Question Will these fit on the GTI?

Hi guys. Just wondering if these tires will fit the GTI? Got them on my Tesla Model 3 and I'd like to upgrade to Micheline A/S 3+ or PS4S.

Michelin Primacy MXM4, 235/45-18, 98W

stock or lowered? Just means your sidewall will be pretty huge.
What size rim are they going on? 7, 7.5, 8, 8.5? That will also matter though only slightly..
also offset? Stock VW's?

Also depends on your driving characteristics. I don't think it's a safety issue however if you're lowered you are really gonna rub crazy

As mentioned above....we need more info: suspension? wheel specs?

That's the same size as OEM Passat tires though.
And 215/55/17, which is another Passat size tire & the same overall diameter, will fit & clear on a stock suspension GTI for example.

The taller tires fill up the wheel well though, and also give a little lift to the GTI (since they're taller)

But it all depends on your suspension & the wheel specs. IF you really want to run them, sure. But ideally, I'd just grab the correct size instead
