    Hi

    I have decided to take the plunge and go for some 19inch bbs ck's on my 04 plate 2.0 tdi 140 and going to drop it on kw coilovers. Will the arches need rolling before this takes place? How bad is the rubbing going to be if I don't?

    Thanks

    James

    i belive if you remove one screw you should be fine, spacers would help though

    I'm dropped 65mm on my Weitec's, and had 215's on my 19's

    No problems at all unless i'm cornering really hard
