Re: Pics needed (sheepVW)

I've got a VR6 H&R cup kit from an A3 GTI under my 92 Jetta with 15" wheels. Make sure you get the 1/4" spacers for the back otherwise you'll sit all sorts of funny.
With the 15's I can barely stick my finger between the tire and fender and that's at a slight up hill angle. In other words there is no gap unless your looking from the ground up.
It rides real nice though.

Re: Pics needed (quadmodrophenia)

that is about a 60/40mm drop i believe, might be hard fitting 16 x 9 without cutting out the fenders and covering with the flairs. I got 60/40mm with 15s 195/50/15 and had to roll the fender a tiny bit (no fender flairs) and when i turn all the way you cant put anything more than a piece of paper between the fender and the tire.
