Hi guys, one of my friends is looking to move back to the VAG world and get himself a MkV R32. He used to own a modified 1.4 MkV before his Supra & is wondering if the staggered Brabus Monobloc's he has that he intends to fit onto the R32 will affect the Haldex system? I think there's an inch difference between the front and rear - will that be alright or is he outta luck?

There is no definitive answer on whether staggered wheels affect the Haldex other than plenty of people seem tio run them without issue.

The important thing is not the width but to try and keep the differencial between the front and rear rolling circumferences as equal as possible. By it's nature haldex is more forgiving than a Torsen 4WD set up.

You need to keep your rolling radius within 4% or you will have issues and also fail an MOT.
I'm running 8s upfront and 9s rear but RR is similar due to the correct tyre selection.
