I bought theses wheels for a 2012 TT RS I had many calls with Tire Rack before actually purchasing them. To get these wheels to fit with out bottoming out in the wheel well I had to roll the lip, reduce the tire size, and I also had a little machine work done. I was repeatedly told by Tire Rack they had a guy in their shop that had no problems with his TT RS. They also told me to check into the adjusting the camber, well there is no camber adjustment on the TT RS. I was glad because at the cost of my tires I really didn't want to adjust the camber anyway. The less expensive route to fix the issue was to reduce my tire size and even with that I occasionally get tire rub in the wheel well when I have a passenger and hit a bump or dip in the road. I notice now that they have a notation on these wheels that says "Aggressive Fitment" so at least they acknowledge the problem now, however because of this experience I'm very disappointed in Tire Racks customer service.
