hey i want to lower my car and i am ready to lower it now i just need to get tires for my 19 inch wheels that i have and want to use to lower my car onto and i got 2 tires that are good on those wheels and 2 i would have to buy so idk if i should buy all 4 new tires or just replace 2 of them
i really want to lower my car and give it a nice stance or give it a good looking flush look whats the best tire to be able to do that with ?
or would i need smaller wheel size to make it look a nice flush look ?
and a tire shop was telling me that if i get stretched tires its really bad if i take a corner too hard my tire could pop and i could have alot of problems and my wheels still start shaking alot and messing everything up on my car is this true ?
right now i the tire size i got on my rims is 235/35/19
what size should i get if i want to lower my car on those wheels ?
and have it looking nice
No - we need someone to mount the same set of wheels on a B5 and then B5.5 and report back... then we can use that info in our calculations.... Too bad i sold my 19's or I would...
OR - if we can get a picture of the same wheels on a B5 vw B5.5 it would be at least a good start....
with the tires i got right now the 235/35/19 would i still be able to go low with those or id have to get stretched tires to be able to go low and also do i need to worry about the front being able to clear only or the front and back ?
and how low would i be able to go on 19s ?
hey seeing if you could help ..i just had 17'' oem vw bistar wheels on my 2005 passat wagon 4motion with a 37mm offset and just put on 17'' oem classix vw wheels with a 54mm offset they seem to be fine with no rubbing but they just dont look right.. should i get spacers ??? thanks
If the ET is actually 54... a 40mm spacer wouldn't even put them past the front wheels on my wagon in the first post.... I guess if you really really wanted too - a 20-25mm spacer with the correct hardware would be fine. Keep in mind, while not 'dangerous' spacers that big do bring in more hardware to the system and introduce more failure points, and potential shake or wobble. So if you do it - get spacers that are both wheel and hub centric, or at least, hubcentric with the ability to accept a hub ring, and longer OEM bolts (assuming you are still using OEM wheels).
That sounds about right. VW upped the ET on the Mk5 and 6 vehicles. Which actually is great for people who want to adapt them onto other cars, but for us they cause rubbing issues....
