Just piggybacking on the info in this thread, but you guys are mentioning 20mm spacers for his 50mm offset wheel, or even for the stock, which would effectively mean 30mm offset or 28mm for stockers. I saw a guy post up his stock wheels with 20mm spacers and it looked great. With a 35mm, I thought I was still pretty safe. Let me know if I'm not understanding this all correctly. My last few wheels were all custom forged wheels with all the specs done by the wheel shop, with my only input was making it flush and hub centric.+35 was flush on the gen 1 cars with wider rims. On these cars it seems like that offset will poke quite a lot requiring some pretty serious camber. However on a a small 7.5" rim with stock(ish) size tire it might be ok. I tend to favor going on the high end of the offset spectrum with the thinking, if the wheel sits too far in I can easily add spacers. Go too low and you either have to spend more cash on suspension to make them look and function well, or sell them and try again.
So basically just get something in the 40 range, add spacers as needed?I have had both cars, 1st gen and 2nd all the +35 offsets have been people with aftermarket coil-overs, stock suspension it will rub.If your running after market coils, cool, rock that camber.
7.5-8" width with 225 width tire is my preferred tire size. I'm not adverse to the idea of coilovers in the future, in fact it's more likely than not since I want to slightly lower the car to help close the wheel gap.It depends on the rim width and tire size. A +35 offset on a 9.5" wheel and a 255 tire is going be be much harder to fit than a 7.5" wheel on a 215 tire.
