    I recently had the wheels on my mk 3 golf balanced and aligned at bridgestone and they told me I should get "centering plates" (or something like that) for the wheels as currently my 4 stud rims just sit flush against the hubs with only the wheel nuts to locate them. Is this necessary? Thanks

    Hello,

    I am looking for new wheels and tires and found a used pair for a great deal; I am wondering if they will fit my 98 golf gl

    The tires are 205/50 on 17 inch wheels.

    I am currently running 195/60 tires on 14 inch wheels.

    Diameters: Old-23.21 in New-25.07in

    Tire width: Old-7.7 in New-8.1 in

    Same bolt pattern. I'm not worried about offset because I'm getting spacers regardless and the new wheels have a more positive offset than mine.

    Whatchy'all think?
