Default I'm Not Too Good With Offsets..

No matter how much I read and try to understand, it's just not logical to me. I want you guys to help me if possible. I have a lot of different types of rims I like. I want to post the specs and links and see if you guys tell me if they fit, rub, need fenders rolled, etc. Thnks guys!

Avant Garde Rims

19x9.5 F +20
19x11 R +18

I think those won't fit.

370z replicas?

20x8.5 F +20
20x10 R +25

I have no idea if these fit...

TSW Nurburgring

20x8.5 +20 Front

20x10.5 +25 Rear

Again, not sure..

I'll just ask for those. Feel like a burden asking more.. Thanks guys in advance...

Default Re: I'm Not Too Good With Offsets..

If I remember correctly Maximas use higher offsets but I could be mistaken. On my 350z I have a +20 offset which is lowish for Z's so I'm pretty sure you need something around the 35 range but again I'm on the same boat as you I don't really understand offsets fully but I do understand some, I'm sure someone will chime in

I dont think any of those will fit. I think the least amount of offset will be +30 especially in the rear. You might get away with a +25 in the front though.

Default Re: I'm Not Too Good With Offsets..

All of them are going to rub even if you roll the fenders @hero is running 20x10.5 +25 all around but is on coilovers.

For the first set which is also my number one choice and what I was going to get. The sizes you listed will not work but they have these in 20X9 +30 & 20x10 +40 which will work.

The last set also won't work in those offsets but they also come in these sizes which will work 20x8.5 +40 & 20x10 +40

Avant Garde Rims

I think those won't fit.

Rear specs are normally too aggressive, will need fenders shaved (possibly a slight pull), rear bumper mount tab shaved, stretched tires, and a lot of negative camber

370z replicas?

20x8.5 F +20
20x10 R +25

I have no idea if these fit...

Those can fit if you roll the rear fenders, shave down the rear bumper mount tab, and run stretched tires.

TSW Nurburgring

20x8.5 +20 Front

20x10.5 +25 Rear

Again, not sure..

Close to what I'm running. Rolled rear fenders, shaved bumper mount tab, slightly stretched tire, a bit of negative camber.

I'll just ask for those. Feel like a burden asking more.. Thanks guys in advance...
Responses in red. You also have to consider how low you want to be. In my opinion, aggressive wheel setups and any sort of stretched tire without a good enough drop looks bad (and not bad meaning good). If you don't want to stretch tires and are looking to go staggered, stick to higher offsets for wide wheels.

Someone correct me if Im wrong but,

your stock wheels are 7.5 +40 so if you get 9.5 +20 they will stick out 2" and 20mm farther than stock

I pretty sure thats how it works

Thanks so much 6th gen fam!

They will stick out 45mm more than stock. First you divide the difference between the wheel widths in half since the wheel grows both ways inside and outside, so 9.5" - 7.5" = 2", divided in half is 1", which is 25.4mm. Then you change the offset from +40 to +20, so the barrel of the wheel moves outward 20mm, so that's a total of 45.4mm.

Those should fit okay, you'll probably have to at least trim the rear fender liner that covers the rear bumper mount tab, dependent on your tire sizes.

I seriously started lol'ing when I got to the end of your post. I'm a little sad the A's were eliminated since everyone up here was hoping for another Battle of the Bay, but I got over it after about 2 minutes, +/- 5 minutes.
