to be on the safe side you can get a 45 offset or higher.. rubbing issues depend on how low you are and stuff so.. are you going to slam it or?

youll be fine with a 45 offset can't go any wider than 8.5 without modifications.

mQike ran 9.5's iirc w/ his last volks (GTC's I think). He wasnt slammed though... I think finger gaps all around.

Like everyone else said... if you have a coupe you should be good with et45... you'll be cutting it close but it can be made to fit w/ very minimal camber if needed... or folding the inner fender lip up and youll be fine no problemo too.

or you can run a 50 offset and youll be gravy... and youll be able to run fatter tires to protect your wheels/lips.
