Default Wheel decision

Hey CL,

So I'm up and down with purchasing my wheels now. I was going to do the XXR 968 ( Work Equip reps ;somewhat) Black Chrome's in a 20x9 +35 and a 20x9 +15 rears. would be perfect fit.

But then I was looking into the CL vendor market on here and I couldn't get my eyes off the Rennen CSL 1 Step lip wheels.

Questions about them; which I wanted to do from the start were 20x10's all around, now just the matter of offsets.

Will 20x10 +35 or 30 fronts and 20x10 +20 in the rears be fine?

Much finder works needed? or just shaved?

Decisions, Decisions...

Why not run staggered? 20x9 and 20x10?
with 20x10 and 235 series tires you probably going to have some rubbing.. of course if the car is lowered

Im AWD 20's staggered with no issues. IMO GS's look better with fat rears

Are you planning on lowering it?
If not, with 20x10 +25 - +30 the wheels will be poking out wider than the fenders.

Sorry I forgot to add, Yes im currently lowered on BCR. I will have to get the camber adjusted when I go to get an alignment after putting the wheels on.

No they are Cast. Im speaking with a vendor on here and hopefully purchase them. Im just trying to figure out my offsets. I believe i might be doing a 10/ 30 front and 10/20 rear

I need to replace two standard wheels on my 2006 GS430. I'm not looking for an upgrade, just want to replace with OEM. Any ideas on my cheapest option?

I like both those rims bit with the offsets you mentioned on the rear you will definitely need to do some fender mods.
