Hey, I have a FK 60/40 kit on my car with SSR 18's and they rub so much even with pulled fenders, I am stuck between going 16's or 17's with the Keskin KT4's, I dont want wheel rub, its aggravating, I drove my MK2 Golf with wheel rub and I dont need it with my MK3, A little is ok but not when I go over every bump, ahhh....

What kind of driving do you do? The big back wheels hurt drivability but if you're looking for more show than go its a good look to have. But if drivability more than rubbing is concerned than I'd get the same width all the way around. On Jetta's with Stock skirting, 16's look best IMHO>

actually, with a 60/40, if you do 17x7.5 you should be golden.
as long as you don't do a full load of people in the ride.

16x7.5 is decently wide. You can't just slap on 16x9's and it look good.
