Re: Problems with 17in wheels
Haven't had much problems with the 17s at all. With the VWW wheels, the accepted front backspace is a 4.75", and the best tire size is a 235/45/17. Some guys prefer to run the 245 up front, but I prefer to tuck them in to a 4.875" if you are going to do that.
The rears have always been a slam dunk with a 5.5" backspace on a 9.5" wheel, or the guys that like to see more tire bulge, a 9" is also an option. I have only had one guy say this did not work on his car in the past 3 years, and he's uncertain if his rear end truly is 'stock'. I told him it can't be because his wheels stick out by an extra 1".
If your car is stock track width, this set up should work.
