    Default Will et45 fit?

    Have the chance of a set of 19" Vxr alloys. Not sure what offset is until view tomorrow. Will et45 fit or is et43 limit? Do intend to eventually lower 45 mm. Thanks for help.

    Don't know but The wheels will sit bit too far into the arches. 19" VXR? I didn't think they were ET45. I'd imagine ET45 may scrape the wheel arch lining.

    They are ronal diamond cut Vxr alloys off a Astra Vxr. So post 07 ( i believe) which when I have looked at others for sale seem to be et45 but seller thinks et43 but not checked. If et43 will buy them as am pretty sure fit no probs but not sure about et45.

    They will be 43... But if there where 45 its only 2mm, catch inner arch liner on full lock only, but most 19"a do anyway...

    Would 10mm spacers compensate for the offset?

    ET38 x 8"wide rims on eibachs fit no problem. No rubbidge anywhere, so ET45 will be no problem at all.

    Edit, sorry, I didnt realise you ment the inside of the arch, I.e. the shock absorber side of the rim. I'm not sure how much space there is there?

    Leemarksmith you were spot on, alloys et43. They were also cracked so the search continues. Thinking maybe go for 18s as roads not great by me and most 2nd hand 19s are either cracked or repaired.
