That's exactly what I'm thinking.

dyn085 If they fit over the brakes I would have no reservation whatsoever about throwing my 1.3's on one. I'm personally not a fan of anything larger on the Mk3, but that's just me. It would be nice to have a set to daily drive on and keep the 19's for some more 'demanding' drives.

Yeah I'm wondering if they'll work with the brakes and such.

It would seem a bit sacrilege to do that though...lol

Gi_Jo_Nathan Yeah I hear yah.
I just don't like the thought of dailying on 19" 35 series tires...
I was originally gonna sell my SE and get the RS. Maybe I can just keep the SE and drive the RS on the weekends. lol

The dynamic side profile is emphasized by sculptured rocker panels and bold wheel lips that house a choice of multi-spoke 19-inch RS alloy wheels, including the high-performance, lightweight forged design finished in low-gloss black that offers enhanced strength and impact resistance with a weight savings of 1.3 pounds per wheel.

So yeah, 18" wheels are not even an option for this car, as expected.

Gi_Jo_Nathan Damn it...

suss6052 19" tires are your only choice. The 18" wheel is an error from the ST configuration. Read closer and you'll note the lack of an appropriate 18" tire.
