    Not always the case I'm afraid...

    Single piece 16" wheels should...as the poverty TTs came with 16" wheels.

    But, I have my old S3 brakes on my Mk3 GTI...and the 16" BBS RXIIs DO NOT clear the brakes as standard.

    I had to do some work to make them fit...but as standard, not all 16" wheels will clear the S3s 312mm discs and callipers - it's the callipers that don't clear.
