    you need to invest in some european roads, no bums, anywhere, ever
    to be honest i would love my wheels to sit like that too, adjustable coilovers or something i imagine.

    you have to get the correct offset and wheel width size for that to work properly, i would like to say go for 18's but 17's are probably a much safer bet. by all means go for it tho, it definately is possible, and i would set them up on airbags, and at the worst coilovers, nothing less. lots of golfs can be seen with these style of wheels, try finding pics of them on the internet, or forums etc, especially the mk 2.

    The 'tread' has to be under the arch but the tyre wall's can poke out as much as they like (Or untill they pop off the rim's)
