those were probably mustang wheels, which usually means they have the wrong offset too.

at some point it becomes easier to look at back spacing. (as opposed to offset)

look for 5.5" to 6" backspacing. if you need spacers, then a 6.5" backspacing would work.

however these are rare wheels, as no car has that fitment naturally.

xxMichaelAnthony Eventually lowering or eventually stancing? If you're just lowering I wouldnt go over a 7.5-8 wide depending on the offset. Stance/fitment is a whole different ball game..

mok4200 eventually yes @xxmichael

xxMichaelAnthony Are you just lowering or stancing?

Barrow88 Those adapters wouldnt work anyway as they go from:

Vehicle: 4x4.5 / 4x114.3 or 4x100
to
Wheel: 4x4.25 / 4x108

you would need the opposite going from the 4x108 to the 4x114.3 or 4x100

xxMichaelAnthony The 3 I linked to above are all 10 spoke as well. XXR does not make that wheel in an offset that will work, with an adapter, for our cars.

mok4200 well i like them because they have a good amount of spokes and kind of go in towards the rotor, idk i just really like em lol

xxMichaelAnthony Not worth the hassle when there are wheels in the same style available that are made to fit our cars.

Buickboy even with +25 offset wheels that spacer will kill you (its 1inch = 25.4mm)

use this to figure out a good fitment: http://www.rimsntires.com/specs.jsp


40mm offset on a 16x7 is a safe fit with a 205/50 while still looking aggressive. a 16x8.25 at 0 offset will stick out a lot. There is a happy medium between the two if you dont mind fender rolling/ pulling/ stretched tires and a lot of comber. Hopefully someone will chime in with specs for that, or just search
