Ihave 235-35-19 Conticontact 5P on RSe14 wheels an d did not have to touch anything to make it work. Not a single scratch on the tires... But I did not go for lower coilovers... yet !
I do not think it will make much of a difference as long as I don't slam it.
Diggin this out of the waaay backyard.
Havent updated much as I havent done any more mods. Took it to some shows though. I have plans for something in the works that nobody with a Golf R has done yet in the US. Will post up when I begin the mock up.
Lots more pics in my flickr.
The parts have started rolling in.
Got some "cheapo" pads to mock things up until I decide what pads I really want to run.
It REALLY hurt paying $70 for these bolts/washers/nuts but time is money and I didnt have to source anything, just click the button and it shows up at my door.
Should I keep one of these colors or do something new?
People keep saying red which would go with the red taillights on the car and is classy/classic OEM+ Porsche style. But I've been thinking about doing a little throwback to the days of old and doing R32 blue? Is that not cool because its not an R32? I feel like R32 blue will be pretty bada** looking but still understated, classy and VW OEM+ style.
If I did upgraded calipers I'd do yellow because it'd look badass with the Rising Blue. For your color I would do red or blue, yeah. Blue would be fine.
More brake updates. Stoptech stainless lines showed up today. They are MKIV R32 front lines. They bolt directly to the Brembo calipers with no other hardware necessary. Tonight or tomorrow I should be able to get one of these calipers mocked up so I can check for rotor fitment, wheel clearance etc. I'm getting super excited now!
MKV and MKVI ends are a hoop and require a banjo bolt setup to go into the caliper. MKIV R32 cable ends are a 45 degree elbow with a threaded floating nut as seen below. I prefer this style, less parts is better.
Proof the lines bolt right up to the caliper.
