Superb width/offset would be just under flush if not fully flush.

Does anyone know what these are? They're asking $650 for the set second hand. For a 2007 gt-b. Looking to go down to 17" x 8" wide for higher profile for dirt racing. 235 45 17 is suggested by the tyre fella.

I'm looking for the cheapest sound rims I can get in Brissie, doesn't matter what they look like.

Hey guys has anyone fitted 18x9.5 +38 Rota Grid R's to their liberty? Will this result in too much poke of the wheel and tyre out past the guard? I really like the concave look of these wheels but also wish to lower the car and don't want to be mucking around with camber and whatnot to avoid it looking silly.

That spec will poke, require guard rolling & clearancing, coilovers and potentially adjustable rear lateral arms.

18 8.5 +45 is master flush with coilovers, guard rolling and rear upper outer camber correction bushes.

Much of the considerations are ride height & tyre profile related, start with a cheap set of used tyres if you think that the sidewalls will get cut on your path to your perfect setup.

I’m on ps5 235 40 18 8.5 +35, coilovers, rear camber correction bushes, finger gap (horizontal tyre top to guard lower edge), stock alignment.

There’s around 5mm poke f&r which hasn’t been an issue apart from on gravel where rally mudflaps might help :P
