Default Varrstoen wheel es2.2.2 (te37 reps) help

I'm planning on getting the varrstoen wheel in 19x9.5/10.5 +22 polish. I was wondering who has them on their car with ls400 brakes. Did you need spacers and if so how thick? I don't want to go with +12 and +15 cause I don't want them to stick out too much. I read the thread about the wheels and some people said yes it will without spacers some say you need spacer. Just want something concrete. Thanks for the input.

There is an entire thread on Varrstoen wheels and brake clearances. Search "varrstoen" in the search bar.

Yea I read all like 17 pages of that thread. I know they say for sure
Tt brakes don't work. But for ls400 brakes one person says it does and another says it does work for a +22 offset. They weren't specific on which style. I couldn't figure out a definite answer from the thread. I want the varrstoen wheels to work cause they come polished and I just polished my ls400 calipers. See how they look together.

I was told the other day that a 9.5" wheel up front with a +13 offset cleared LS brakes. I think you'll be fine.

Decided on tt wheels until I save up enough after turbo to get real wheels like some ccw classic with the right offset. +12 poke out too much for me.

Dont use spacers, just get a high disc face and a lower offset. I had varrstoen wheels on my car for a good 2 months 19x9.5 and 10.5 et 0 all around. I say get that spec, roll and a lil pull outback and your sitting nice. look for JUSTCHILL thread and you can see them on his car!
