15x8 Help/ advice please

Postby Chris M GT » Fri Jan 19, 2018 6:53 pm

Hi,

I've been looking at putting 15x8 et25 on the rear of my Mk2 with 195/45 tyres, can someone confirm these will fit without arch mods and without scrubbing most importantly!!! I was going to go 7x15 et25 but it won't give the look i'm after.

Any help much appreciated.

Thanks

I have 15" 7j et25 on the rear with 195/45/15 on and i've just ordered a 10mm spacer as they're just a bit too tucked in. So I think you'll be fine on the arch and should have enough space to the spring.

If you're local to Surrey, I've got 15x8 ET0 with 195/45 that you could try. If that fits then ET25 will be no problem
