The Silver 359's are 19x8.5 et37 and 19x9.5 et30

At the front, as they are the same offset, but the 359's are 1/2 inch wider, the easiest way to explain this is that it works from the centre of the wheel, this means it sits 1/4 inch in and 1/4 inch out. this means it sits 6mm (1/4 inch) further out at the front.

On the rear, being 1/2 inch again wider, this again sits out 6mm more, and as the offset is 9mm lower, that = 6+9 = 15mm further out at the rear.

The Black 359's, being et40, will sit 3mm futer out at the front and 5mm further out at the rear. Sorry if that is a little confusing.

thats not confusing that has now stopped me being confused and now i actually no what im looking at and can start workin out what i can sit haha does the lower offset give more of a concave look? and if they dont sit far enough out you can always fit spacers cant i

i prefer the black ones on the website cause they have the centres cut out. would they then fit same center caps that i have?

so my tyres i have on the car now 235 and 255 would fit them rims with abit of stretch??

sorry for all the questions but its all making sense
