Is there still a **********s vendor on these forums?

I remember a long time ago I bought something from them on here but I can't seem to find them.

Anyway I wanted to buy these wheels from them http://www.**********s.com/VMR-VB3-C...ack-Wheels.htm
but I have a question about what offset I should choose. I dont know what the difference between ET20 and ET40 or 5x120 and 5x112
Can someone help me out

I have 225/35/18 and 255/35/18 tires that I would use on the new wheels

**********s was banned for some reason. The bolt pattern you need is 5x120. If you are looking for a bolt on fitment you want 8.5et40 up front and 9.5et33 in the rear. You can use a 10mm spacer up front if you want.

Edit-for the 310's you'd want 8.5et35 up front 9.5 et33 in the rear.

You can also go with a more aggressive fitment if you want. You would have to roll your rear fenders.

I found the 310s on ebay and it says
Wheels Width: 8.5 Front and 9.5 Rear

Bolt pattern: 5x120

Offsets: ET.35 Front & ET.38 Rear

So I'm guessing they wouldn't fit because the rear ET is too big?

They would fit but they aren't made in those offsets. I would definitely recommend that you get them from **********s or another vender instead of eBay.


Edit- I was actually looking at 19" sizes for 18" it would be 8et35 and 9et38 which isn't going to be flush but it will fit.
