front. for the back 15-20mm will work well. and yes, definitely roll your front fenders!

      the rear is gonna poke quite a bit, but if you want to get into a little fender work or can learn to just deal with it you shouldnt have issues managing that. everything else looks good, tires sure are going to be nice and stretched

      yup, that will work but the fronts are going to poke a little, they won't be flush. is that final offset of 20 with or without spacers? if you can get a smaller spacer, it wouldnt hurt for achieving the look you want

      sorry about that, i didnt see your 2nd post about changing to staggered 8.5f and 9.5r. those will work for sure, i'd even consider going with a slightly smaller adapter up front. 8.5et35 is somewhat of a magic number for being flush up front so you could drop to even a 20-25mm adapter if you wanted. rear will poke a little bit but in a good way.

      rears will look almost identical to this, a little bit of poke.

      in regards to being hubcentric, you can likely find adapters that have an inner bore (the part that sits on your cars hub) of 57.1mm and with an outer bore (the lip the wheel will sit on) of 74.1mm. if you can't find adapters with the outer bore you need, that's where you'll need to install hubcentric rings. ecstuning or adaptitusa should have what you need for adapters though, if not try posting in the classifides. i know some people will custom make adapters to your specs


      Thanks alot! Looking to order adaptors this week. Will loom into ecstuning and the other brand and see what they offer!

      Picking up a set of wheels pretty soon and curious to see if they will fit...

      18x8 et35 audi pattern. Going to run 5x100-5x112 15mm adapters.. Which should give me a final of et20 all the way around.. Is that going to look like total ass or? I really want to run these wheels but them starting with et35 offset its not giving me much of an option.. Thanks Guys

      yes, you will have about 12mm less poke than that picture up front. i posted that photo as a reference for how your rear wheels would sit

      that will work, you could even go with a 20mm adapter up front if you wanted to. this would be exactly what your fronts would look like with a 20mm:


      and your rears with a 20mm would poke 5mm less than this photo:


      so you'll be fine running 15-20mm adapters with those audi wheels. for tires i'd do 205/40/18 if you havent made up your mind on that already (that's the size in those pictures)
