Tire stretching not alot just a wee bit :D

Postby DeviantDub » Fri Dec 07, 2007 6:48 pm

HEY EVERYBODY!!!! lol, Yeah so ive been pretty busy over here in Kuwait doin the deployment thing, but as a little gift to myself, and my beloved veedub when i get back im gonna get some new rims, pretty much sold on the TSW Kyalami's :excited: :clap: :cool:

and yeah the ones i want are the 18x8's SO HERES MY QUESTION: Right now I got some 18x7.5 enkei rims so im only jumping up half an inch and im kinda likin that stretched look so i think it should work out so my question is can i rock the tires (225/40-18 Kumho Ecsta ASX) i got on my enkeis on my new TSW's cuz there pretty new tires and id like to keep em if at all possible. So if any of you VW Guru's know about my lil idear here please let me know if itll work like a champ!!! :thumb:
Heres a pic of the rims i got now, i know i dont have any side shots on my psp here at work but u can see em, i think the TSW's look a lil more grown up and classy then the Enkei's i got here :thumb: AND THE RIM PRETTY MUCH MATCHES MY SILVERSTONE GRAY CAR HEHEHE :excited:

205 will have no stretch. 195 ftw look at the what Oz is doing thread and the wheels on the car in that thread are 15x8 with 195 on em. although toyos would sretch alot better than those shitee nexxen

Hey Kev, you still suck for going home in a month :D

I got 8.5s on mine and they are 225, not that it means anything to you, lol

I think for what you are wanting, listen to AJ(zoso) :thumb:

those are nice wheels, I've seen em on a black MK3 in Richmond, though they are 17s.
