if you're running stocks, get 8s in the front and 15s in the back to be perfect.
. and that will put the wheels pretty flush w/ the fender but not rub?

if you care anything about performance and handling do not get spacers

If you're gonna make a statement like this, try backing it up. Otherwise you are just blowing smoke.

ECStuning sells H&R and their own brand. They even show what 5mm and 20mm looks like. I would go with 8/20 mm.

So is what I said a good thing or bad thing? I've always thought wheels spacers helped performance. But if they don't, I'd like someone to point out why instead of just spouting something they may have heard someplace else.
Oh, and I haven's smoked anything yet.....today.

Re: (DJKeebler)

I'm running 15mm H&Rs on the rear. I guess the RCs have different offset than the Monte Carlos and other factory VW wheels, but now all 4 wheels are flush with the fenders. Dont forget to get longer lugs too.
