So who thinks this can fit? :D

I came across some wheels I may want to run. What do you guys think about making this work?

17x8.5 +15 (front)
17x9.0 +32 (rear)

255/40/17 all around.

Very odd setup/idea but I think it could be awesome. Thoughts?????

I should add I have Camber Plates as well as a roll and pull front and rear. I am currently running:

18x8.5 ET35 225/40/18
18x9.5 ET40 245/40/18

With RS3's which run quite wide.

without a widebody, I wouldn't see it happening....just look at your fronts then add 20mm of poke then 15mm more tire shoulder....hitting bumps would tear your fenders up

the rear would be doable with a narrower tire

Don't see it happening either. I'm running 19x8.5 et37 /19x10 et 38. In the front I have 215/35's which don't rub but then in the rear I have 265/30's which do rub. I don't see it being possible to go any lower et wise in the rear really.

The reasonable side of me KNOWS you are right. The ridiculous side of me wants to say F it and try to make it work anyway... I am a functional guy all the way and the main reason I want to go to 17's is to run a square setup and tire costs.

Do you know any practical way of testing fitment? I'm thinking something like putting a ruler against the center caps and attaching something vertical from there to see where it fits in the fender. Pretty bootleg but I can't think of any other way and the wheels/tires are in AZ so I can't test fit.

Yeah, I think it is quite ambitious, but the rears I'm not quite so concerned with. The fronts are the big challenge here me thinks.

take a string with a washer on the end drop it from the top of the fender arch....you can measure the distance to the string to tire to give yourself a relative idea of how much room you have to work with

in the fitment thread there are a few of the hardcore track set ups that run 17's...i would check them out to see what some reasonable square set ups are

Ok awesome man, appreciate the help. Will definitely do the string test. VW guys know their sh*t when it comes to fitment! Did you get into a 1 yet?

I run 245/40/18 Hankook RS3 in the front on an 18x8.5 +35 Apex rim. Does NOT fit in the front OR rear under load... Rubs super bad... Rolling the fenders next season. It is totally fine though just coasting around on the street. That being said, I fit a 245/35/18 Kumho Ecsta XS on the same wheels front and rear with NO RUB at all...

I think you'd still rub on that setup despite having a 17" wheel.

+35 is hard to run, so there's absolutely no way you are going to be able to put +15's on the front.

Sorry.

Agreed. No way you can get that to fit unless you were running a 195 tire or something. haha.

19x8.5 +35, 19x9.5 +33
