They come in 18", 19" and 20", but I guess those are 18".
If so they're 18x8 ET30 or 18x9 ET44.

Yeah, I looked up the spec. The 44 offset would be nice, the 30 would be sucked in a little. Could add spacers. I guess they're only 3 or 4mm less than my current wheels though....

You know that lower ET means more aggressive, right?

Sorry, in my original post I got the 44 and 30 mixed up, not that it mattered, because I forgot about the 1" wide difference.

And I know, but you guys have to remember that the ET44 wheels are 9" wide, the ET30 wheels are only 8" wide.

That means there is only 1mm difference, with the 9" wide rims being sucked in by 1mm.

And these are winters. I have to ask the guy, but I would assume he has 8" wide wheels.

PS, my style 287 rims are 8.5" wide with ET39, they don't look sucked in. If they are 8", then yes, they would look sucked in by 44mm. LOL.

I guess there is different views of sucked in cause a 8.5 et39 is no where near flush in my books and to caved in brother. Man thats a smal wheel and high offset, for a winter wheel fine but fine but for summer thats not a good look
