On standard arches (not widePSG2)

Tyre size 215/35/18
Max rim width 7.5" and Offset to go for is et45. Any higher (et49)it may touch the suspension strut, and lower (et42) it may touch the arch.

And make sure the rear arches are cut (metal part) and welded together.

Lowest i'll lower it is 40mm on HARD setting.

good luck rewelding the floor pan, moving the charcole filter, moving the filler neck for the petrol tank

no point putting 19s on then having to rip it all to bits to fit 20s, they are a lot bigger then 19s u know, width too

i have 18s, tho on a psg2 wide arch kit

ill tell u my set up anyway, 215/35/18, et 42, FK coilovers lowered about 50mm

u do get some scrubbing over long motorway dips, and i cant take any1 in the back without scrubbing, but thats only because my coilovers are non-dampening adjustable, so their just plainly to soft, on a harder setting they would be much better without as much scrubbing
