      well like i said before it depends on what you call rubbing/low...if you dont do any fender liner trimming, camber more than -2, roll fronts, a decent stretch, you will rub over bumps and stuff like that...plus you don't know what i call low

      What wheel width though? A 7 and a 7.5 will not rub at all ET45.

      how low are you on your coils? are they bottomed out or do you have room to go lower? also, how did you set up your dampening adjustments? ordered some ksports a week ago, just waiting on them to be delivered.
      so it goes... ಠ_ಠ

      Not really sure because I don't know where it was stock. Right now it measures ~24 1/4" to top of arch in the front and ~24 1/2" in the rear.

      i didn't mean anything like that im saying people have different opinions...your car is probably my favorite mk6...mainly b/c i miss my sb rabbit...but i was just making that point, and plus i had other things in mind when i said that...like the car not having anything done to fenders/liners, camber and other stuff like that...and meaning rubbing as any contact at any point like bumps and hard cornering

      You cant hassel the hof so I will answer your question.

      I can go down to the point where the car will not move if wanted... I have the rear set at 15 of 32 and the front up around 20. Im over 40k miles on these and they still ride Great!

      I know what you mean... huge PITA. Check the Coil over thread and see what members are running yours then PM them asking what they keep their threads at.

      That's me!!! OEM VW with 5 nice simple sturdy spokes, 17" x 7.5" ET47, almost flush in front not so much in the back. They are perfect for me!!! I love them!!! In the future I am planning to run a slightly taller 235/45/17 tire and will also likely go slightly lower too. I know it isn't much for you guys, but I really am happy with the modest but noticeable change in the stance with the wider wheels and lower offset. My stock Porto wheels were only 17" x 7" ET54.

      make: VW from B6 passat
      model: Monte Carlo
      size n offset : 17" x 7.5" ET47
      tire size: 225/45/17, but going to 235/45/17 in the future
      coilovers: not yet
      spacers: none

      New wheels from the side


      New wheels from the front

      Nice choice, although not my aesthetic preference...

      But I'd be totally content to run close to stock width and offset. If I had but a few mm of offset reduction right now, I'd be a lot happier. I'm worried about impacts to handling (scrub radius mainly), aerodynamics and even more crud getting kicked onto the paint, to say nothing of rubbing and other minor effects on handling.

      Note, I'm guessing you'll probably rub a tiny bit with the 235/45R17. I am with 17x8 ET45 and same tire.

      Although it sounds like you have a similar set-up to my 17" x 7.5" ET47 wheels, I actually have about 4mm more clearance on the strut side and 8mm more clearance on the fender side. Anything is possible, but I really don't think I will rub, even if I go a little lower with the 235/45/17 tires. I won't be going too low anyway, just a smidge to close the gap and make it ever so slightly more firm. I can't say I am an expert on handling, but I honestly believe my car will probably be slightly improved when I am done. At least that is the goal. I'm certainly not trying to make in handle worse.

      Good luck. In reality, that's your wheel youre talking about. Your contact patch will still only be 2mm further inboard than mine (ET47 vs 45). The rub I'm seeing, against the upper fender liner fastener, just inside the fender, is not likely to be affected by a 2mm offset improvement. Im also getting the impression that it's in fact the increased rubber diameter that's really the problem (about 4mm more rolling radius), e.g. a small spring rate change might help.
