Wheel Fitment

Is it the same as the sedan? The guide is comprehensive, just want to be sure that I'm not missing anything...

I think we have a little more clearance in the rears but it's minimal. What specs are you looking into?

Probably 18x8 and 18x9, +38 front and rear. Unsure of tire size. It should clear, the back might need a roll, I think.

I'm with sway, I think our fronts are dead on. The rears we prolly have a couple more mm based on the same set of wheels from sedan to SportX and vice-versa. Around 5mm I would say.

I coalesce the vapor of human experience into a viable and logical comprehenshion.

SportX msm.... MK4 6sp single.... thats it...

Check on the tire MFG website, it will tell you the rim width range for each tire size. I don't think it looks good personally to put a too big tire on a wheel, looks "bulgy" to me.

I'm planning on going with 18x9.5 Offset 30 / Varrstoen ES1 with 5mm spacers where needed.

I will let you know if I needed to do any modifications to get them to fit right.t
