i got a stock 87 gti lowered about 1.5 inches. i was wondering if i get the 15x8 with 0 offset or the 16x8 with 0 offset will they mount on there or will i need to use spacers to put them on. any help would be great. Thanks!
I have an 83 GTI with 15x8 0 offset sportmax 002 with about the same amount of lowering and it works great.Poke in front is minimal(1/2"-3/4") with no fender rubbing .If you go any lower and you want them to tuck you will have to roll front fenders.They clear very well on the suspension side.The rear could use a 10mm spacer but just for looks.You should get aluminum hub-centric rings volkswagen centerbore 57.1 mm ,sportmax centerbore is 73mm.Just google them.I ran a 195/50/15 for michigan roads but if you use a 16" wheel i would go 195/45 or 205/40.MKII should work great with 16x8 0 offset on all 4 corners.I wish i had pics of my black on black GTI.And lastly wrong forum.This is the buy/sell forum.
