    Looking for feedback/ input.
    Will 38mm offsets on 8.5 and 9.5 wheels fit decently? I believe the stock 19's are 30mm front/45mm rear On the RWD..I think the stock 19's are 19x8/8.5. I believe this will slightly suck the front wheels in and push the rear out. The stock rear wheels could probably use a 10mm spacer to sit more flush anyways. I would be reusing my stock tires and buying new TPMS valve stems to swap the sensors over. Aluminum 67.1mm-74.1mm hub centric rings are less than $10 a set so that's not a big deal. I think these would look perfect on my 2019 Ceramic Silver GT1 RWD.. thoughts?

    TireRack to put together a set with 32mm front and 38mm rear offsets. $868 shipped with the hub centric rings and lug nuts. Hmmm. That would fit much better.

    They're imho the best wheels I've seen to date, exactly what I would like. I'm looking for gloss black machines finish as well.

    Yeah these really caught my eye. They fit the style of the Stinger especially with my Ceramic Silver. Just looking for feedback on the offset options.

    I guess it should work good.

    I was looking on a german wheel webside and it says this

    upload_2019-1-10_9-41-17.png
    VA= Front
    HA= Rear
    ET= Offset

    Every wheel that I saw had Offset 35 in the front but I'm in Germany and they are extra picky here so :thumbup:

    These will work but you’ll probably want to run a spacer up front. My wheels are 19x8.5 front +35
    19x9.5 rear +35

    I’m lowered and will be adding a 5mm spacer up front to make them flush. Rears are perfect. Photo is before lowering.

    FYI the stock wheels are not as wide as you referenced. They’re 19x8 front and 8.5 rear.

    If it were me I’d look for something with a more aggressive offset. Have you checked out Niche or Stance?

    Missed this post. These offsets are better. A 5mm spacer in the rear would give you a nice stance.

    Why would I need a 5mm spacer out back if the wheels are wider and 7mm farther out than the stock rear setup?

    Cosmetics. If you aren’t lowered you might not. The stock offsets you posted aren’t accurate. Rear is also +34. It’s just a wider wheel.

    Are you 100% on that for RWD models?

    The 9.5 +38 will be fine on the back. It’s only 3mm off what I’m running and mine are perfectly flush. If you lower it and are picky you may want a 5mm spacer to make them more aggressive.

    Nice! Got a pics of it lowered? And what wheels is that? Looking for a flush look too. But don't want any spacer with it cause it's not advisable, just get the right offset is way to go.

    The offset for the front are a bit on the high side. Wary of clearance of the caliper. Rear offset is fine.

    front will get you 10mm closer to strut and 2mm out on lip of wheel, rear will get you 5mm closer to strut and 21mm out on lip of wheel roughly if I'm right, have you considered a square setup? only reason I say is your tire buying would be easier also youd be able to rotate tires helping with tire life just a thought

    I'm most likely going to do a square setup in spring I hate how the front tire has a stretch to it don't know why they did that but I think its a good option if you find the correct offset and width so everything clears

    No, not really. I installed them in November and put the car in winter storage so won’t have any until spring.

    Wheels are Niche Vosso M204 in anthracite
