I had 235/40 AS3+ on my 8” aftermarkets on my last GTI, the lip was awesome, meaty appearance + good protection. I wish I had 245/40’s on my current RSE10 setup which is 18x8.5 (I have same width 235’s on the .5” wider barrel compared to previous car).

Gave the front sway bar end links a few ugga duggas as I was getting some clunking from up front. Also did a general once over of the front suspension. First track day of the season next Saturday!

Ehhh, Ps4s are about a half inch wider than the Pirellis they replaced, so I’m ok with it.
I’ve personally ran ps4s 235s on a 8.5 and replaced with a 225 ps4s on the sand wheel in efforts to gains some clearance when aired down...

Results: gained next to no extra clearance, lol. The size difference is so minimal when you really think how small 5 mm per side is lol

Brought it home a friend. She said make it fast. Going to throw the JB4 on it. Already replaced the side markers with some smoked ones. Not a fan of tire shine slathered on sheesh 🙄

Don't exceed 2 ugga duggas, per the manufacturer specs.

Used it to run errands all day. Bunch of short trips all within 15 minutes of home. Not great for the TDI so usually take the EV. But figured I should do what I can to set readiness after my failed smog test 🤦🏿‍♂️.

I reset the CEL when I got home from the fail. Since then everything is ready except fuel system. No current, permanent or pending DTC's so I think I should be good even if the tester does a sub 3 engine restart again. But I am going to see if he has an issue with me turning it off and back on. In the transition from key off to on the group online always comes on for about half a second. Then I go to start. I've never gone key off to start in one movement, in any of my cars, not just the diesel. The car is smart enough to not crank if it needs the glow plugs but I still don't like it.

Anybody got a clue on what's required to set fuel system readiness? From what I've found on Google 2007+ diesels can have no more than 2 monitors in a not ready state so I should be good, but I'm still curious.

My last check engine light was about a month ago, right after I got the car back together after having it torn apart for 5 months. I had just flashed and immediately found an on-ramp to give it the beans. Got the light for Mass or Volume (Airflow too high) or something like that but confirmed with the tuner that it can happen as the ECU adapts. It cleared itself within a day and never came back. I had been driving the car for almost 3 hours that morning with several stops. But it's possible I had the pending DTC and it was (im)perfect timing that it popped up at the smog test.
