    Default new alloys one different offset

    bought a set off team dynamics 18 inch with offset ET45 checked them and one has a offset of 35 phoned company i bought them of and it was the last ones in stock, now i like them and want to keep them, i know the wheel with et35 will stick out more than the rest, can i solve this by putting 10mm spacers on the other 3 wheels, need some info if i am going down the right road, or is there something else i can do.

    Shipping shouldn't be at your cost if they have made the mistake. I'd get them sent back and get the right one,

    Your location states you live in Northern Ireland? Wouldn't the car drive odd with 3 spacers? You're crazy if you settle for a mix match of new wheels?

    will wait and see what the company says, if they can change the odd wheel for the same offset as the rest fine, if not looking money back, just thought the spacers would build the wheels out to compensate for the odd offset of et35, they must have been chanceing there arm that i would not notice the differance in the wheels.
