Weird, didn't realize they changed the knuckles. Just the R or the GTI too? The GTI still runs the Mk7 PP setup, right?

Dunno anything about the GTI. the R has a completely new caliper and rotor setup.

Can you fit those on a Mk7 GTI with those tires and not get rub on the filler, or do you need to shift it a little? Curious if mine show up before the R if I can run them on this car.

Yes. I run that exact size of tire. No issues

Gracias. What are you running these days? Still trying to narrow it down between the BS RE71RS, the Yoko A052 or the much cheaper RS4.

I run 255/35R18 RS4 on 18x9 Rennform for street/ track

&

255/40R17 RE71R on Apex 17x9 for AutoX

Sorry, got my tires confused. My RS4 are 18 not 17 like i said before.

Right width, that seems like my concern for the GTI. Thank you.
