      I am thinking of getting the 15mm adapters up front and 20mm in the back. My main concern is lug nut length/size. I will be ordering from 42 draft designs if that helps at all. Please help!!

      I am ordering ulttimos this week and just want to be flush, nothing crazy.
      those adapter sizes will work, you'll clear your coils. could even run a 20mm up front if you wanted to in order to bring the wheels out just a hair more. but either size will look nice, it'll sit quite flush with the fender. i'd definitely go down to a 225/40/18 if you can, that'll give you a nice straight sidewall.

      35 series on 18's is a bit unnatural. the general rule of thumb around here is 45 series on 17", 40 series on 18", and 35 series on 19". of course there are exceptions to every rule. in all honesty if the tires are already mounted on the wheels, just put the wheels on the car and see what you think. but if theyre still unmounted and you can manage to return or sell them to go with the 40 series i think you'd be happier

      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.

      Could use some advise.

      18x8 et48

      Was thinking 20mm front & 25mm rear. I want to be close to flush without having to roll my fenders.

      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.

      i'd do more like 15mm front and 20mm rear. you'll tuck just a little bit, very similar to THIS car (sorry pics are kinda dark but hopefully you get the idea)

      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.

      many thanks

      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?

      i'm not sure what width wheel you're dealing with, but regardless those offsets are way too low. pretty much only a 7.5et0 would kind of fit, but i wouldnt recommend it. try to find them or a similar style wheel in 5x100 or with higher offsets

      you can pretty much match the specs on Billburt's car if you want. i'm not sure if you'll be adding camber in the back, but 5mm spacer up front and 10mm spacer in the rear will look good. also make sure to roll your fenders if you havent already

      here is what his car looks like for reference: http://forums.vwvortex.com/showthrea...1#post77234672

      1998? is that technically a mk3 then or is yours a mk4?

      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.

      Europe started getting MK4s in 1997 (MY98). I had a '98 MK4 too.
