Hi everyone,

im thinking of a change of wheels i cant fit my brembo callipers behind my 17" ABT wheels, the offset is wrong (ET30) i would need 10mm spacers to make them fit and with my 235 width tyres it looks daft as they stick out too far.

Rather than buying 4 wheel spacers and 4 new tyres im thinking of buying 4 18" seat leon cupra r wheels.

im not sure if they would look good or not, has anyone seen them on a mk4 before and does anyone know what the offset is on this wheel????[?][?][?]

Nice one mate, think i might go for it, i need to find out the offset for the Leon Cupra r wheel, i dont really want to fit wheel spacers, i know the leon cupra r has brembos but i dont know if the calipers i have are from a leon or an ibiza,

PRT NO for callipers,

They should fit regardless.

Somewhere on the brembo website is a PDF document which give you details of the wheel clearance needs.

Your Cupra R wheels should be fine.

Cheers lads, i thought flip it and ordered them from seat today got a 5% discount aswell,

?770, for the 4, also ordered 4 tyres from a local tyre dealer, Vredestein Ultrac 225/40/18,

i dont think ?1240 aint a bad price for 18's and tyres.

Sorry mate. Can you not cancel your orders with Seat and the tyre dealer? I'd give it a try if I were you!! Good luck.

Cheers for the help lads,

got the wheels on friday, fit straight on, got sum VW center caps and sum covers to go over the bolts just too finish them off O.E style.

the brembos fit a treat behind them as well.

once again cheers for the help. (-:

Any, pics?

I had the 17" version of the Leon R wheel on my Fabia for a while, they looked pretty sweet and cleared my Brembos ;)

Bugger to clean though.

You need to host them on the net somewhere (try www.photobucket.com) then when you post a reply on the thread click on the wee picture icon which will bring up a set of brackets like this [img] except the second one will have a fwd slash in it.

Then copy and paste the url of the picture in between the sets of brackets and voila!

Have to say I love those wheels as well. Looks great on the black 4Mo too [^]

Easy to clean as well but then I'd need to get the brakes sorted out to Brembos [;)]
