Hey do you guys think that 235/40/18s would fit on the b5 with bilsteins and H&r race

yes. I had 235/40/18 Dunlop sportmaxx. 25in feder to ground up front, and 25.5 rear. No rubbing, even wear.

you know how the rear bilsteins have those grooves? what do you reccomend doing with them? leaving it on the bottom groove?

Might have to roll the lips on the front fenders. Aside from that my 235's fit just fine.

I'm on the highest groove, 25.5 in rear. If i put it on lowest, it'll probably be around 25 or 24.9x

cool, mines on the second highest. I now know I can atleast raise the rear if they don't fit.

I use 235/40/18 right now with H&R Race springs. It's a perfect setup in my opinion. Never have rubbing and it's low enough for me. Not too hard of a ride yet handling is great.

I couldn't fit the 235's with my race and grooved on the lowest setting. I think the thing people are forgetting that offsets are the real killer here.

what offsets did you have

I'm running thirty five for an offset.

How easy is it to adjust the grooves? and how come they didn't put these on the front struts!?

my junk is 37 with 15mm spacer in the back and 10mm in the front so mixed that's 22mm back and 27mm front. This is on an 8" wheel. I would like to do 20mm in the rears now though.....

plus tire brands play a huge role in how things fit. falkens run narrow, yokohamas and kumhos run wide from my experiences
