I have a set of 15x6.5 et33. it's 1983 4 door jetta. I will be droping my car on coilovers more than 60mm and will run a 195/45/15 tire and my wheel wells are going to have the inner lip rolled in for sure, just curious but does anyone know if I would rub in this situation, cause before I start my body work I need to find out so that I can decide if I have to roll out my wheel well.
thanks
Cam

Re: will I Rub??? (flygti98)

I doubt it. My GTI is lowered 1.25 inches and I'm running 15X7 with 195 50's and there is no rubbing. I don't think that a Jettas specs are much different.
Scratch that I just realized how much 60mm is. You may run into problems.

my coilovers allow I think 2.2 to 4.2 inches of lowering and I want to go as low as I can.

My Rabbit is lowered between 2.25 and 2.5" and I have 15" rims with a 40mm offset and 195/45 tires like you. I have never trimmed or rolled my fenders and have never ran into any problems with rubbing.
Your offset of 33 will set your wheels out slightly further than mine but since you are planning to roll your fenders you shouldn't have any problems at all.

My rabbit is droped 60/40 with 205/40/16. I do not rub. I did have to trim the fender lip a little with my air saw.
