Think you could have done 235/35 R19? How's the ride quality and steering? Any differences? You're on stock suspension right?
Anyone know if 17-inch Enkei RPF1's will fit over the GTI Performance Package's larger brake rotors? NOTE: I'm looking at 17's not 18's.
Not exactly the same, most part numbers have changed and
rotor dia meter now is 340 mm instead of 345. Probably it's
negligible, but who knows.
I'd say, it depends on the specific 17" wheel. Some will fit
(as the the Brooklyn does), some may not.
Bear in mind, some space is required for balancing weights
and even more, when the wheel bearings get some play.
I ordered the Volk Racing RE30 Clubsport II in 17x8 et45.
The RE30 should be 15lbs according to Mackin Industries, the official importer of Volk wheels.
I only have a 1.8T, so the standard wheel is the 15". I'll add a set of VWR springs and I should be good to go.
Tire size will more than likely be 235/45, although I'm not sure if I'll get the Michelin PSS or Conti DW. I have extensive experience with both and I know the PSS are superior, but the DW are on sale and I think that would definitely be enough for this car.
