OK, I just recieved some A8L (12 spoke) Replicas, and their offset is ET35.
Now I'm debating on which springs to get, H&R Sports or Race... And also what tire size, 215's or 225's
here's a pic of H&R sports installed on 17's... looking at the pic, ET 35 would definitely fill out the wheel wells, and make a flush look.
borrowed pic: the traveler...

and here's a pic of a MKV slammed on Race springs...
borrowed pic: Mchu86... keep in mind he has ET30 on the back w/ 215's


I'm not sure what i should go with! i'm always cruisin around with 3 people, including myself, and i'm already @ 230 lbs (built, not fat, lol)
should i go with Race springs and 215/40's all around or...
Sport springs and 225/40's
Let me know what you think!
Thanks in advance!

I still don't see how he is running ET-30 in the rear. In the picture, you can tell it pokes. Is he running 215/40 or 215/35?

definitely would if i had the money! but...
you see, i had coils on my other car, and only adjusted them once! so i'm not to crazy about them any more...
The springs will provide the drop i want, and i'll be good with that... if anything i can always swap them out for my stock 17's should these wheels become a problem.
Thanks again!

Re: Which H&R Springs and width tires should I Use? (MKII420)

well im hopeing you post what your end results ended up being i just got my set of A8L's in last week. and was literaly about to order the tires untill i read the 215 40 18 idea.
i dont know how these wheels fit on gti's but the mk5 jetta its looking interesting.. the back wheels will tuck perfectly ( keep in mind this was the jackstands under the spring perc's so to show the full weight of the car on the suspension.) but the fronts hang out about 1/4".... there are a fare amount of pot holes out here on italian roads so i dont want to dent a rim by going to low of profile or stretching the tire too much. well i hope i didnt just make that confusing. but i need to know 215 or 225? what would be the best for this situation.
and sport H&R's are on the way

Re: Which H&R Springs and width tires should I Use? (blackout06)

Hah, i'm running the same wheels!
what offset are your wheels? i have 18X8 et35
I see you'll be running H&R Sports, which i think you'll be safe with 225's...
I'll be using Vogtland 50mm springs, cause i want to be slammed, and with the offset of my wheels, i should be sitting nice...
and yes, i don't care about the rubbing!
