      Oh man those are the wheels I'm working towards lol. How does it ride with such big wheels in the back? Feel weird at all? Looking into 18's with 8.5 et 35 but I'm not sure how well that will fit. I just bought a beetle so I'm refreshing on offset and barrel width.

      I ran 17x9.5 et22 in the front and 17x9.5 et18 in the rear. 18x9.5 can fit. You just need to make sure you have enough room to clear the strut on the inside, the rear is a piece of cake.

      Expenses in F1 have gone down since the 1960s because teams don't need an extra pit crew to help the driver carry around his balls when he is not in the car.
