Okay so i have a 2003 vw passat, and i plan on buying a new set of wheels tomorrow and just wanted to know a few things. The wheels i'm purchasing are 5x114.3 17x9 all around with an offset of +25mm. I would be purchasing 20mm adapters all around as well my big question is can it work? will it poke? and how much will it poke? thank you for any insight or advice you can give, pics of similar setups would be grateful as well
To put it into perspective.... this is a 9.5" ET ~32 on my wagon:
You will poke 21mm more than me. Thats .08 inches
And that's just the rear.... on the front, you'll poke more than 26mm more than my 8.5 ET 25's - thats a FULL inch
Either redrill the wheels if you absolutly must have them (if they are redrillable that is), or find new wheels.
Note, even if you were to redrill, on the fronts, you would STILL poke 6mm more than me, and on the rear you would poke 1mm.... so even a redrill poses problems on the front.
