Could I just cover the wheel gap and be ok, or would I have to go lower, not looking to be slammed just a clean drop.

Yeah, it's just that there's a larger gap to fill, so you'll be at like 24 ftg ish.

Looking to buy a set of V710's, 8.5" and et 45. Was thinking of running a 235r40 tire. Will I be poking at all or have issues with rubbing? I'm sitting about 24.5" ftg front and 25" rear. Thanks!

You'll be just about flush. 235 MIGHT be too big at that height. Probably would recommend a 225.

Thanks for the feedback.. I'll have to look at some pics on tyrestretch to see how 225's would look on 8.5". Not a huge fan of the stretch look. Would it be a bad idea to run 235r35?

225 is not a stretch at all. It's the tire that both VW and VMR reccomend. Not sure on the 235/35. Check the tire fitment chart in the OP.

I know 225 is the OEM size for our tires, but aren't Detroits only 7.5".. I figured the extra inch on the VMR's would make that size stretch a bit..
