I am going to do touareg rears very soon just missing rotors and lines at the moment. Then its going to stop like an animal.
yeah the 18's bite like crazy if you have the right pads. its enough to sorta lock up the wheels, or chirp the tires while braking. good thing ive got the golf r rears to even it out.

Offset: et45
Spacers: 8mm (Trak+ H&R)

I would say 3 to 4 mm clearance. I hesitated to go with 5mm spacer, but didnt wanted to take any risks. It might fit but would be a very very tight fit.

Hi guys,

I'm interested in getting this particular kit from AP racing:
http://www.apracing.com/product_deta...5570-1015.aspx

Been searching alot, but cant get a definite answer whether this will clear stock 18" (edition 35 wheels 18 x 7.5 ET 51) without a spacer??

Any have experience with these?

Maybe.

1. Print this out
2. Take off wheel/
3. Place inside of wheel.
4. If fits purchase.
5. If it does not fit, measure how many mm is needed. Purchase spacer if distance is small.

It will probably fit but I would measure first. It'd be a shame to spend a lot of money only to find it does not fit.

Download this drawing. This will let you know if the brakes fit with the wheel.

i do not understand where you guys are getting your cheap pricing from for your aero rotors for Stoptech.

At the Zeck website...it states $305 for EACH rotor.

Looks Sharp. Why the switch? What tire are you running and what size.

At the moment no. Not enough demand for them to make them in 5x112. Mine were done for me but what they did was widen the holes slightly so that the centering bolts seat even easier/better. With the hub centric rings they fit perfectly. They can be tracked on with this per the US importer.
