      The stock 15" size on Corrolla steel rims (black) works fine when your oem is the 17". I did that, with Michelin X-Ice, used regular open ended galvanized nuts, no tpms. You could Corrolla wheel cover on I guess; I just left them plain.

      I have found that 18"s is the sweet spot, IMHO.

      You should probably try to find a wheel with _at least_ an offset of 40.

      I had 19s on my b5 S4 and the b6 passat seems to be a bigger car and i have seen b6's rockin 18's, and 19's and they just look small. So is there anyone that is rockin 20's. As far as rubbing goes who dosent have that problem in the rear.

      The passat is roughly the same size as a B5 S4 (i have a buddy with one) 20s will be way too big. But whatever floats ur boat

      If you want to run 20s witu zero issues you would run a 20x8.5 235/30r20 tire with a 40-45 offset and rubbing will be minimal.

      Any wider of a tire with low you'll rub, any more offset with low youll rub unless you go with a 225 width tire
