That price really puts a damper on things
How much for just the wheels? And do you have pictures?FYI to the perspective GS competitors - a good GS starter pack is now for sale in the classifieds. 17x8 OZ wheels + strano bar + MBRP 3" 304 cat back exhaust. If someone wanted all 3, I'd be willing to sell it as a bundle for $1050 + shipping (local pickup preferred).

Generally people use a hole saw and drill out directly above the adjuster. Only problem is the adjuster is still tough to grab hold of... you won't be able to use the Koni knob.Hi - for anyone here that's installed Konis, could you share a picture of how you modified the strut brace to get access to the front top adjusters?
Yes, GS. Follow the links to the pics here in the forum.I want to see these PHOTOS! Both inside wheels is worth looking at. And this is GS, right?
Good observation. I recall the GTi GS guys do the narrow rear tires for this reason as the rear isn't as lively as the FoST. I never really found rotation on this platform to be an issue, but mainly its very easy to overdrive the front end even with an LSD, and it still takes discipline with the right foot, although its much easier to do so than in open diff/brake vectoring form .I can't find the thread where we talked about trying a non-square tire setup for GS, so I'm just gonna plant it here...
255/40-17 Bridgestones in front, 245s in back. Surprisingly not awful. It was easier to be fast than with 245s square, mainly because of better power transfer. Downside is predictability and neatness... it's more difficult to catch the rear if you toss the car.
Overall, it highlighted that I prefer a square setup and 255 square gives the most grip. I've yet to find a reason to stick with 245s unless you're having troubles with cold rear tires and you should fix that by proper tire compound choice for your environment, alignment, and shocks. If you consistently want more rotation, change the rear swaybar.
