    you're much better off getting 215/35/18 rubber on the mk4
    225/40/18 is best reserved for the mk5

    what width are the wheels youve been looking at? Presume they are 8" - if so then the offset will need to be 42-49mm for it to fit on the mk4 without rubbing...lowering would also be a concern if more than 30-40mm or so...

    Better off goin with 7.5" wide rims with 215/35/18 and offset of between 38 & 49mm then u wont get any rubbing even dropped as low as 60mm.

    Upto you of course..... Sorry i aint got any pics

    Yeah front ones stick out. I havent resolved it yet. Everyone just recommended to cut them slightly instead of getting spacers / or raised centre caps. I have pictures when i first got the wheels. They were scuffed and in hyper silver or something.

    They arent the light silver but the darker silver. This is before i refurbed them:



    Picture really doesnt do it justice. Ill get some tomorow which the anthracite colour.

    What colour you looking to get?
