    Change of plans.

    Looking at a set of VMR v710
    19in x 8.5 et35

    They are fitted with a 245 40 19 tyre which I know would be way to wide for my humble gti.

    With a 225 would these be suitable??

    If you want the to be legal load rating you'll need 235/35, if you're wanting to not scrub then a 225 would be the best choice.

    Cheers Vader,
    Thanks for response.
    Sorry I meant a 245/35 tyre.

    Wanting the best fit possible for ride quality and least amount of rubbing.

    Test fitted my V710's with the tyres that are fitted.
    A little bit of poke happening on the front, hoping a thinner tyre will help.
    I've ordered some n6000's in a 235 and looking at some coilovers to help tuck the rims in.

    Currently have an '06 MKV FSI with stock wheels (195 / 65 / R15). I have been able to find a set of 18" rims with 225 / 40 / R18 tires and was unable to find any info on whether or not they would fit my car and would not make the speedometer reading incorrect.

    Also, the offset of the new wheels is 51mm - I presume this is standard and won't be a problem?

    If the wheels are +51 offset they'll probably be 18x7.5+51 which is fine to run 225/40 on them. You won't have to do anything and they're the correct load rating for your car.

    Looking to swap 195/65/R15's with either 225/40R17's or 215/35R18's. Will I have any issue with rolling diameter changing?

    Hey guys, have read some fitments guides and from what I've seen the answer is no, but I want to double check. Looking at some 18x8 et33 wheels, want tyres load rated so likely 225/35/18. Car is lowered and guards have been rolled. Am I gonna have much trouble?

    Cheers!

    Correct load rating for an 8" wide tyre is a 235/35 18 depending on what model.

    You'll be fine running 225/35 though. May need the fender screw mod up front.

    Cheers mate. Ended up getting some gtd wheels with et50, playing it safe. Came with 225/40 92 tyres too.
