Must address the bolt. I used appx .6" true spacers with longer studs. No other rubbing issues with 265/50/20 size. The wk2 20" wheels are 1/2" wider and nearly all of it is to the inside of the wheel.

The first pic in post #15 shows the ball jt bolt that will contact the tire (wk2 20" wheels with 265/50/20) if you do not address it, i.e. cut it or space the wheel away from it. There is one on each side.

Just wondering how the 265/60R20s looked on the WK2. Can you post a pic?
