I'm not sure why i'm debating this idea in my head..must be the warmer weather and I'm just trying to occupy my time on the car
but what do you think is a better approach...
Lifting the Tiguan:
1. with JJJ Spaceers he developed
2. H&R lift springs witch has not the greates reviews
3. H&R lower springs
4. B&G lower springs
driving habits in NYC is a lot of city driving and the occasional off to the snowy mountains.
but between that time is the long streath of the jersey turnpike.
just want to experience something different with the tiggy
no coilover options for me, I usallly fail at making changes once i feel comfortable with a height.
give me your thoughts on this.

just called tirerack and they said that
255/70/16 is too big and they recommended that largest should be up to 235/60/16
I don't see the point in that, not aggressive enough.
anyone know the largest I can fit without issues?
I used the tire calc but that wont tell me if rubbing will occure.
thanks for any input.

at one time i wanted to left mine and i looked and these was the aggressive tires i could fine in the stock size 16''
I know I'm gonna get slammed for this, but WHY?
Why spend a pile of dough and void some suspension and maybe other warranty to marginally change the look of the car and put up with other potential issues, like tires rubbing.
Having said that, dropped Tigs look pretty cool.
Without the do'ers and testers....how else will anyone know, maybe i can afford to try and if fail then try again. As simple as that.
Drops do look good...then i wonder why i got rid of my gti.....maybe my consideration of a drop is because i miss the low gti compared to the tig.
But the tig was purchased with a reason, avoid damaging 18" on city street and the harsh ride of stiff suspension. Am i the only few that enjoy going over speed bumps at full speed with the tig?
Lift you ask? Think of it as an urban offroad, paintball,snowboard,fishing,....these are just a few that brings me to locations where a lift would do justice.
How i miss my wrangler.
Now do you get my debate between lift or drop...
