Does anybody know whether or not I can use a 16" Rim (5x112 with a 35mm offset). They would be used with a 205 55 16 tire.

My issue is the 35 mm offset.

I've been told that the offset should be between 42mm and 53mm.

I've found a good set of used winter tires on aftermarket alloy rims, but they are 35mm offset and I'm worried they will stick out too far in the wheel wells

Does anybody have a firm idea as to whether this would be a problem?

Thanks!

No idea. Be carefull though because the disc's on the GTI are huge, you may have a problem getting those rims to fit. The dealer does offer a 16" rim/tire package for the winter but I'm not sure what the specs are on the rim.
