More questions!

What's the largest Wheel size people are using on there MKV?

Will a 18x9.5inch wheel fit? ET35+ front or rear with 35-40profile tires?

Who also is running a staggered setup? larger fronts or larger rears?

Its possible to go down into the 20's with 9's or 9.5's (10's up rear) with a big stretch on a MKV.

Let's not start the age old 'staggered' debate and haldex! I wouldn't do it.

You'll need pulled arches and camber adjusters to cope.

Indeed. I have no intention of going with such an outrageous drop. The wheels I want are the rs05rr but the face type I want is only available in a 9.5' or 10.5'. I want to ride at stock height or a .5-1inch drop with close to neutral camber,and limited tire stretch(245-255). Still looking for what spacers I would need for the et45 wheel.

yea it would look dumb if the wheels were super poked out with huge lips and overly stretched tires
. I'm not getting those style wheels or doing that to my tires.

Put it this way. That style of slamming looks cool for show, but for a daily driver, its just asking for trouble. I run through canyons and highways with drops and holes all over the place. I want a nice sticky tire and some suspension travel, i dont like the idea of having a front bumper that resembles a dogs toy. My under-body already scraps as is.
