Hey i have a friend who stumbled upon these awesome black wheels with the red stripe around them. I wanted to check and make sure they wouldn't rub and all would be well before I bought them off him.

I have a 2000 GTI 1.8T

They are 18 in wheels with 225/40R18 Tires on them

if you need any more info to help me figure this out I can hopefully supply it. Thanks guys.

That is the right size tires. Unfortunatly that is the only info you left us. What is the offset? How wide are they? What kind of suspension are you rockin? How low are you? All these things we will need to know to answer your question.

That's the only prob he doesn't know. I am going to try and see if I can find out. How can I determine offset? Width is easy just measure with a ruler.

This is a picture of one of the wheels I don't know how much it will help. But He is giving me these for free if they fit so it is better than the stock crap on there now.

Exactly, I have always liked the black wheels with the red stripe though. These just need some cleaning. They have been sitting in his parts warehouse (he runs a dealership in so cal)

any stock wheel.. from vw.. such as aristos (on the 20th ae gti and r32)
is 18x8 with 35mm offset

they will fit right up // are they 5x100?

& ive seen alot worse. id rock em for that price :K:

if they are 5x100 / 35mm offset / 18x8 / with those tires.. your good.
