    Im looking at purchasing some new rims for my TDI, however im not sure they will fit. I have posted the same question on my build thread but figured this would be the better spot to post up my questions regarding wheel fitments. Here are the dimensions:
    • Front Wheel Size: 18-inches
    • Front Wheel Width: 8-inches
    • Front Wheel Offset / ET: 35
    • Front Wheel Center Bore: 67.1
    • Rear Wheel Size: 18-inches
    • Rear Wheel Size: 9-inches
    • Rear Wheel Offset / ET: 35
    • Rear Wheel Center Bore: 73.1
    • Stud Pattern: 5x114.3 PCD
    My question is, is there ANY way i can fit these rims on my car with some sort of modification? And if so, what can i do to make it fit?

    I'm currently running BBS CHR 19's


    They good for weekend street cruise however with my HPA turbo build starting next month I want look to drop back to some 18's for set of track rims but undecided what to go for.

    Suggestions welcomed on preferred rims below.

    I'm thinking maybe Enkei as have BBS CH 18's and CHR 19's, though orange Oz Racing would be offset nice with blue BBK.

    BBS LM Forged


    BBS RE-V Forged


    Enkei RPF1 SBC


    OZ Racing Alleggerita HLT Blue


    OZ Racing Alleggerita HLT Orange

    I like them all but if it was me it would be the RPF1 followed by the RE-V.

    Should check out the weight of the wheels - I'd suspect (but may be wrong) that the LMs would be heavier than some of the other forged wheels you mentioned - all those bolts etc.

    For track work, even a kilo per wheel difference to the unsprung weight would be something you'd notice.
    If you're gonna be a bear - be a Grizzly!

    Sold my R32 but like it here - now driving a VF Commodore Redline; a much better car than you might think (particularly with a nice, relaxed 380Kw).
