Wheel offset

Postby albert_ey » Thu Aug 14, 2008 11:36 am

ok, I searched, but I didn't find anything on here about this (maybe I'm horrible at searching).

I googled it, but I found myself getting more confused because i'm not sure what offsets will fit a Z.

ok, so I want to buy wheels for my Z. I want something similar to the ones in the picture. Something with a nice deep lip, and also pretty wide on the back.



I have no idea what offset, or size or any of that suff. I'm still learning.

I want to fit in the widest wheel with a fat lip without having to do any major modifications. Give me some info and numbers.

pls excuse my inexperience.

Thank you!!

So as long as I stay with that offset, i'll be ok? Also, what is the offset range that will fit the Z without mods?

I really like the wheels in that picture, does anyone know what wheels they are?

I like the whole 6 "spoke" thing. I'm gonna have to do some photshop magic and see how they look on the solar orange.

Thanks for your reply's thus far.

Have a good one!

Well this is how it goes there will be many different application. For instance JETPILOT was saying in another thread that 295 tire works good on 10" wide wheel with a +25mm offset and a 275 tire witrh a 9" wide wheel and +22mm offset works good. So you can see the way this works it all depends on your width ands ratio (profile) of your tire. Like I said find those wheels and then post us back we will do all we can to make sure you get the right fit. I will seee if I can find those wheels for you.

I really like these.



There's more info on sizes and offsets on This site.

I wonder if these would look good on the solar orange.

Does anyone know what the ones in the picture above are? Or something similar?

Thanks!

As far as a 295 rear... yes you wil have to roll your fender lip. No big deal. The 275 front requires no modifications.

If you like mesh wheels check out the WORK VS-XX. They are very hot.

Depending on your wheel offset and how low your car is you will likely not have to roll your quarter panel lip wit ha 275 tire.

Yeah JET I plan to keep my car at this height no suspension mods or lowering and would like a 275 rear and 245 front sort of what I have now staggered just different wheels because they change the whole look of the car. Thanks for explaining this.

Mezz just ordered my JWT popchargers.

EDIT: OH JET the Volk (GT-F's) II am thinking of getting offer 18 x 9 and 19 x 10.5. I will keep the 245 in the front so I should stay with 30mm offset right but what about the 10.5 in rear do I add or subtract from 30mm for .5 difference.

You're probably going to want to lower your car to give it a more agressive stance so it sits right even more so when changing wheels. Changing wheels and leaving the OE ride doesn't really look good.

I would suggest the Eibach Pro Kit. it lowers approx 1" and improves the handling.

That's the problem, I don't know what offset range I will be good with. The original are +30mm front and +33mm rear, But how much can I give or take?

Thanks again!

You can't talk about offset without talking about the wheel width. A +30 offset is meaningless. A +30 on a 10.5" wheel means something.

I don't know the offsets available, but I do know they are pretty much a custom wheels and you can spec your own offsets.

Rick @ Status has these in stock for the Z. These look like good offsets. (310) 618-8886

I will be getting the Volk CE28 N.

Volk CE28N 18×9.5 - Front & Volk CE28N 18×10.5 - Rear

However, there are a number of offsets for each.

The 18x9.5 fronts have the following offsets: +25 +30 +40 +47 +52The 18x10.5 rears have just one offset: +18

So... what tire sizes should I buy? And what offset?

I would be looking at a 245 front and a 265 or 275 rear? Again, what offsets would be best?

Thanks.
