Hi, i'm new in this forum and i'm not sure if my question has been answered in the past pages. They are too many to read all.
I'm thinking to buy some BBS-RS reps 17x7,5 front and 17x8,5 rear ET 30
My problem is the offset. Are they gonna be a lot out of the car body? Will that have some driving disadvantages? Does anyone wear same numbers? Any pics from rear?
Thanks

Most of these questions can be answered by reading the chart. What I want to know isn't on the chart. 20inch wheel figment. Anyone done it? I already have 19s but was thinking of pushing to 20s. I'm guessing no wider than 8 inches? And what offset, do I stick with 45?

hi,

what about r18 8.5J et42 with 225/40 tires? will it rubb?

high of car:



from the look of the picture...no


under really hard cornering though it might. do the fender screw mod and you should be fine.


if youre confident roll the fenders and you'll be set

Thought id share a list.
This is made to make an indicaton on what tyre width people would choose and that every tyre manufacturer have slighty different width in the same tyre size.

This is devided into 3:
1) Straight tire, oem look
2) Slight stretch
3) mucho strecho (edge of rims outside the tyre)

1) Straight tire, oem look (rims width - tyre width):
6" - 195
6,5" - 205
7" - 215
7,5" - 225
8" - 235
8,5" - 245-255
9" - 265
9,5" - 275
10" - 285
10,5" - 295
11" - 305
11,5" - 315
12" - 325
12,5" - 335
13" - 345

2) Slight stretch (rims width - tyre width):
6" - 155-165
6,5" - 165-175
7" - 175-185
7,5" - 185-195
8" - 195-205
8,5" - 215-225
9" - 225-235
9,5" - 235-245
10" - 255-265
10,5" - 275
11" - 285
11,5" - 295
12" - 305
12,5" - 315
13" - 325

3) mucho strecho (rims width - tyre width):
6" - 145
6,5" - 155
7" - 165
7,5" - 175
8" - 185
8,5" - 195
9" - 205
9,5" - 215-225
10" - 235
10,5" - 245
11" - 255
11,5" - 265
12" - 275
12,5" - 285-295
13" - 305

help me please!

So I am about to order 18x10 +15 all around will that fit? or should I get 18x9 in the front and 18x10 in the rear. Keep in mind I don't really want to stagger my wheels!

Rears will be fine. Fronts will rub. Maybe go for a 35 profile or even a 205/40 upfront. Will need to pull fenders for sure as fronts are not an "easy" fitment. A touch of camber would do it wonders though. What ftg because the obviously matters when trying to work it out.
