    I can get a set of bbs ch wheels which i will use during winter times. They ome from a vw gti 30th ed but the et44 worries me a bit.

    Will they fit because my speedlines are et48 and just fit but the ch's are 8.5j but i am not sure that makes a difference.

    So will et44 fit with 8j

    Thanks

    Why didn't you just send a pm? What size tyres are you planning to run? I'm running 18x8 ET45 currently with a 225/40/18, can still run it quite low, but I'm on air, you'd have to play around with ride height.

    On what height can you still drive it? Any rubbing?

    I'm on air ride, so I run off PSI. You'll have to just see how it goes, either lower/raise.

    I've been running 8x18 ET43 with 225/40 18 and Bilstein PSS B14 coilovers (not very low though) for some time now and I have no problems... you'll be fine :)
