Hi,

The widths are fine. 8.5 will want a 225 and 10 will want a 265. As for offset I can't comment as my knowledge is on narrow body. Congrats on the new wheels.

Fronts will need a spacer so that fill the arches and don't hit the inner arch liners. You'll want to aim for ET52 or less. Meaning drop in a 5mm shim and you should be fine.

Sure thing. Forgive for stating what may be obvious but may as well for some that may be interested.

But I personally don't recommend running shims that are over 5mm, as this reduces the length of the wheel studs to a potentially unsafe length, as the wheel nuts will not screw down all the way.

The wheel studs on the front and back of our cars are 45mm, meaning that it is ok IMO to reduce them to a minimum of 40/ add a 5mm shim.

After which wheel adapters or longer studs are necessary. This in turn may effect the use of standard depth wheel nuts when the spacers are removed and a previous set of wheels are used - meaning that you'd want open ended nuts or deeper nuts. For the sake of smooth running and not 'hanging weight' on studs always use hub centric items.

I'm currently mucking about with this exact process and will do a write up shortly.

For sure, hubcentric is a given. I'll look out for your write up with anticipation

Currently have these on my narrow body 964. These have approximately 2k miles put on them total. All of the miles are basically to and from two different car shows so far this year.

I received them in like new condition and I will be selling them in much the same condition. You're more than welcome to contact Brian at Rotiform who I dealt with and verify as well.

I will be dismounting all the tires and taking detailed pictures of each wheel very soon. Thanks!

^^^ loving those wheels. The deeper section inner/outer barrels really works for me.

Who's the guy in the background taking a leak in the bushes?

That's what you did with the BTHs and turbo fans, right?

I'm looking to build something more aggressive this time around. Haven't picked out exactly what, yet.

crazy talk, never sold the fans. The BTH were cool on paper but I didnt care for them in the metal, especially since they were so similar to look of the fans.

last week it sounded like you were ready to sell your car, good luck with the new setup
