18x9,5 ET40 Golf V
« on: September 03, 2016, 10:25:47 AM »
Hi

Does anybody knows if I can fit 18"x 9,5" wheels with ET40 on my MK5 GTI, with no issues? Would 225/40 18 tires be ok? Car is lowered all way with Bilstein B14 (height is aprox the same as with Eibach sportline springs)

Cheers

will be fine on the back but the stretch on that height will look a little weird, i run lower than that and camber the backs around 3 degrees and never touched once

what wheels? 3sdm?

If that's what your looking after then the bilstein won't go low enough
If you want9.5 on the front your going to need wider wings more stretch and something like adjustable top mounts to camber them in
