Offset make a big differenc e.
 
LS mesh are a +45 offset:


these are +15 offset:


These are 0 offset:


Those are the most common offsets people use. Hope that helps.

the lower the offset (closer to 0), the more its going to poke out from the car.

Have to consider the width of the wheel too. Plays a big role.

i haven't. sadely i havent given much thought to this because im just throwing ideas around in my head. i would jut like a look with the wheels sticking out of the wells a little bit. plus, i thought it would be a good thread for other people like me who have simply no idea.

I just ordered some from eBay for now. There 15x7 with low 25 of offset. . If you do a search on Ebay 4x100 they pop up. They have like a 4 inch lip but still sit almost like the red HB above. I daily mine and these 17s suck with all the pot holes in Michigan . Cheap and nice look.

Anyone know the tire size on that HB? Not to change the subject.

Mugen Mr5's 15x6.5 +38 (195 50/15)


Tried my friends 16x8 +20 Work's  (195-40/16) (left the ride height the same as with my MR5's. Definitel y would need to lower it..... A LOT)



It is a tough game to play with the offsets, wheels and camber... They all play a part in the stance.. I guess it depends on what you are looking for..
Would love to see more on this thread but with the EF Chassis.. I

Www.willt heyfit.co m

I like to keep oem backspaci ng.

IMO, figure out what size tire you want and how you want it to fit (max rubber, stretch, etc.)

For example, I prefer around +24 on an 8" wide wheel, +12 on 9", -1 on a 10", and -13 on a 11".
