Default Offset Question

Ok so i understand that offset is the distance from the center of the wheel to the hub. Im having a hard time figuring out if i want to go +38 or +43 on my 19 x 8.5R and 19 x 9.5F.

1. Does offset affect the deepeness of the rim? or is that only related to tire width?

2. Is their a visual diff in the wheel between the two offset?

3. Does lower offset number mean the wheel is pushed out towards the fender more? or is it the higher one?

I want a wide lip look wihtout having to push the fenders out. should i go with 38 or 43?

ive read conflicting posts about this topic. Please help

I think it depend on what kind of dish that rims is. So you have to ask before you buy it....

Default question about the Volk Gt-s wheels

hey guys i am really feeling the Volk GT-S wheels for my black IS350 but i hardly know anything about wheels. what kinda offset and measurements am i suppose to be getting? i just want the back wheels to have like a big lip maybe 3"? i want the 19" setup.. if anyone had these put on their car can you maybe post a pic and show me the measurements and if they cause any rubbing issues. one last question what color looks nice on a black IS? gunmetal or hyper silver?

I would say 19x8.5 29offset with a 235/35 and 19x10.5 with a 42offset 265/30 You can actually go more aggressive if you want to. Look for MrMark his setup is sick!

I think trinityhk has the best set up Ive seen. I almost bought his wheels but my wallet wasn't that deep

This is probably the cleanest setup for these GT-S wheels.

......That red BBK looks sick too.

if i recall correctly, i don't think these wheels are tpms compatible since they are multi-piece wheels..
