Wheel Sizes? Aftermarket
Hey everyone i just wanted to know what size wheels and offsets that everybody run on their cars. I just got my wheels today and it is 20x9.5 with a 38 offset. And it looks like it sticks out. Any suggestions and feed back would be good. Also might sell the new wheels i just got. Miro 110 black.

yeah those are going to stick out a lot. Might not even clear the strut on the inside being that wide.

What are you going for? A functional non stance setup is usually 18X8 et 45 or so. When you start getting into the 9" and anything more aggressive than +40 you're looking at having to modify fenders and stuff to make them not rub.

Hey yeah i just want a nice stance where its kinda flush. I wasn't going for a wide body look lol. Just curious what people do with their set up. Thanks for the reply.

Not running 20" wheels is a start

where did you get the wheels from? Did they have a mock up online that you could see or did you test fit before you purchased? Something made you go for the 20's....what was it?

Everyone has their own taste's based on what they'll be using the car primarily for. I think R's come with 18's stock and some will try a +1 one fitting or move to 19's. Never seen an R with 20's without using spacers/fender bending....

could you post a pic?

Are those the VWR wheels? They look like it.

I think APR ran VWR wheels on the red R they had. I know they were 18x8, but I do not remember the offset.

Bozz, they are actually factory VW Motorsport wheels. ECS tuning use to carry these , but not any more. They were popular with the TDi cup series

Honestly, I just got 18x8 wheels with ET45 and they are pretty flush. I believe an 18x8.5 ET45 would be best or ET35
