Wrong offset challenge...

Postby Turtle-Dude » Thu Oct 04, 2007 12:11 pm

For whatever reason, I'm a nut. Almost every car I'm around I notice the little things...like wheel offset. So, I've done a mental poll and figured out which car is MOST likely to have the wrong offset wheels. :rofl:

Here is my nomination for worst offender:

Tell us your observations, which car do you see incorrect wheels on most?

After we get a few different cars nominated, I'll start a vote or something so we can mark how many of each we see.

I agree, but I can't find a picture of the ones that have the offset problem the other direction - you know, the ones with the itty bitty Dayton triple golds pokin' out 8" and the diagnolly mounted chrome mudflaps and ish?

My WRX has a shitty offset for stock wheels. My fenders stick out so much farther than the wheels. It looks retarded.

Ouch is right. I almost ran into the same problem when I did my coils. Luckily, I had 5mm spacers that moved from the rear so I was able to drive it home, and picked up some 7mm for a little extra clearance. The rears were replaced with 12mm's to round things out.
