Thanks for the info Steve. I really want wider rims front and back but the maker only offers a choice of 8.5 and 9.5 wide rims with both offset choices being 35 and 45. That's why I'm considering running the 8.5 for fronts and 9.5 for rears. If I do purchase these rims and go with 255/35R18 for the fronts, what would you recommend for the rears?Steve Jarvis said:Look at the stickies in the MKIV Tech section. There is a wheel fitment guide there. Please put something wider than a 8.5" wheel on the front. At least go with a 9" wide front wheel. I would recommend a 255 on a 9" wheel as the narrowest tire/wheel to run on the front of a MKIV. BTW you could run a 255/35R18 on an 18x8.5" 45mm offset. It is not the best setup however.
