Hi all,

I've found a set of nice looking locally made 16 or 17x7 alloy rims.

But (and isn't there always a but when you're talking Mk2 rims) the lowest offset is 20mm.

I'm wondering what the consesus here is with regard to how close the offset should be to 8mm to be acceptable in terms of handling, fitment and appearance.

See: Hyperfang II: http://www.speedywheels.com.au/Speedy_Alloy.htm
And 2nd hand with tyres: http://forums.toymods.org.au/index.php?t=msg&th=19516&start=0&rid=1407&S=be823f2d4e03a4139023b7f721741979



Around Aus. $900 a set.

cheers,

Justin

8mm isn't close enough to acceptable looks wise imo. The stock rims fit just fine on the front, but they need to stick out about another 20mms on the rear to look right. But yes, you can run +20mm rims front and back without any rubbing issues. The front will look ok but the rear won't look so hot. You can safely run up to a 10mm spacer in the rear with new studs though, then you'll be about stock for offset at least.

Thanks for that Suprafiend!

More procrastination on the way! As I've got crappy aftermarket wheels, I'm in a real quandry over what to do. Buy stockers & put 235s on rear, get cheapish one piece 16s for looks and BBK options, wait til I get my superannuation and can afford Simmons OM16s. Still, it gives me something to do ... aside from work :)
