Default craziest offset

All right, time to show your stuff
I want to know what is the craziest offset that you know of AND have pictures to show that will fit under a GS.
I want to see the deepest dish you can find.
My brother is going to be in the market for some rims and he wants the Japanese VIP tuner look for his 2001 GS. In 18's or 19's in any color, but I need to know offsets so they can be ordered.
Thanks

that's not enough information yet. do you want the car to be drivable? coz' most of the jdm cars, they hvae very crazy offset, but they also tune the camber to be super negative to the wheels fit. but you can't even drive the car coz' of th ridiculous offset. i was talking to someone and he said some of the wheels 10" in the back and it's running +24 offset.

Well, it will still be driven daily, the suspension will only be lowered by an inch. I don't want to imply that we want the deepest dish you have seen, I have magazines that show 18x13's on the rear of GS's and LS's and that is not practical. I have asked wheel gurus far and wide about what offsets will fit and just about everyone came back with the 48-40 offset. Most won't go out on a limb and suggest something radical and if they do, they always say that it won't fit . I had this discussion when I ordered my wheels for my Supra. I never got a straight answer. I see the japanese magazine that have the offsets and the dishes on the wheels that are awesome and look like they are on daily driven cars but since I don't speak japanese and can't call the shops back there, it is hard to figure out the offsets. Of course we are willing to make compromises in the body(rolling or even cutting the fender) and suspension(too a degree, I don't want the tire to wear out after 1000 miles) to get something different to fit.

Then I think asking for the "craziest" is not exactly the correct criteria....

I am slammed on coilovers and am the guy Rominl was talking to with the +24 and 19x10 in the rear in my upcoming new wheels. They won't be here for another month, so I can't exactly tell you how they will fit or if my car will even be drivable. However, much against rominl's advice, I figure I will just set my camber to negative in order for these rear wheels to fit under my wheel arches. This is some of the minimum things you have to do if you are asking for "the craziest".

Now, on another note, trust me, those cars you see on the VIP mags are NOT driven like that on a daily basis. I perchanced some pics the other day of candid shots taken after the formal shots. The owners raised the cars on airbags and the cars were lifted 3-4 inches from its original pose. They look ridiculously silly with their stretched tires and superwide rear wheels. But that's how they drive them home and then baby-garage it.

I'm running a 19x10 with a 37 offset in the rear, I shaved the rear wheel well lips and it tucks in there with no problems. I might even have as much as 10mm to play with. I think the 24 offset is possible as long as the tires are super stretched and the wheel well lips and shaved paper thin....Just an opinion.

Here's another car running a 19x10 in the rear with +24 offset and 275/30 tires. No stretched paper thin tires here. And he's slammed!!!!!!!!!!





I could post bigger pics but it won't be 56k friendly anymore
