They are 16x7 and 16x8 et49 all the way around. I have drop spindles in the fron that push the wheels out 6mm on each side. I am also running 15mm spacers in the rear. They do not rub at all. I had to take the stock swaybar off because the fronts were rubbing the clamps but other than that its good. Slightly smaller turning radius.

I think so to! I am glad everyone likes them. The next thing to come are full whiteline swaybars.

Swaybars are next. Eventually I am going to go with some Recaro seats. I really like the ones that came in the mk2 gti and gli but am not too keen on the colors. I would also like to put a 2.0 type 4 in. Something with some decent power but also daily drivability. Prob work some 914 heads, carbs, cam so on. Nothing too crazy. Other that that I am very happy with it. What I am trying to build is an old car, that performs more along the lines of a new car, but also has the nostalgia factor. I really like the concept of "OEM plus." taking parts from other cars while keeping the over all flavor the same.
