I need to restore them and get new tires. And this set of stockers have snow tires so with it still being winter I am going to keep these on until my winter quarter is over at school. Sorry for that I meant emulate my bad.

I was just looking at the rear end just a little while ago and if I keep the camber the way it is I will have no problem clearing really anything once I roll the fender lips I have about 10mm between the tire and the lip at the moment and the lips everyone knows are fairly large. I may just use the 245/45/17 dunlop direzza summer tires I already have on my other set of stockers. My front end I am not quite sure what will clear yet.

It looks like it will look good with some work. Coilovers will probably help them fill those wheel wells a little better.

Yeah hopefully. I have been talking a little bit with with the owner of this car on my build log on stance nation... OMG stancenation......



Here's a front view of his car.



My car should poke 30mm less in the rear and 10-15mm less in the front which will probably be alot more function especially with having 17" wheels instead of 18" wheels.

Nope not hating at all. I love the car and style personally but 99.99% of this board does not share that love.

In on one.

And I do not post pics of flush GTO's on that page anymore because my pee pee got smacked by the nazi's.

Wow its been a hella long time without an update.

So the wheels are 99% done. I am replacing a few nuts and bolts that were too damaged to want to re-use.

But here are some pics of the test fit without tires and coilover lowered all the way.











1 with my brother's 18" enkei EKM3's on. I can clear about 10-15 mm lower with these wheels on.



A little before an after pic don't mind the bbs center caps:





final product without center cap:

Fak yeah breh. Cannot wait to see them with tires. I still think you need more poke but will reserve final judgement till you get tires on them.

What size tires btw?

thanks neither can I. The rear does need more poke to be flush. but until I can afford to have the rears widened I'm going to keep it this way so I can still have a respectable tire width. I am thinking probably 245/40/17 rears and 215/40/17 or 205/40/17 fronts I cant really decide.

What width are your wheels? Just get spacers.

Nice job on the wheel resto. Have you thought about chroming the centers? I'm not much on Chrome but these wheels and silver body might pull it off.

Funny that you say that. Today at the Water by The Bridge car show (a mostly euro show) and I saw a black mk4 Jetta with 100% polished BBS RS wheels and air ride. It got me thinking about it. The silver is a similar color to stock qsm so I'm going to atleast keep them silver for a little while. I also saw some unique colors and was also thinking about trying to color match the wheels to the red interior but who knows

Last night I was too tired to write up a full update post so I'll do it now. I test fit the wheels on wood blocks and lowered the car a little yesterday.

Here are some pics:













only a little low:

Um yeah...those rears need to come out. If you are gonna go for this look then follow through with it. Get some ARP studs and spacers and get it done.

Then the crank spun hard and threw the pistons up to hard to cause a misfire

After seeing tons of slammed euro's today with destroyed paint I want to less lol. And with possibly going to air in mind I think I can tuck a lot harder with the current dimensions... I'll figure it out.

Would be unavoidable if you want to keep those wheel sizes and don't want to do major mods to the suspension and body.

I can get it a little lower than this I think but we'll see. I honestly am really leaning towards bagging the car if I keep going the stance/slammed route. Hopefully this will wear off as times grows further from this last show I went to where like half the cars were on air and half were static...

My biggest issue is my driveway and well it's a pretty big issue but I'm slowly getting over it.
