    I have read this over and over and i am still confused about the offset. I have read other things concerning offset aswell. Can someone help me?

    I want to go to a larger size rim & tire i plan on going from the stock 235/55-16's to different front & rear sizes : F= 255/35-19 R= 305/30-19

    yes i am aware the back wheels & tires are expensize at that size and yes i am aware that the back tires will now remain rear only tires. Basically what i don't want is that redneck look with the wide rear tires. I have seen many 3rd gen's with wide rear wheels & tires just hanging out of the wheel wells several inches. It looks like crap i want as wide as possible on the rear without it hanging out. Can someone give me some info on this offest please

    How wide of a wheel are you planning to run with that 305?

    For example, if you buy an 11" wide wheel with a 0 offset, you are going to have a 6" backspace. This is because an 11" wide wheel is overall 12" wide and a 0 offset is right in the middle; 6" to the back, 6" to the front.



    Say your wheel has a +25 offset (25mm), that means your backspace is going to move 1" (25.4mm=1") towards the front of the wheel, thus increasing your backspace to 7".

    A -25 offset would decrease the backspace an inch to 5".

    You just have to measure to see what fits.

    Shouldn't be too much of a problem.

    if you mean curb rash or pits, yes. i had to clean up the vette wheel i had. the curb rash you have to file down the rash and sand paper the pits the best you can. its not goig to look like new but you can certainly removed obvious rash.

    for the finish it really depends on the type of wheel. polish aluminum is easy to polish back out. take a high grit sandpaper and smooth the suface and get a polishing wheel and metal polish compound and polish away until you are satisfied.

    coated aluminum wheel are hard to make look the same. you are probably better off repainting them or even plastidip. just depends on the condition of the wheels and the goal you are looking to have.
