    Highest and lowest ET you fit to a G?

    Ok people, what's the highest and lowest offset you have put on your MK4 G?

    Just wondering if you noticed much difference?

    Reason I asked, I have some 17 ET35 Zaffy wheels, will they sit on a G with no problems?

    I heard that the ET/offset must be at 40 minimum

    Depends on other things too

    What size tyre, width of the wheel, how much the car is lowered etc.

    I've got ET 37 7x17"s with 215/40/17 Toyo TR-1s on my 5 door G (lowered 30mm all round) and I've had no problems with them.

    I think they fill the arches out nicely, though I wouldn't want them to come out much further as it'd start to look a bit odd at the front. 35 isn't that far off from mine though
