    Default Urgent Offset help !!

    Hi,

    need to replace my 19" snowflakes as one is cracked and the others need refurb, they are 8x19, 5x110 et43 had this problem for a couple of wks and it's driving me mad.

    Does the lower offset mean it's pushed out further from the hub and misses the front calipers as the wheels I ordered are 8x18" , 5x110 and offset et45 and are touching the front caliper !! , on my Sig v6 2.8t (think the front calipers are slightly bigger than the rear) although not sure !!

    Any help greatly appreciated,

    Cheers

    Your gonna need spacers and longer bolts buddy, either that or take the wheels back. The calipers on yours will be the 314's so yeah a good bit bigger than the rear

    Hi,

    thanks for the info John just returned the wheels today and ordered a different set with a bigger offset so hopefully this will cure it, will let you know about the snowflakes when I get this sorted.

    Thanks again,
