Default Rims offset question

Hey Romini, I read your posting on the rims for the SC430 but I have a question of using 20 x 9 in front and 20 x 10 in rear with an offset of +38? Would the this offset work?

the setup will work no problem. that's pretty conservative setup actually

Romini, if you dont mind what is your opinion of having a setup of 19's in the front and 20's in the rear with a staggered width setup up as well? Will 19's prevent scraping in the front lining?

i suggest against it, but that's me. i don't see the point of having staggered diameter at all, and i don't think it will look good. on top of that, to maintain same overall diamter, you will need to have fatter tires in the front, which makes the front wheels look even smaller (visual illusion).

just my 2 cents though

What does everyone think about these sizes:
Front: 20x8.5 with +20 offset
Rear: 20x10 with +20 offset
I am still unsure on what tire sizes to run so input is appreciated.

Default Stock Pebble Beach Wheels

I have an '07 Pebble beach with the 18" basket wheels. I want to keep the car stock but the gap betwen the rear wheels and fender makes for a very unagressive stance. Any thoughts ona solution for this. Could a slightly larger tire be used? Any thoughts. Surteco
