Hello all, I'm pretty new and I'm sure it's been listed somewhere but there is tons of pages and I was hoping to get some input and advice without scrolling. I have a VW Tiguan 2017 S 4motion. Current setup is the oem 16 x 6.5" ET33 wheels with 265/65/16. I am trying to go up to 235/55/17 either some Fifteen52 Traverse Mx wheels 17 x 8" ET 34 or some TSW etc wheels. Looking for a wheel width/offset range that'll work without spacers.. this is my ride. Thanks

The factory 17" wheels are 17x7 et43 with 235/55r17.

But...the 2017 Sport trim has 18x8 et 35 with 235/50r18

I appreciate the response. My biggest concern is ordering a set of wheels and they don't fit. I am looking at a set of BBS wheels.

One set of BBS SX wheels specs that are 17x7.5 et35 compared to the 17x7 et43 with a 235/55/r17 factory size you stated

or

Another set of BBS wheel specs that are BBS XR 18x8 et28 compared to that sport trim model 18x8 et35 with the 235/50/r18

Maybe you could enlighten me on whether or not either of those wheels would seem to be a fit or may not. I'm trying to understand the wheel/offset ratios better so I know what will work..
