    Anyone running aggressive offset?

    Hey guys
    Iíve read some of the posts about wheel fitment. Just wondering if anyone is running a more aggressive offset than like a +35? If you are Iíd appreciate the model and size wheels ur running. Pics are great too. Thanks

    I get slight rub on the inner fender liner under the frame rail if the car is loaded into a corner. but no binding issues.

    Hey those wheels look awesome on your car. I was hoping to run something with a deeper dish though. The closer to 0 offset the better lol. But from what I’ve seen on the forum most guys are only running like+35 offset or higher no?

    when calculating new tire setups i use https://www.willtheyfit.com/ to help sort it out. you can likely fit a rim with 0 offset. an 8" rim with 0 offset is gonna poke out 1.5" further than as you see pictured above. which is gonna be flush or a bit poke.

    no idea what it would do to driving characteristics though.

    Awesome thanks for the information. I’ll check that link out

    I run a 17x8 et35 Oz racing wheel and I don't consider it aggressive fitment at all...

    with a 235 45 17, it doesn't scrub, doesn't poke, fits in superbly well...
    No guard work has been done on my 2000 Facelift VR4 Wagon.

    I've been looking at going to a 17x8.5 et 30 instead which will sit a bit more aggressively

    but I rather like my current wheels...

    235/45/17 on a 8" wide with a +35 offset is going to be getting close to the rear arch with the sidewall. Within a few mm. There are always options but if you go wider/lower offset then be prepared to have to solve rubbing issues.

    Ya I really like the flush look, slight poke is ok but I’d probably wanna run some negative camber in that situation. If I can fit a more concave wheel with more aggressive offset that’s really what I’m looking for

    I don’t have much experience with fitment so I’m honestly just guessing what will fit. I am hoping for flush fitment with a low offset if possible, wasn’t sure if that ther guys were running similar setups or if a +35 was about it
