    TSW does not list that offset, but their other brand/label, "Beyern Wheels", does. Beyern has the Nurburgring wheel listed as the "Beyern Spartan" with the better offset. Beyern also sells a wheel called the "Bavaria" with the optimal offset. Those are both made using TSW's Rotary Forge method to get a strong, lightweight wheel.
    Thanks.. I have ordered a set of the dual TSW Nurburgring 19x9.5's with the 41mm offset. These will be for the track and my Toyo R888 295.30.19's will go on the rims.

    I already use TSW Nurburgring wheels for the track. The only thing I don't like about that setup is the way the 40 mm offset looks - It sticks out too wide in the front. I don't really care about looks on the track, but it is a little different for street wheels. I am about to replace my factory wheels with Beyern wheels in 45 mm offset for daily use.

    I have Bayern wheels on my V and the offsets are perfect front and back with 19 inch wheels. Bought decals with Cadillac logos to cover the Bayern center caps. Wish they had more concavity but for the price, an excellent deal.

    Which Beyern wheels did you buy, Spartan?

    Where did you get the Cadillac Logos for the center caps? I was thinking about covering up the Beyern Logo.

    I have Bayern Bavaria in matte black. Fronts are 19 x 18.5 40, rears are 19 x 9.5 45. No spacers needed only longer lug nuts. Decals from http://eu-decals.com

    Do these cars push so much, you need a square setup ?

    as far as i can tell you can't get the nurburgring in a 10.5 with the 65 offset in our bolt pattern only in a 27 offset the 65 has the 5x120.65 bolt pattern

    I can get 4) Z06 rear 18" wheels from a 2002 Z06.
    would this fit front and rear of our V's for track usage ?

    I like the square setup on the track because it makes the car easier to rotate. The downside is that it is easier to rotate. It has more of a safe understeer tendency with the staggered setup. It is more lively with a square setup but you can get into trouble faster.

    The other issue is tire wear. On the track, I tear up front tires twice as fast as rear. I get a lot more track-miles on a square setup. I plan to do the same for the street soon.

    I think the 2002 Z06 had 18x10.5" wheels on the rear. That will be hard to fit in the front. Clearance is tight on the inside (wheel lip to spindle clearance) on the factory 9.0" wide wheel. To go wider on the front, all the extra width has to go outboard.

    I took a quick look and the Z06 offset is 54 mm or 58 mm (two sources do not agree). If that is correct, the wheel will hit the spindle. The interference will be about 20 mm. That would be a huge spacer. To make a 10.5" wheel work on the front, you need an offset less than 35 mm. Unless I made a math error.

    Maybe some replica wheels for the front with legits for the rear?
