Et 45 ??????

8 posts in this topic

Alright has anyone had any problems with ET 45 offset on the mk 5 gti

Ive been offerd a set of BBS CHs, 18" - 8" wide. with eagle f1s 225 45 18 tyres

the offset is ET 45 (not OEM ), at some point i might go for coilovers so i dont want anything that will even possibly remotely rub :eek:

Cheers guys, any experiances appreciated.+++

They'll be perfectly OK, I run 8x19 ET51 with 15mm spacers (effectively ET 36) with no rubbing whatsoever :)

That was the rears, which were running 20mm spacers :P And my front left damper failed!

IF you insist on using spacers, make sure they are hubcentric. No spacers anywhere near mine!

With coilovers you can adjust the setup to avoid rubbing. There are also a couple of things you can do to the wheel arches to help.

I'm hanging OZ 18x8 ET48 wheels on VWR-KW-V3 coilovers and I get no rubbing : -
