      You seem way too worried about changing your wheels. Just make sure you don't put the new wheels on backwards or you will start flying down the street in reverse.
      They're going to their house over there.
      You're not utilizing your education properly.

      Offset is not the width. There is a third number on the wheel. It may say et in front of it. I am guessing et50 or something close.

      If you run the size I said you will have no speedometer or transmission issues.

      I am on my eighth set of wheels in three years.

      Ew...ok. 215/40 is a must. 225/40 or bigger will rub. It will also look a little silly until you lower it.

      Make sure you remove the front fender liner screw and roll the fenders.

      I like how he continues to ignore this while he worries about throwing a CEL by swapping wheelss..

      Some people aren't made for this.

      Missed that part Aren't most oem wheels ball seat regardless of the car they came on? Thought conical was primarily just a aftermarket thing.

      He's not lowered and doesn't seem to plan on doing it. I think it'll poke a little tire at stock ride height.

      Welcome to Vortex. It doesn't get any better.

      And it's cool you're doing this. Not my cup of tea on the wheels, but if you like them then throw them on. But definitely listen to these guys about the parts you need and the extra things you need to do to avoid damaging the car or destroying ride quality, they know what they are doing.

      False.

      Be thankful this thread has lasted as long as it has without any real trolling or negative comments. This has been the most kind noob thread I have ever seen that didn't contain a young attractive girl.
