Stance for the MK3

First to any mods, I know this seems like suspension/wheel talk, but I really want other mk3 people to see and respond to this, since they actually have the car, not so much the mk1 crowd...

so I asked once already in the stance section on focaljet, but now that my ksports for my mk3 came in, i'll ask again here (since no one there knew); has anyone messed around with fitment on the mk3?

st wheels are et55 with a 235 tire so the wheel is only 7.7 mm or so further out board, and the tires are 10mm wider each direction but accounting for offset are only about 5 mm outboard of a stock se with sport wheels but are still inside the fender and completely tuckable...

SOOOOOO now my question is, anyone who has gotten to know this car well (like Chaos09), do you think 9.5 at et45 with a 215 would work? That would be about 36.75mm (about 1.45 inches) out board and about 26.75mm (1.05 inches) in board, right? Seems to me there is enough room each direction for that, judging by the current wheels, the wheel face looks like it would be around 1/8-1/4 and inch out of the fender but with a 215 tread surface would still be well inside the fender (don't how I would be able to measure wheel face location for sure though), and I think there would be just enough room for that extra width on the backside of the wheel to the shocks/struts...

am I crazy? anyone know? jon holso or whatever his name was was rolling with 19x9's with 215's at a final et of like 34 and 30 front/rear, but he had to ruin his fenders though, so idk. Any thoughts or knowledge would be appreciated...
