Hey guys,

I'm looking for 18" rims and came across this one deal where some guy is selling Gunmetal Volks Te37 18x7.5 5x114.3 but the offset is +48mm. I read somewhere that our car is suppose to be +40mm. Is there some way I can make it fit or not worth the trouble? I really would like to try to make it work if possible. I have it lowered 1" all around with Eibachs and my car is graphite pearl. Thanks for any suggestions and opinions.

that offset should be ok, it will be tucked into the fenderwells pretty good. If you want to push it out more then you could just add a 5mm spacer.

When you have passengers in the back seats..do you find any rubbing on the fenderwall? Hey, how dropped is that IS300?

- no, no rubbing... only when doing u-turns or turns that require the wheel to be turned all the way...

Okay, I settled for the Volks TE37 Gunmetal. Do you think it'll look MOST (excuse the bad grammar) hot with a Graphite Pearl IS300 or a different color?
