Default What rim offset would be ideal with Spoon coilovers?

Just wish to know what type/brand of wheels have you used with Spoon N1 coilovers? This is mostly concerned with rim offset.

Thanks

Anyone that has used this suspension setup before? Just want to know the offset of your rims. Mine is 14" +37 and I think it is too far out.

Thanks

What do the struts have to do with your wheel's offset?

since you want to waste money on spoon coilovers, get the most expensive uber-jdm wheels you can find. they will clear because like the spoon coils, they are overpriced and overrated. so they have to work together.

Reason being that my current +37 offset are flush with the fenders and I think with short storke suspension, the tires could very well touch the fenders during cornering or braking.

The obvious answer will to go with +45 or something in that range, but what wheel spec? I might go to 15" wheels, and hoping to use 7 inch wide wheels.

Thanks

Sorry, this thread wasn't meant to show off or anything, I have searched and all the threads were mostly comparison between brands.

Thanks
