Ok..Im seriously considering buying Work equip 03 in black with 15x8 rims with 2" deep lip.I just wanna know what offset I should get ? The car is a 1991 crx si.
I dont wanna order rims unless I know 100% that it will be ok.
I will be using 195/50 15 tires, so its gonna stretch a bit over the rim.
Right now I have 15x7 et 35 with no problems at all.
Here's some pics of a car with similar style wheels I want in 15x8.
But go ahead, don't believe me. Just remember, they won't be warrantied and you won't be able to sue the manufacturers if you try mounting them on unapproved rim sizes and you can't mount them or you get a blowout. It's your risk (and there is absolutely ZERO benefit to using wheels that are too wide for the tires)...
Is there such thing as a "bad seal" when it comes to tires or not?
If the tire doesn't seat properly at the bead when it's mounted, then yes, it's possible that there is a bad seal. And this could easily happen when a tire is stretched beyond its design specifications, onto a wheel that is wider than approved by the manufacturer.
just cause everyone in england and europe, and vw guys rock um that way doesn't mean it's beneficial
why don't you wanna run wider tires. typically more tread width can be a good thing.
and what kind of tires you going to run? spending $1600 plus dollars on rims and running some $40 195/50/15 . seems strange. plus with the rim hanging out so much you are going to be more likely to damage the rims.

So tell me - If his tire breaks the bead and he runs off the road, will YOU be paying for his damages?
But heck, you don't need to believe either one of us. Call up the customer service number for your tire's manufacturer, and ask them what's safe. Also ask them whether their tire warranty is applicable if the tire is mounted on rims wider than stated in their specification of approved rim widths. See what they say, and let us know. Then decide for yourself what to do.
What keeps a car on the road are the tires it rolls on. Tire manufactures would not say it's not safe if they didn't think it was not safe. As posted above, if anything, modify the fender rather than skimping on the tires (if 15x8 is a must).
This doesn't matter if the car is purely for show and will never be driven on the streets, in that case stretch away.
well now lets see a tire that that sits corectly on a 6.5 width wheel versus a tire that is going to stretched on a 8 inch wide wheel???? correct fitment for a 8 inch wide wheel would be 225/50r15 tire can you stretch a 195/50r15 tire yes do it all the time for vw boys at my shop is it correct no!!!
offset wise did you call works??????
