Lovely ! - almost got these on my 2018 White GTI 7.5 in the end i went with Nuespeed RSe10's 18 x 8.5 Gloss Black.
Enkei Raijin 18x8 ET45, Michelin PS4S 235/40R18, bone stock.
Edit: To clarify, this is for autoX/track/daily, not concerned about flush, only that it doesn't rub.
I think the actual answer is that some stud kits have that extra length so you can use spacers with your wheels if you wanted to. If yours barely come through the wheel, you wouldn't be able to use a 15mm spacer with the stock wheels for example.
Thanks! They're heavy and annoying to clean, but I like the look.
I just wish Amazon also sold somebody to do the cleaning with the bush. I'd buy him/her even if it wasn't an Amazon Prime product.This is the best wheel brush I've ever used. It may look like those cheap brushes on Amazon, but it's far from it. Wooden handle, really soft brush head, and made in the good ol' USA.
