View Full Version : Wheel Fitment - 50 offset?

01-22-2006, 01:28 PM
I'm looking at a set of wheels that are 16" x108mm bolt pattern. The offset on them is 50. I know the stock rims have an offset around 38.

Will these rims fit without sticking out or hitting the wheel well? Spacing them would be ok too. I'd like them to look like a stock fit. My SC is not lowered.

With 50mm positive offset the wheels will set inside the fenders approx 1/2" more than stock. This isn't a problem for the fender but it may contact the spindle on the inside. Also they will look funny sitting in that far imo. I wouldn't use spacers that thick to move them out because you will probably have stud breakage problems. John

What is the width of the wheels you're looking at? You have to consider the width as well, when comparing offset numbers. If they are 7" like the stockers, then yes, they will be tucking under 1/2" more. Probably not enough to cause clearance issues, but they would likely look kind of goofy.
