    19-inch wheels

    What would be the suitable offset for MK4 Cabby to properly fit a 19x8 wheels?
    I found a really nice Japanese-made wheels (the brand is ESTATUS if anyone's wondering). The spec is 19x8 offset 45.
    What problem I might encounter if I decidedto fit them? I'm aware that I can't avoid rolling the guards..but I can live with that..
    Should I get another offset? The seller told me that I can customize the offset...if you think I might need a different offset, what should it be?

    Cheers guys

    A member of the OMC here in Norway had 8.5x19 and 10x19 on his Coupe and it worked out a treat. But to fit them he needed to cut fit coil overs and do some cutting and arch rolling. 8x19 ET45 should cause u no hassle at all, if anything u may need to roll ur arches a bit but that's all.

    Depends on how low you want to go in all honesty.

    You will need to grind down the rear bumper bracket and roll all arches. IS the PCD the correct size? the ET is perfect really if you could get them ET49 it would be the optimum but at the end of the day it doesnt really matter that much.

    thanks guys
    the PCD is correct
    I don't want to take the risk by fitting wheels wider than 8.5

    all depends on how low you are going????
    at 40mm the rear brackets will need sorting and inside arch edge rolling, its easy did mine myself.

    when u get to 60mm the front arch will catch!!!
    how much it will catch will depend on your tyre width & make, eg totyo tyres are wider than falkens(shite tyres)!!!!

    The Vauxhall 19" 5 spoke wheel is 8 x 19" ET43 if this helps?

    With 215 35 tyres, I see no reason why they should not fit. My dealer tried one on an Astra GSi, OK it had the Signum 235 35 Tyre, but it gave the right idea, they looked huge!!!
