Default Need help with 19's!!

I am looking to get these rims in Chrome. They are 19 X 9.5 . Will these fit.. I know we need an offset between 45 and 50 for our cars. But is the depth (9.5) too much for the front? back?.. I am more concerned about the front..

Thanks
Theo

Cool help with 19's

Theo, the rims look nice. But be careful with Zenetti's. Nazty97 started a thread not too long ago about the troubles he was having with Zenetti 19's cracking very easily. Read up on that thread and talk to Nazty97 before you invest this amount of money. Good luck.

Yep. Those are the rims Nazty had. He had 18's and I believe he broke 2. Be prepared to have a harder time with 19's. A bigger wheel with a smaller tire will place greater strain on the wheel. If you insist on these wheels, do a staggered set up. 8.5 up front and 9.5 in the rear.

Thumbs up Thanks

Thanks, Guys....

I appreciate your quick replies and warning about the Zenettis.. I guess I will contiue my search for some nice 19's.. Is 8.5 the widest that can go on the front?

Thanks again.
Theo

If you were going with custom made wheels like I-forged or HRE you probably could but the mass produced wheels like Zenetti have fewer offset options. I'd go 8.5 just to be safe.
