    ive got 18s on mine (originally started with 15s) and have no problems with turning or rubbing - plus its lowered 45mm.

    Believe you can fit 19s or even 20s without any problems as long as you have the correct tyre size and offset.

    Stich to as close to ET45 as possible and you can get pretty big on.

    Also stick to 215 wide tyres with 35 profile on 18's and 19's

    18s need a 225/40 and 19s a 215/35 IIRC (on the mk5 anyway)
