I know, I run those tires, but I think OP has a GTI.
Indeed, I do. I'm going to move forward on the 9 inch wheels and will post my pics of progress. Prob won't be for a few weeks, I know you'll on all be on pins and needles.

I went ahead and bought the 18 x 9 Neuspeed wheels, based on the feedback here. It would seem they were the last 4, so its a good think I bought when I did.

I very much want to buy the Federal FZ-210M, but 265's are backordered. Considering the continuing nonsense with Covid, I would imagine there is no end in sight to this backorder. But, the 255/35/18 is available. I know they're not the sweet spot for this size rim, but what do all you wheel-geniuses think about a 255 on 9 inch rims?

It'll be fine, alternatively you can try Nankang CR-1's, they're just starting to get stocked at distributors right now.
