Default Off-set questions

09' isf with stock wheels. Stock wheels are F- 19x8 +45, R- 19x9 +55

I'm running 15mm spacers up front, 20mm spacers in rear (bought car like this, H&R with longer wheel bolt studs)

What would my current offset be?
Would I subtract or add the wheel spacer thickness?

In the market for a nice set of aftermarket wheels, most that I've seen don't have the high offset recommended for the F. I don't want to remove the extended studs / spacers if I don't have too.

What would be a good offset, F&R on an aftermarket set that I could run with with the spacers and extended bolts? Ideally the total offset would be close to the recommended offset.


Thanks in advance for any solid advice.

Your current offsets are +30 front and +35 rear, you subtract the spacer from a positive offset wheel...

Those are very popular offsets, only reason you'd need to remove spacers is if you also wanted wider wheels...

Thanks for the response mitsuguy.

So if I go aftermarket, keep the spacers / extended studs, I'd need a similar to stock offset for my aftermarket wheels so to maintain my current stance.

If I remove the spacers then a +30 F and +35 R offset will give me the same stance.

If this is correct then my options on preowned wheels opens up quite a bit. Just have to remove the spacers and extended studs.
