i know the tires are too big.

i picked up wheels hoping to just bolt on.

then picked up 15mm spacers for rear to see if that would help clearance issue i have. no dice.

now about to get some 225/40/18 tires for wheels. and hoping that will do the trick.

I've seen these wheels on other b5- and wagons. just not sure what else i need to do to get them to fit????

any help would be greatly appreciated.

What are the specs? Tire size, wheel offset, if youíre using spacers how long are your bolts? If you want an answer you need to give all the information.

They are never going to fit without major mods. I will relieve you of the headache. cash in hand

15mm spacers with proper bolts out back-
Tries with 12mm up front but gonna run and most likely mess up my front fenders
So going to try with no spacer to get home- if it works- Iíll look for smaller front spacers - or maybe raise the car up in front a little bit and see what happens

Guess my issue was mainly the beefy- tires

225/40/ on now

Cash in hand-
Price now has gone up due to the new tires going on the wheels as we speak

You should've told us you have monster truck tires on them. It's literally a matter of bolting them on though. Get the appropriate size tires and it's not rocket science. They're not aggressive specs at all.

You're good. Live and learn. If it's not for those tires there's nothing special to do to get those to work.

sorry my pics suck

rears have 15mm spacers
fitted fronts with 12mm but at the height i am at- was at at the shop- i may have done some damage driving home. so we pulled the 12's off for the time being. now i need to decide if i am going to raise the car to use the fronts or leave as is

right now drives nice. not hitting much and when i am its mostly the mud flaps on front and back---or so im thinking.

drive way is my biggest enemy right now.
