Default Re: Other cars with same bolt pattern

Ok if you get a wheel with 48mm offset then then the wheel will actually sit inside the wheel well more. If you get a 42mm offset it will stick out of the wheel well more. Ever seen the photos of my rims? They are a 25mm. However you have to realize that there is negative and posative offset. You won't see negative offset on FWD, they are usually for RWD. Well you might but they will be sticking way out of the car and need some major mods to clear. Quite honestly I don't know what kinds of cars run negative and which run posative any more. So many different wheel designs an cars out there and they aren't as universal as they used to be. Even RWD cars these days don't run similar wheels anymore due to changes in suspension design and larger disc brakes on the front and rear of cars.
