    And to make things worse, the pathetic...

    They should fit ok. They are the correct stud pattern and the offset is about right for a Golf.

    Best to do a test fit first, but they "should" fit.

    Some E85 or octane booster aside - as I dont think this will have any affect on the issue as well as being inconvenient (E85) or very expensive (octane booster). The issue is that the engine is...

    What is the reasoning behind wanting 245's? Because 235/35 is a more common tyre size so there will be more brands to choose from and prices will be cheaper.
