    Wheel Offset question

    I've been looking for a winter wheel option and I found some new alloy wheels that are the same rim size, width and bolt pattern. The problem is the OEM offset is +42mm and this wheel is +51mm. Can anyone confirm that this difference in offset is insignificant? It seems to me that it souldn't make a big difference.

    10mm spacer and they will sit as if they were stock.

    Go look at your car. Will everything clear if the wheel/tire is moved inboard 9mm? I think you're going to be getting awfully close to the knuckle.

    Once he installs longer studs, of course.

    You guys all are right. I would need the spacer and longer studs...Eff that! I found a set of Stocker wheels with a little road rash and the TPMS for 500 total. I lucked out. So now I will slap a set of LM-60's on there and I will be good to go for the next 4-5 years.
