      I think i have almost everything figured out . almost

      Last question

      if the rim is 8" wide what tires are better 235 or 245?
      would 9" rim fit the cc with no issues? ( stock height) and if yes, is 245 tire enough for 9"?

      im not into too stretched look,

      im not into too stretched look,
      235 will work fine on 8" as that's what comes standard on the CC 17x8 rims. 245 should be just fine on a 9" as I used to run that on a 17x9 on another car I used to have. The part about whether it will fit on a CC though I have no idea.

      9 inch runs will fit depending what ET u run. I'm running 9inch with a 41ET and I'm about flush with the fender. My tires are 245 very slightly stretched. If ur doin and 8inch 235 will be fine.

      Thanks

      I was debating between Eagle GT or General Gmax AS03

      looks like Generals have little better reviews.

      i was looking at rims from Powerwheelspro.com
      and from http://www.pyspeed.com/category-s/780.htm

      so many good looking rims , it is so hard to pick one

      [QUOTE=peterek;77151410]I'm back! Still can't decide what rims i want!
      and there is new one I like


      http://www.powerwheelspro.com/shop/p...roducts_id=588

      Wheel Size: 18x8
      Bolt Pattern (PCD): 5X112
      Wheel Offset: +35mm
      CB: 57.1

      or:


      Wheel Size: 18x8
      Bolt Pattern (PCD): 5X112
      Wheel Offset: +35mm
      CB: 57.1

      So what do I need to fit them on my CC?? adapters? Spacers? im not going for any poke look , just dont want them to go deeper inside fender than stock rims

      8inch rim - would 235/35/19 be good tire for it? i don't like stretched look and im on stock height but with Gold Coast kit[/QUOTE



      the top one lookd awesome id pick between that and audi a7 reps

      man It looks sweet. I rather go from 17 to 19 than from 17 to 18 , dont want to spend money for 1 inch difference


      And im sure 19 inch rims even on stock suspension would look great with gold coast body kit ( it makes the car look lower)
      Those came with hubs correct? Did you have any issues with that?

      Where'd you order them from? Same wheels I'm looking at and that sounds like a better price mounted, balanced and shipped than most I've seen.

      Curious if you know what the actual rim width is from those guys? They list it as 19x8, 19x8.5, and 19x9 depending on where you look on that page.

      I've decided on these too but can't decide if I should get the Hartmann which is 8.5 or go with the replica on eBay which is 8. Hartmann hcc 305 is 243 on sale normally 285 a wheel and the ones on eBay are only 175. Does the .5 of an inch really make that big of a difference other than weight. My other concern is build quality. Id like to assume the Hartmann is a better product?
