Rattle can black
I have regular GTI carriers and rotors up front and I had to use a 15mm spacer out back (only one I had) to clear the brake dust shield in the back. It rubbed just a bit. Now all seems to be fine after I went for a drive.
Thanks to Uncle Jesse for helping with the paint



Sanding...

Done...

Also went to a nicely named local restaurant for a quick shoot earlier today....

How did you fit those wheels on your 20th?

Stock GTI carriers and rotors up front and they rubbed a bit on the brake shield in the back, or whatever that is called, so I put the 15mm spacers I had back there.
And before anyone asks/flames...I run a drag slick up front so I need the small brakes.

Yeah, it's funny because i was about to ask. I was going to the track and was gonna get those wheels up front and slapp some drag radials but i heard it's a mission to do it because of the brakes. So i just went on street tires.
