I'm buying rims this week and can't make up my mind. I originally wanted 18s but I saw a picture of an MKIV sitting on 19s and it was gorgeous. How do 19s fit on a Jetta? Do they rub if you don't roll the fenders? I have stock suspension right now. I planned on lowering after I got rims that way I could see how far I needed to lower.
Please give me your opinions and experiences.
Thanks!

2" drop and 19s?! Geezus. Thanks for the replies. Now to find some moderately priced 19s...
btw what size tires do you run? 235/35?

who cares about rub... what you need to be concerned about is how much it will throw off your speedometer
Get the tires that match the closest to the diameter of the stock tires on your car, google search for a tire size calculator and go from there! http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
