How it sits as of today.

The small tire makes me cry. It also doesn't hook AT ALL :(

I think its the wrong forum for this sort of mod (d'ya? d'ya? dya dya dya dya think Champ?) but uhmm.... the wheels aren't horrendous.... are not horrendous... the look is "almost", and I sort of get what the OP is trying to do with the rear wheel size. Trying to generate a slight stretch or pull while keeping the foot print the same.

These wheels will be heavy, the difference in the stretch front to rear will affect how the car handles, and unfortunately with this wheel and tire biz quite a bit has to be right to pull it off - right rim, ride height, camber, tire all have to be right and then it clicks.

Unfortunately if one thing is off it won't click, this seems like several things are off. I'm not sure if it's how the car is sitting across that gutter but the rear looks high, and in general to pull this off and make it click IMHO this car will need... drum roll please.... moar low. My God am I saying that in a m.turbo thread?????

If they made RS3's in a 205, I would have done the 8/9 combo.

But they don't.

I only have the +20 15x8s and even so I had to raise the suspension a bit. I just did not think they would have fit without some fender rolling... I kept the 195/50s until I can swing getting some larger tires. I would like to go to the 225/45-15s because they might look better on those wheels... Of course, I will try lowering it a little at the time after rolling the fenders to see how it looks.

"you will never get this, you will never get this!"

it will haunt me forever.
