i really dont understand why when ppl by rims, they dont just get the correct offsets for the look/tiresize/drop from the start... its one thing to put spacers on stock rims cuz you cant afford rims, but to put spacers on aftermarket rims... *sigh*

*sorry dont mean to single you out, theres alot of ppl here with spacers on aftermarket rims...*

Oh, I don't konw..... maybe the manufacturer doesn't make that particular wheel in the offset you want.

Nothing like a little more unsprung rotating mass for cosmetic improvement!

Actually, nothing would perform better, wouldn't it?
