Winner! although its not painted or anything janky, I had the faces made to be mounted between the outer and inner barrels to make it a sandwich mount wheel like other Work wheels are

Apparently the chart I used for my offset calculations were wrong. I just went through the rims and remeasured everything and did the math manually. The wheels are actually 18x11.5+19 in the front and 18x12-17 in the rear


I may have to abandon ship with these wheels..... anyone want some VS-XX

i like it!!!, i think there is to much side wall though.. the stretch dosnt look so dramatic in the rear at all, i think my 265/30 on a 11 had way more stretch..

i think this is a nice set up with a crazy width and offset.. not everyone is into "stance" or "hellaflush" but the ones who are will enjoy this set up.. put a smaller tire on it like the works.. and lower it and i think it will be money!!

Thanks man. That's actually the plan right now, but my tire guy wasn't in on Friday for me to try anything new yet. But I'm still having the feeling I won't be able to get that rear to fit

That's cool, but I never said the front had max camber. The rears are the ones that are maxed out, if I can get more camber in the rear I'd be in business.

Anyone have any tricks to get more camber in the rear?
