thats good to know. if i am fixed on using my current 225 tires, what are my advantages of going up to 8.5 vs 8?
I am running another brand's 18x8.5" et43 rim with 255/35 tires. I could get away with a 5mm spacer and clear the filler neck and could run up to a 10mm spacer without poke.
I am currently using an 8mm spacer. Not a single issue.
20 pledges already! Thats awesome!
pledged! excited for these wheels.
Well it's still the MQB, and the GTI and R still come with the same size wheels, so I think it's a safe bet. The 18's will surely clear the Mk8 PP brakes, but I wonder if the 17's might not. Hard to know without knowing the new rotor size.be nice to know the wheels be compatible with the mk8s, another selling pt.
