Exclamation whats a good offset???

i have 3/4 drop, but i wanna run 18's. i found rims that are 18x7.5 with a back spacing of 6.0in. and the offset is +45.00mm will that rub? i want that flush look without it sticking out what so ever.

i also saw on minitruckin magazine that they recommend the offset to be 15-35mm, why whats the difference??

Also what would be good size tires and brand??

Re: whats a good offset???

At that offset and height you wont have to worry about rubbing. However your wheels will be a bit sunk in if you are going with only a 7.5in with you can go with an offset around the mid 20s somewhere between 25-30 on the offset would be closer to what you are looking for.

Sorry I couldn't add this to my previous post. Here is a photo. I have NO rubbing problems except for the fact that right now my sway bar link arms are both broken. So I rub because the sway bar is useless at the moment. ImageUploadedByAutoguide1352309639.642216.jpg

Do your research and find rims you like, them check eBay. I got the ones on my 98 for $110 a piece. The ones on my SR were about $200 a piece.

Urbandictionary.com states the following on "ricey"
Making a car "ricey" simply means spending the bare minimum on modifications that instead of helping your car perform better, sound better and/or look better, they actually do the opposite.

Keep it classy people. Appreciate your car, if you can't afford nice modifications, save your money.
Putting a hood on an Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X that has more than 3 vents on it is ricey(Japanese example).

Putting a carbon fiber muffler you purchased on ebay on your Volkswagen R32 as opposed to getting a real catback exhaust is ricey(Euro example).

Putting 20" chrome wheels on a Ford Mustang LS is ricey(this might also just be called "stupid")

Putting Altezza style taillights on any car that does not come with them out of the factory is ricey(such as a Lexus is300, is400)
