No, the wheels shouldn't adversely affect your suspension <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

Have you run the sizes through the T&W size calculator in the stick thread? It's in the "Technical Information" section.

Re: wheel size and offset question... (mattdoc)

i did run them through the wheel calculator...it states the new set-up would stick out 14mm more than the stock setup. <p>is that too much???

No thats not much at all, should be fine. I bought some 38mm wheels as well and have no reason to expect any rubbing. Main cure for that is just getting a smaller width tire <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: wheel size and offset question... (ForceFed Motorsports)

so is there anyone out there currently rolling the 38mm offset? <br>if so, what width tire are they mounted to?
