Hi gyus, I'm new to the forum. I love this car and it was a dream to me since it received the 1.4T engine.
The thing is, the car is a bit low for my city, where it's hard to find a perfect plain asphalt.
So, mine LT came with the 205/70R16 tire, but I wanna upgrade to 18" rims. I was considering the 225/55R18 Bridgestone Dueler, but the prices are rising.
Then I saw a 225/60R18 Sailun, which is way taller than the current 205/70R16 that I have.
Do you guys know if it fits without catching anything, like the shocks or the internal panels?

About 5% bigger, You may bog down that little 1.4T. It already has a hard time taking off from a dead stop but it's your vehicle, go for it if they don't rub. You will be going 105kph when your speedometer reads 100. You will only gain 17mm in height.

At least you have no snow to worry about in Brazil.

Well, here, the 1.4T is sort of a fast engine :D.
Most of the cars are 1.0 and 2.0 naturally aspirated.
And I plan on doing some ECU changes in the future.

But do you think that they'll hit the base of the shocks?
I guess +1,7cm would help me a lot around here.

At least you have no snow to worry about in Brazil.
Thanks!

Don't know, never tried that big of a tire but it's going to be close fit to the strut table. You can always put spacers to push the wheel out. I put 1" spacers on mine so I could put 235.
