      I want to run a set of staggered Miro 111's on my MK6 golf and in order to properly pull it off I need the rear wheels (18x9.5) that only come with a 40et offset to be machined down to a 45et.

      Anyone know off a macine shop or company that can pull this off if I send them 2 wheels? All that needs to be done I guess is 5mm shaved off. I know it seems like a lot of work for some Miro's, but staggered concaved wheels look sick.

      5mm is a lot of meat, machine shops are going to need to take a look at the pads while the wheel is off the car to see if there is enough material there to starting shaving it off.

      From my understanding, 5mm is the absolute max that a shop would take off (assuming they feel comfortable taking on the job in the first place).

      Might want to try your regional forum. Who knows, you may get lucky
