    Vehicle : Insignia VX-line RED Tourer

    Trim : No, over weight!

    Engine : Flux Core Capacitor

    Year : 1 A.D

    Mileage : Rising

    Default

    I think the offset should be 45mm or below.
    Someone will correct me if i'm wrong. If they were supplied wrong, then your within your rights for them to be replaced with a correct set.
    Take no **** - give em hell !!! Nuff said !


    Have consideration for the deaf, if you're gunna fart, make it smell !

    I would leave them to be honest. It will probably handle better on ET47 than ET38.

    If in doubt, get a set of 4mm wheel spacers, which are perfectly safe and this will reduce them to ET43.

    That would work

    My old vec handled great on et 35 ...And they look much better as they will fill the arches out ...Gt Stars and Evo Stars are 35 so recommended by VX as well ...

    while i don't disagree with fitting spacers, make sure you fit longer bolts as well, as you'll be running on 4mm less thread in the hub..and that isn't good at all.... they only run into the hub about 15mm anyway so to lose 4mm..


    If it was my money thou, i'd send them back and get the proper ET as anything else is just making up for their error in my book..
