Thread: 19" RS6 on mk4 gti with coilovers

    19" RS6 on mk4 gti with coilovers

    Just purchased a used set of Audi RS6 19" alloys for my golf gti mk4 they were previously fitted to a mk4 with lowering springs . Yet I put them on mine that has coilovers fitted and the front tyres rub on the strut ??? Yet guy previous had no issues nor spacers on them ??? The rear is lowered right down and is fine its the front giving me grief the front is approx 1/2 way down the threads I was expecting them to give me grief on arches but they are fine . Has anyone had this problem or have any ideas how solve the problem I don't wanna sell wheels as I quite like them and spent days rubbing them down and painting them . Please help tyres fitted are 235/35zr19

    hi mate , had a similar issue when going pretty low on rs6's myself , similar to you mine where catching the adjusters. I just bought some spacers 8mm for the front and 12mm for the rear stops the rubbing and also gives a better stance imo. You could always opt for different tyres at a later date to give a more stretched look such as 215's or some lads even run 205's not cheap though. hope that helps mate.
