I've seen this done on a lot of other forums... we can put together a thread where we all show some pictures of our car and describe the wheel/tire/suspension combination we're running. It is a really useful resource when you are shopping for parts.

I'll get things rolling, but here is the basic template we should try to stick to to keep the thread useful.

Wheel Size:
Wheel Offset:
Wheel Brand/Model:
Tire Size:
Tire Brand/Model:
Suspension:
Issues: Do you rub? Need spacers? Tell us here.
Notes: If you have any other notes/review about the products listed, feel free to add that (like if the tires you bought suck, didn't wear well, etc...). Other specs like how much your wheel/tire combo weighs would be nice, but I know that is not always easy to come by.
Pictures: A few shots to give us an idea what it looks like.

Mine:
Wheel Size: 15 x 7
Wheel Offset: ET+42
Wheel Brand/Model: TR Motorsports C1
Tire Size: 225/50R15
Tire Brand/Model: Kumho Ecsta AST
Suspension: Stock (GS)
Issues: No rubbing. No Spacers.
Notes: Not much to say about the tires so far. I did take the time to weigh one of the wheels, it was about 33lbs with the tire mounted. The wheel is supposed to be about 12.5lbs.

Pictures:
Mounted on the car:


Stacked next to the stock tires (175/70R14) on 14 x 6 VW Snowflakes:


The 225 width compared to the stock 175 width:

Wheel Size: 17 x 7
Wheel Offset: +42
Wheel Brand/Model: American Racing AR86
Tire Size: 205/40/R17
Tire Brand/Model: Falken 912
Suspension: Stock...for now
Issues: No rubbing cause my diameter is with the 3% range. I could use some spacers for the rear wheels. Like other people have said don't go with anything less than 45 unless you are prepared for the harsh ride!
Notes: I believe the rims weight about 18 lbs each so maybe 25 - 30 lbs with tires? I don't know for sure lol

I'd go as far as saying its a 6" wide wheel. I had 205/50 on a 15x6 wheel and it looked similar.

You can kind of see them on this picture
