People have different definitions of what "flush" is. It can depend on the tire and also the wheel style.

The Fifteen52 Tarmacs are 18x8.5 45et with 5mm and 15mm spacers out back. 225/40-18

The Neuspeed RSe102 18x8.5 45et with only 5mm spacers out back. 235/35-19

Both have a pretty "flush" fit.

My fronts rub now with the 19's...where they didn't with the 18's. Need to do the fender screw mod.

The tire width will determine how much you rub with 45et wheels.

What is your suspension set up and how much is the car lowered ?

Measured the fender to ground and its 25 7/8 up front and the rear is 25 3/4. I think If I had to guess...it's probably around a 1.6in lowering just by looking at some other cars with a similar drop.

Hello...Looks great. Mind if I ask what FMIC you are running

Thank you. That is the Majesty brand from ebay. It requires some work to fit on Mk7.5 GTIs. Requires trimming of the inner grill area and modifying the intercooler brackets in order to make it fit. The thing sticks out way too far as is, so you can't put the bumper cover back on. If (unlike me) you get the brackets right, grille trimming will be minimal or maybe none at all.
