Yes it does when your not on a smooth road. I would dare you to try your wheels with stech and you will know what im talking about. I was on that road so I know what im saying. I hated those deeps and mini ramps ( I dont really know what to call em) on the road because it always rubbed. It would be fine on smooth and flat roads but where can you really find those. Yes, its the width and tire size that plays a huge factors on rubbing, but suspension does too. Op will know what im saying when he puts it on and especially when he has a passenger. Thats just my input.

This is what my set up was with stech. No prob on smooth roads but rubs when I drive through those deeps and hills, worse when I have a passenger.

What size tires are those? That's obviously your issue. You can see your tire is pretty fat for that wheel width just from the photo. It also looks like it has a tall profile as well. That's your issue. Not the s-techs.

It was the stech. I took this picture when I bought that tire and before I removed my stech just to remember the difference beetween 2 tires. This one is 225/50/17 that im running now without the stech. The size that I was running with stech was 215/50 the oe specs and was still rubbing. when I bought this tire, I removed the stech and bought an eibach with koni. Rubbing stopped and finally I could have a full passenger.
Now my car is back on the original height because im planning to put a wider wheels with bc coils.
Anyway, I guess we'll just see how it turns out with the op.
Maybe youre right and im wrong. But hey I experienced that set up.

Here's the comparison on willtheyfit.com to my set up. It will work op. You will need to roll your fenders.

Wheel gap is like a vagina… The more fingers you can fit, the worse it is.

Recently purchased a set of Brembo 4 piston calipers and rotors for my 04 6. Brembo listed a Gran Turismo kit (1A4.6005A1) for my car. My car comes with the stock 17" five spoke rims with a +50 offset (not exactly sure what the offset is) I have 8mm clearance from the caliper to the back side of the spokes. The new calipers are at least and 1" wider than the factory calipers. I am planning to get a new set of rims and tires in any event. I was considering the Enkei VR5 18/8 with the +40 offset with the Nitto NT05 245/40R18.
I know the +40 is still to much of an offset to fit the new calipers.
I have no problem and planned to add some width to the fenders to be able to fit the wider tires. My concern now is what off set I should be looking for and what rim manufacture people are using to fit the wider tire.

My question: has anyone else installed the Gran Turismo caliper kit on the 04? and if so, what rims are they using and with what offsets. I was really hoping for the Enkei VR5, however they do not offer the rim with less than a +40 offset.

PS: TEIN is manufacturing a set of Super Street coil overs with the active control. I will be setting the car a little lower in the front and in the rear I have air bags to raise or lower the rear depending on weight distribution at the track or road coarse. The active control will allow for dynamic rebound and dampening on autocross days.

Thanks in advance
