I'm thinking about ordering 215/55-15 Kumho Ecsta 711's to put on my MKIV Jetta's 15 inches steel wheels... what do you guys think? I know that size should be near stock, but I am concern about the width of the tires vs my wheels... also would I experience any kind of rubbing?
thanks!

Re: 215/55-15 on OEM 15" VW's steel wheels for Jetta IV? (JFVOLKS)

Why not stick with the 205/50-15(Jetta GLX VR6), you will get better handling. A 215/55-15 has a much higher sidewall and will feel quite "mushy" compared to the stock 205/50-15.

MKIV Golf/Jetta are comming stock with 195/65-15 tires... not 205/50-15...
195 is not wide enough... this is why I'm considering 205/60-15, 215/60-15 or 215/55-15...
