    Question 19's on a GSI??

    i dunno if this has been done b4 (hope it has), but i was just wondering if u can actually get the VXR 19's to fit on a mk4 GSI without any arch work? and also will i be able to lower it afterwards?

    im asking cuz i might have a set of VXR 19's on the way for mine but just wanted to check b4 i buy them

    Many thanks, Dan

    Will look good but may effect the handling and the ride will be quite hard

    Yes they will fit straight on but you will need 215/35/19 tyres, yes you can lower it but you will need subtle arch work mods front & back.

    I had 19" VXR's on my Coupe lowered 60mm all round, looked spot on & handled like a dream!
