you can run them but they will require more aggressive camber, stretched tires and rolled fenders

Thank you! Are they for sure able to used on a GTI and where can one buy them from? I looked on ECS's website, but there was no mention of drop and no pics of them on the car either.

Does anyone know if 235 with 18x8.5 ET45 will work with only a mild .75 drop? It seems right on the edge. So 235 is fine on stock but not fine on over a 1 inch drop. How much of a difference is a quarter inch as far as suspension travel related to rub?
