Be care of that offset of 20. You'll need to do some fender work in order to get those to fit.

when you get your fenders rolled flat, the action of the fender roller pushing the inside fender flat will "pull" the fender out.

in other words, it'll be a "natural" pull.

and yes, that's what you'll need in the front to make it work.

If you are interested in that wheel, you might also be interested in these :

The VARRSTOENs have quite a Lexus following, unlike the Rotas.

depends on the width.

but honestly, why do any fender work for a set of replica wheeels? not worth the effort. /$0.02.
