      Quick question regarding a 2013 GLI's running the stock sport suspension. Whats do you guys think would be the largest tire I could get away with without rubbing? Wheels in question would be 18x8.5 et45. Going for the more squared/beefy look rather then stretched. Thanks!

      245/40-18 is a little bigger in diameter than stock, 245/35-18 is a little smaller. Either should work at stock ride height, or with mild lowering, and are a good width match to an 8.5" wheel.
      I found this picture online. This is what the poster stated it's running:
      Enkei RS05RR 18x8.5"et45
      Continental extreme DW 245/35


      A 40-series tire will obviously give a little more (~.3") sidewall.
