I have rota tarmac's on my RS and they are 17x7 but not sure of the off set, but they rub. need to take the slugger to the fender. Peace

PS stick with 17's. IMO i think 18's are to bling bling on our cars, and i like low and fast, not big and shinny.

Fenders need to be mildly adjusted.

when you start getting that wide dont you have to worry about clearence with the inside strut too? I bet that 18x8.5 would be sweet with stevers aerosim widebody kit

Lightbulb BREMBO BRAKES!?

Does the brake kit bolt right up or do you have to do some fabrication? Can we use the stock RS Master Cylinder and Anti-Lock system? Sorry, didn't mean to high jack the thread.

Shouldn't this be in the suspension, or wheels forum? Your motor has nothing to do with what wheels will fit your car....

Hey im getting some 17x8 +35 wheels soon, what all did you have to do the fenders? Could I just roll then fenders or will I have to to actually pull them with my fender roller? Oh, and if you have coilovers, do they clear them?
