      awesome thread. i've been wanting to dial in the offset of my wheels after i have my fenders rolled and this is exactly what i needed.

      my contribution:

      16x8 D90 et 52.3 with 25 & 30mm adapters

      final et of 27.3 front and 22.3 rear with stock fenders


      should i put the 30s up front and get 40s for the rear?

      ^I'd say stick with it. Thats a good stance. I kind of wish I had 8's all around

      more pics! i see a very similar pic in january pvw of the same wheel.. tease

      Alright... ill post some more. Ill also save you guys the trouble of saying something negative about the tire size/choice because i am not happy with them either. I had no choice other than to get the ones i did because at the time of purchase the ones i wanted were on a national back order and this left me with very little to choose from for the show season.


      All random photos were not taken by me and thanks to those who did snap them.

      I would guess the tires are 195/40 all around and that the offsets are roughly et20ish front on a 16x7 and et7ish rear on a 16x8. Just guessing though.

      those sewer lids are a mixed set of rear wheels. gonna guess that all 4 are 8's. they looks soo much better when they are all rears.

      Thats also why i want to run the low ET phone dials, they look alot better than the higher ET.

      they sit under stock fenders is what makes me happy haha. I wanted to do as little body modification to my car as possible. Ill swap the jetta front but will keep the hood and stuff so i could put it back to stock if i wanted.

      the et23.3 phone dials arent going to look as good once you get adapters and tires on them. unless you're going for the et0 look.

      oh they will........im not going to halfass it...if the fenders need pulled they will get pulled....i promise they will look hot.

      I was told the ET on the red car is about a 7 in the rear, 7mm wont make that much of a visual difference so Im hopeful. I was also told those are stock fenders other than being rolled.

      The fronts are going to end up sitting about where an ET20 sits after I adjust the front suspension. As long as this control arm/axle idea works then the front will be fine....the rears will be delt with as time/money permits.
