Looks good. Are you planning to push out the rear maybe another 7-10mm? It looks fine the way you have it, but thought maybe could use a touch more aggressive offset.

I'm currently running 10mm spacers on the rears on my set up to match the front offset.

Sounds good to me.

I like running spacers on Euro cars as it is just SO EASY to run them by getting the right spacers and matching longer lug bolts. None of that stud replacement type1, type2, etc non-sense on other imports.

Here's a few closer shots of the superspeeds. And yes, 18x8.5 +35 with 245/40 Firestone Firehawk Indy 500 tires.

Any issues with rubbing, needing trimming, or spacers? Im trying to do a 18x8.5 +35 rims with 225/40R18 Firestone Firehawk Indy 500’s on the stock suspension for my GTI, but I don’t like stretching and the rim protruding past the rim. I like the Fitment of your 245/40R18 setup where the tires kinda protect the rims a bit, and would do the same if it’s possible.

Zero issues, but I'm running front camber mounts. The front would rub for sure without them with 245's.
