Car: GTI
Rims: 17 Montecarlo (225/45-17)
My questions are:
1. Can I use 245/40-17 at the back and 235/40-17 at the front with the same rims?
2.Which wheel spacer should I use?
3. Related to 2. question; what size?
4. I dont really lower my car because I'm carrying my gokart on it so I need some space inside the fenders, therefore which lowering springs you recommend? (Eibach pro kit??)
5. Will wheel spacers chance my cars characteristic behaviour? Bad or good?
Thanks.

Re: wheel spacer & tire question (MagicMarcus)

The narrowest recommended rim width for 235/40 & 245/40 is 8"; Monte Carlos are 7" wide. You'll need wider wheels if you want wider tires.

Re: wheel spacer & tire question (MagicMarcus)

If your overall diameter is different from front to back, you'll trigger the ASR/ESP. I'd recommend the exact same size front and back.
