Hello all!

OK, finally... im getting a set of wheels for my baby, im tired of these stock ones. But my question is if i go with 18s, is +15mm offset ok, or does it HAVE to be the +20mm ??

thanks guys!

+15 offset might rub depending on the width of the tires.

Well if i were to get the wheels that have a +15mm offset, does anybody have a suggestion on a safe tire size?

thanks

This is a picture of my 540 with 19s. This picture was taken prior to my putting Eibach springs on lowering it an inch. It looks a little monster truckish in this picture. It looks a whole lot cleaner now.

Nice car...

those rims are huge, how did it affect ride quality before you lowered it?
