What are the offset or backspace numbers with your wheels?

Those will look hot! That won't be too much BS for an 18x8 in the front?

It should be perfect, I've talked to quite a few pro touring type guys. Some have as much as 6.5 inch backspace. From measuring with my dinky old 15's I don't forsee a problem.
I'll re-measure before putting in the order though, Hopefully this week.

It helps to use the new tires for measuring the back space.

Re: I'm just about ready to pull the trigger on these wheels.

Sorry for the long delay... lol.

It took me a while to commit to ordering them. Scary to spend that much on wheels but you only die once... But first I took my son to Disney World for his 8th birthday.....

Wheels are about a week from being finished..... But shipping thm to Canada will take another week.


They posted a pic on Instagram of my wheels getting made, So stoked.
I ended up doing a 5 inch backspace on the fronts, after talking to tons of people and wheel companys.

You won't see them on my car anytime soon as I'm doing a full frame swap currently. Hope to be rolling sometime this summer though. Life just rolls by to quick these days though.




Slow going these days but I feel like the luckiest guy in the world to even be able to do this .

Re: I'm just about ready to pull the trigger on these wheels.

Those should look real good on your car. You might want to go bigger for the rear tires I got 275s on my 9in wide wheels and there perfect just slightly wider than the wheel to provide some curb protection and lucky for my it did the other day when I barked a curb taking a corner.
