The right offset

The right offset of rims can really transform how your car looks and sits on the road.

Take this BNR34 for instance. It's sitting on Advan RS Gun Metallic Grey 19"x10jj +15 offset. Hell'a flushed isn't it?
On top of that, this bloke has added some spacers to make them sit further out. They look so goooodddd....

Pretty flush and I can't see any sign off rubbing. Australian cars judging from the plates :).

I'm trying to achieve something similar with my HSV at the moment. Might just opt for 20s instead.

It looked just a tad bit jutting out from the wheel arch. Not a fan of spacers here.

Loki,
Yup. Ozzy car. Ooh, 20's. Awesome.

Eu Jin,
Neither am I. I don't recommend spacers.

The car came with 19s, so I think it would probably look a tad bit better with 20s. Plus its black, so theres that 'gangsta' element :P.

I am assuming you guys aren't into spacers because of safety issues and wanting to minimize points of failure.

Exactly Loki. :)

You want the wheels to look right, get the right specs; thus eliminating the need for spacers.

What offset/rim size/series tyres is your car? Look good.

Johnny_9,
I'm running 19" x 9.5jj +12 offset TE37's wrapped with 275/30/29 Pirelli P Zero Rosso's.

Leo, is that stock suspension height or is it dropped a bit?

The +12 offset, how much more is that compared to stock.

Yes, I completely agree; the word is "transform"...This is obviously something every serious GTR owner must study.

Johnny_9,
On my car or the car? The S-Tune suspension drops the ride height. I don't know how much lower.

On the stock rims, it's 18" x 9jj +30 offset.

Planning to get a new set of wheels?
