Wheel Offset

8 posts in this topic

Does anybody know the offset of the Street/X Pack 17" alloys?

If I were to buy a new set of 18" alloys, would the offset have to be the same as the wheels currently on the car?

Thanks

These wheels are 7x17 ET 47.5

I fancy fitting 18's at some point also. Ashman has 18's fitted and I think he has no problems with rubbing etc. Can't remember if he posts on her or ZSOC.

That's perfect, thanks. Im needing 4 new tyres and one of my wheels is buckled, so hopefully I will have some 18" OZ Superturismos + Eibachs springs on it soon B)

Oooohhh can't wait, 18" OZ Superturismo's is what I fancied getting. They're just really expensive. Get some pics up if you do get them. B) Do you fancy getting the silver or black ones?

I decided against it im afraid due to the cost of the wheels and the resulting increase of my insurance premium. Ive ordered a set of Continental Conti-Sports from Kwik-fit, getting them fitted tomorrow. Il maybe use the extra cash for a Stoffler diffuser :rolleyes:

You should go for the OZs though. I prefer the silver OZs but on your car the black ones would be spot on.

Sometimes I see some cars with black wheels and think that looks OK but I suppose I'm still old fashioned and would have silver wheels. Maybe someday I'll get a set of 18's, think I've spent enough on cars lately. :D

The Superturismos are lovely alloys, but you dont want your alloys to look aftermarket, that is another reason which put me off. Also for the £1500, I dont think you are getting wheels which are significantly better looking than the Street Pack alloys.

Cant wait to get my Continental tyres now!
