When Rob picked up his TDI Jetta he came to me with a plan that was set in motion long before he even took delivery of the car. Taking me aside once and showing me a picture of a particular Jetta in Europe running Bentley wheels he said, “I’m gonna do something like this…” It was a matter of a week or two at most before Rob received a set of OEM Bentley wheels measuring 19×9 with a 41mm offset in chrome.
Chrome is something rarely embraced in the local euro-scene but Rob was prepared to go against the norm and show he wasn’t afraid to run a different look we typically don’t see. While many are quick to ditch the chrome trim around the windows, grill and bumpers Rob saw those as accents to help tie in the chrome wheels he knew he wanted. He picked up a set of chrome mirror caps too. The only other concern we had was fitment.
Special-ordering a set of 215/35-19 Falken FK452s and stretching them on Rob’s 9″ wide wheels was a necessary call since the 19s would already take up a lot of space in the Mk5 fenders. While it’s a sacrifice to some ride comfort Rob reports it has been riding surprisingly well. And I have to admit, the stretch looks fantastic!
Prior to installation, Rob had prepared the Jetta’s fenders and had them rolled so extra clearance would allow the wheel and tire combo to fit. (I hear a local vortex kid is a whiz at fender rolling – contact us if you ever need to get a hold of him.) Once that was done, we had one thing left to do before we could mount the wheels to the car…
Stasis Streetsport Coil-Overs brought the high-flying Jetta TDI back to ground level in order to hug the 19×9 Bentley wheels. Comfort was a huge factor for Rob since this is his daily driver and the reputation of Stasis coil-overs made the choice a no-brainer. We just weren’t sure how low we’d be able to bring down the suspension in order to clear wheels and tires – turns out, we were able to go all the way! The end result is a rather amazing stance for a Mk5 Jetta sitting on 19×9″ wheels – and a TDI at that!
Congrats on the new look Rob! I love it!!
