18x9.75 et 14 ( I know, I know )
what size tires would you run. not on air.
you could also check tyrestretch.com to see if they have any pics of your wheel/tire combo to get an idea of how it'd look.
Running 17x7.5, et45, w/ 225/45x17 front and rear.
Not interested in having any "poke" at all but want the tire edges closer to the fender.
Am really more interested in widening the track enough along with lowering appx 1.5 to 2 inches to improve handling.
What size spacers would you recommend? 10mm in front and maybe 15s in the rear?
Thanks in advance. I need all the help I can get.

hi im new on here and thought id ask about tyre and wheel sizes,
i have a 1998 5 door 1.4s golf currently lowered 120mm on 16inch standard ronal golf wheels with et of 45 and a 205 55 16 tyre i had some issues fitting the front coilovers due to the tyres hitting the coilovers on the front, so quick trip to halfords and got 9.5mm spacers on the front as a temp fix as im looking at wheels i have seen a set of xxr 522 17 x 9 et 42 and wondered what tyre size would fit nice and flush as i want a low tucked in the arch look.
The ones I got are from here
And at a great price with center caps
So "hypothetically" speaking, if I were to run wheels with a +15 et with 33mm adapters up front and 35mm adapters in the rear, that would make them have a final et of -18 and -20 correct?
If that's the case, if I were to run wheels with a +15 et that I needed adapters to run, what would be the best size adapters to run to poke a LITTLE in the front and rear? Running 15mm (the smallest size adapters that are produced) will leave me at +0, is that possible to pull off cleanly with a mkiv?

assuming it's a mk4, you'll want a 20mm spacer up front to clear the suspension and bring the wheel out a bit. don't forget to roll your front fenders too, this may even give you a bit more flare if you think the fronts poke too much. you might be able to get by with a 15mm spacer, but don't quote me on that.
then for the rear, 20mm in the back as well. this will poke a little but it'll go along with how the fronts sit.
