Neuspeed RSE10 Tire Setup Questions

Hey guys.

Just got me a pair of Neuspeed RSE10's in a 18x8.5 ET45 size for my MK7 GTI. I'm currently lowered on Bilstein PSS B14 coilovers and was wondering what fitment options do I have in terms of tire size. It seems like people are running a bunch of different tire sizes and I can't seem to nail which tire set up is best. I'm eyeing 245/40/18 or 255/40/18 but don't know if thats too big of a tire for the car. Rubbing isn't an issue as I can adjust height and the fender screw mod has already been done.

Any suggestions would be great, I'm kind of new to aftermarket wheel stuff and I don't know exactly what I want.

If you decide to step up to 255, I'd go with a 35 sidewall as the diameter would be an exact match to the stock 225/40. If you do want a little extra sidewall, then 245/40 would be the better choice. I'd guess 245/40 and 255/35 would have similar fender clearance based the difference between width and diameter. 235/40 is also a solid choice but I can understand if you want a wider tire, just depends on your preference.

245/40r18 Dunlop direzza z3 tires, on the the same spec RSE12 wheels. I’m sitting on Racingline Track Sport coilovers. No rubbing and I have some room to lower a bit.

Nice man I'm glad you're you're enjoying them. It's kinda hard to justify the price unless I'm seeing some significant track data. I was more worried that with them being a true rear coilover, it would minimize the wheel clearance for those running really wide tires
