Default Vossens and In and On!!!!!

Just waiting for the tanabes.....the front needs a drop bad....I just hope with the DF's ot won't be too low in the back......or rub!!!! Though a lot of people are rolling with these on the site, you won't find many in Chicago so I am super happy and satisfied with them and their quality.

Looks awesome, any more pics of the offsets? Did you get the +45 offset for the rear wheels? What tire sizes?

http://www.tirerack.com/wheels/tech/...jsp?techid=101

The offset of a wheel is the distance from its hub mounting surface to the centerline of the wheel. The offset can be one of three types (measured in millimeters).*

Zero Offset
The hub mounting surface is even with the centerline of the wheel.

Positive
The hub mounting surface is toward the front or wheel side of the wheel. Positive offset wheels are generally found on front wheel drive cars and newer rear drive cars.

Negative
The hub mounting surface is toward the back or brake side of the wheels centerline. "Deep dish" wheels are typically a negative offset.

If the offset of the wheel is not correct for the car, the handling can be adversely affected. When the width of the wheel changes, the offset also changes numerically. If the offset were to stay the same while you added width, the additional width would be split evenly between the inside and outside. For most cars, this won't work correctly. We have test fitted thousands of different vehicles for proper fitment. Our extensive database allows our sales staff to offer you the perfect fit for your vehicle.

The tires are 275/30/20 for the rear and 245/35/20 for the front...I had a fresh set from my other wheels that were on my 2nd Gen.....wheels are a 1/2 inch wider all the way around than my last set but I do like the tire setup.....the offset in the rear are the +45.....as I said, waiting for the tanabe DF springs to come in, they will be here tuesday, hopefully on by Weds or Thurs......I will add some more pics later, but didn't even want to put them on before the springs but I couldn't help myself when I got the call they were in.........thanks guys
