Hi, I’m just wonder has anyone got 18inch alloys with an et42 offset and have their car lowered does the wheels catch the arch gap even if you don’t have a lowered leon how does it drive on that offset etc etc? Any advice at all would be appreciated!

Rim of width also important

im running 18x8J at ET45 on my Audi with sport suspension would be similar setup to an FR.

the front looks fine but the rear looks closer to the arch than the front. If going super low you may rub on the rear but at FR stock height will be okay.

Yeah I’m thinking either 18x8j et42 or else 19x8.5 et42/35, car won’t be slammed just enough so that the arch gap won’t be huge
