simple answer please... so when measuring for a spacer, obviously measuring from the tire to the edge of fender, but do you have someone sit in the trunk while measuring to account for bumps??
Mk1 rabbit convertible.. current 14s are et35 (stocks were 13s), lowered 60/75mm. Fronts look decent, but I think its the tires since they are a little wide) Lol. I need new tires.. but the rears are way off. I don't know what offset I need to make them flush. They look to be a good 3/4inch or so. Help please?
EDIT: Just going to put this out there..I want to get coilovers for my car, and still use my stock steelies (Mk3 Golf GL) and was wondering if i would need spacers and what sizes. Or would i be fine without them and not have problems?looking to lower a bit more than 2in front & back

The problem is that most wheel I'm looking at are 5x112 I have an adopter that cover the problem, but the adopter size is 30mm all four what et size to I need to keep everytrhing in line without anything sticking out. I would like a clean look with this set up. Any assistance would be greatly welcome.
So I am ordering Wheels for my 67 camaro.. and I am in a pickle here.. So hopefully someone can help..
The car has a different rear end that is about a inch shorter than stock.. and I got a backspace of 3.5" the stock backspacing of a wheel for that car is 4.5
Now I want to go with a 9.5 inch rear wheel.. and for stock backspacing it says go 5.5 "
So given my situation should I order a 6.5"? Or less? I am so confused by this..

I am running 18x8.5 with 220/40/18's on there now. I want to get new wheels and keep these tires as they still have alot of tread left. Anyways, I am wanting to go staggered with 18x8 for the fronts and 18x9 for the rears. I believe the rears with these 220/40/18's will looked stretched a little bit which I won't mind at all. Is there any problems with this staggered setup?
I have a set of d90s 7'' et55 for an mk2 what size spacers? I have a set of 42mm ones that I took to a local machine shop who said theyll be able to mill them down without a problem, so I'm pretty sure I can run a 30mm but i dont want to cut them too short.... anybody know if that size will work? or do I need 35s??

I have a 1995 passat glx...current wheels specs stock (bottlecaps) 5x100 33mm offset (i think)195/65/r15, im wondering what size adapters would i need to run some 205/55/r17 tires on wheels with 5x114.3 pattern 48mm offset?? i know i need 5x100 to 5x114.3 thats a given but im stuck on how thick, and studs sizes, also hub-centric or lug-centric....i figure hub but idk. Really just worried about clearances and rubbing of course. help. Thanks.
I have a mk iv gti. current wheels are the montreal ii 16x6.5 et 42 tires are 205/55-16. I am looking at a set of Kazera KZ-W 18x7.5 et 50 tires are 225/40-18. Im curious as to if they will fit, and if not a 7mm spacer will help clearance without hitting the fenders. I have the spacer, and I dont think the wheels clear the brakes on the back.
Lip Swap questions.
Looking at a set of OZ Mito's.
Front: 18x8 et 40
Rear: 18x10 et 45
I think the lips are 1.25" on the front and 1.75" on the rear. If I swapped the front lips to the rear, That would put me at 18x8.5 et 34 front and 18x9.5 et 51 rear. I think...

I have the opportunity to acquire 2008 R32 OE 18" wheels for my 2011 Jetta Wagen TDI. Does anyone know if this is a plug-n-play install?
The JSW has an 18" wheel option with 225/40-18 tires from the factory so it seems like it would fit if the offset/bolt-pattern are compatible. I am running the optional 17" setup on the car now.
Thanks in advance!
The last 50 or so posts start with "I have.." or "Will ____ fit"
I came to this thread for insight on proper offset thinking if I started a thread with questions like that Id get flamed but thats all the content in this thread
16X6.5" Wheel, Looking for a nice clean amount of stretch for daily driving not a lot of stretch.
What do you recommend?
I was thinking 195/40/16 but I'm not to fond of tire sizes I always just replaced tires with stock size.
Thanks in advance!
I have a 2001 A4 Quattro. It came with factory 16's on it. I did the front brake "upgrade" to the A8 rotors and the TT caliper brackets. My question is... I bought some 18 Flat Five wheels off of a 2005 A8. The offset is 45 and they are 8.5 width. Can someone suggest a tire size and possible spacer size/s to me? I want am aggressive stance and the car will be dropped 2 inches. Thanks in advance for taking your time to help a fellow member out
