    Thread: Need help with offsets? See and post here a.k.a the fitment thread

    1. 09-15-2012 05:21 PM #101
      How much wiggle room is there on the front? 20mm adapters for an offset of 40 will clear, but im not a huge fan of stretch. I was hoping to run 225/35/19s up front but i think it will still touch the spindle arm. Im not 4mo, but am running koni coil overs.

      Too hard to know. Every tire 'fits' differently. But in general, yes you should probably roll your front to be safe...

      Sorry, not what this thread is for.

      Best bet is to check out the 5x112 classifieds, and the threads here for some examples and then report back with a set you like and we'll go from there.

      Hey guys I just got new wheels 18x7.5 et51 all the way around. I have a b5 1.8t with stock suspension and unrolled fenders. They came with 235/45 on them but I would like them to be flush all the way around and when I lower the car just be able to stretch some 195 on them. Need spacer and lug size recommendations, would love to get it all before h20

      All the info you need is in this thread... please read the first post and then compare your wheels with someones who's specs leave the wheels where you want them. Space accordingly.

      Lower the car first. It will look ridiculous with 20" wheels and stock height. 20's are going to be really hard to pull off at all....

      But, you'll still poke out the rear by 8mm with at ET 30 on the rear. And you might rub on the inside too. Fronts are fine.

      So rolling the fenders would be a good idea? Any suggestions on lowering kits? Thanks

      If you are set on those: stretched tires, rolled fenders, and a stiff rear setup is needed. That means a good fully adjustable (dampening and height) coilover.

      Sorry, one last question, what size of tires do I need if I plan on stretching them onto that setup?

      5 spoke rims from the b6 passat

      They're 17x7.5 with 47ET
      235/45/17
      Lowered 1.5-2inches

      Will they be inside too much?

      They should be fine as is - but you might want a spacer to flush them out - 20-30mm on the front, even more on the rear.

      Did you have to roll your fenders to fit that aggressive of a setup?

      I need help with fitment guys!!! I dont know what to do. I have a 2004 passat sedan lowered on Eibach sport springs. I have 18x8 et44 BBS CK's. I have 5mm and 15mm spacers. I test fit the wheels on with a scrap 235/55 18 with both the 15mm and the 5mm in the front. Both seem to poke out a good bit. Heres where I am lost, With it lowered and these big of wheels, they look like they are gonna scrap the fender bigtime even if I go over a small speedbump or something. I am thinking my wheels are just too big for the car, but then I see guys running 19's on passats. So how the @#$@ do you do it without scraping the tire on the car?!?!

      Thanks!

      235/55 is WAY too much sidewall.... I'd run a 215/35 or similar.... that's the problem....
