      The 10" et36 wheel would be 20mm farther out than this one.

      Deff doable, but be ready for lots of stretch and camber fit it to not sit on the fender.

      A little confused, but I have 18x9 wheels with 235/40/18 tires, the offset is ET35 and it works perfectly even very low.

      So better I take ET40.
      A guy said (not sure its true) ET45 with 9" large will hit the control arm
      ""19x9 et45 will not fit on the front of your car. It will hit the control arm. You'll need a 5mm spacer.""
      So I need ET40
      Great if you don't hit when driving i'll take 20mm spacers to go from et60 to et40.

      I needed ET35 to clear my calipers up front, but I have LM's and they are a square face.

      I run on 9 x 20 inch Bentleys with ET 41 and thats no problem of driving low.
      My air-ride completely down and nothing to rub (only the plastic on the inside of the fenders in the front )

      It depends on the wheel face for brake clearance.

      Like I said my flat faced LM's needed 9" Et35 to clear.

      You should be fine if they are concave.

      Actually, getting rid of those wheels would be the best outcome...

      I have 20x9 et40 n the off set is perfect. Flush with the fender and not rubbing on wheel well, control arm, and brakes.

      All I can say is....I'm scared to drive JK. It's going to take awhile to get use to being this low and taking things easy. I'm just afraid of dips in the road and rubbing or god forbid bending my fenders.
      Hi Clifford, what size Trak+ spacers are you running? Have you had any rubbing issues? Thanks, Max

      A 5mm in the rear and 12mm up front. Only time I heard rubbing was with 3 people in the car...but that was over some big dips on the highway. No issues though.
      Would ya look at that..

      Question for those aftermarkets in places that have hard winters:

      Are there specific things to look out for when purchasing wheels? Are some wheels better suited for 'warm weather only' environments? I'm up in Chicago, it can get...nasty. I've never done aftermarket wheels before, but I can't say that I'm a fan of Interlagos. The debate I'm currently having is between one of the VW-supplied wheels, or the Hartmann HTT-256-MA:M.

      I'd prefer not to have a secondary set of wheels for winter.

      On a side note: Can anyone supply more pics of the Hartmann HTT-256's? The lighting in the supplied photos and some of the photos I can find via Google seems a bit off...

      I learned my lesson with my very first set of aftermarket wheels. After the first winter, the salt really took a toll on my wheels. Ever since then, I always threw my stock wheels back on for the winter as mild as the winters are here in the DC area.
