At least I don't have any RICER style splashed on my car. I like how it looks so good how the stock body hugs to the ground.
There maybe many with low offsets. But IMO they should be wider as well.
I my self have 15x10" wheels with 25mm offset and 17x9" also 25 offset. But I've got a wide body kit. But a 15x9 stretched would be interesting

Looks awesome man, screw these haters on here. Makes me sick. I didn't read through all 5 pages, but i'm sure you have more planned with your stance setup. Keep up the good work man!

Oh I'm not worried about ground clearance. I have 16s with about 2" of ground clearance. But filling out the fender is up there priority wise. 15s don't look bad, but with a beefier tire to bridge the gap, it would look nice.

Hey at least they aren't 13s like you see on a lot of VWs.

That is how it looks now, snapped them up when I woke up and yay fuel pump didn't die on me :) somehow fuel pump shutoff inertia switch tripped when I scraped on the bridge then around 1 and half mile later it died.



The quarter is .75 inches in diameter ;)

Haha indeed they are, they usually go with 14s and 15s though. I owned mk2 jetta before I had the focus.
Definitely have to worry about 15" ground clearance, my coils are 1 inch away from maxing out. Hard to fill the gap at same time have good enough ground clearance lol.
When I mounted the rims, I knew that I had to run stretched tires without serious work on fenders. I would say it is perfect stretch for the offset, otherwise I would have ran meaty low profile tires. There are no 175 or 185 with 40 or 45 profile.
Btw, I would like to know what roads around houston are really bad.

Generally speaking, once you get into Houston (basically anything inside 610), it would be easier to name the roads that aren't bad. Off the top of my head, I can't think of any. But I live up north in Spring and the majority of those roads are pretty decent.

I definitely am surprised that most of roads are decent :) it is horrible up in new york and pa. Just want to know where that I possibly could get stuck considering I have less than 3/4 inch of clearance.
Have your shutoff pump inertia switch trip from scraping?

People like this are the reason FF has gone so downhill the last couple years.

Just because you don't like something doesn't mean you're a hater. I really don't know how many times I have to say this. Damn kids get butthurt so easily these days.

Think we're being mean? Post this car on Stance|Works and see what mean really looks like.

i feel this would really benefit from some slightly bigger tires to make the wheels gap look smaller. will you keep the wheels black?
