i was wondering if anyone knew the offset for racingharts? i just bought my is and am going to put some 19's on it and lower it an inch or 2. the models i am looking at are either the cr 3 piece, c5 evo's, c2 evos or 3 piece, and the new cx multi piece. the lug pattern is right but i cant seem to find info on the offsets, and help would be much apprec. and if anyone has a pic of our car with any of these rims it would be awesome. thanks in advance and glad to be a member of this site! eric

This is from the wheel sticky.

front
width | offset | tires range (width)
x7 = 40 and up 215-225
x7.5 = 42 and up 215-235
x8 = 43 and up 215-235
x8.5 = 45 and up 215-225

rear
x7 = 40 and up 215-225
x7.5 = 40 and up 215-235
x8 = 42 and up 215-245
x8.5 = 45 and up 225-265 (255-265 requires rolling or shaving lip)
x9 = 49 and up 235-275 (MAY require rolling or shaving lip)
x9.5 = 52 and up 245-285 (MAY require rolling or shaving lip, 285 may require more modification)
x10 = 45 and up 255-315(requires pulling fender)

so if i get an 19x8 rim it would automaticly a 43 offset? no mater what brand?
No, it's not automatically a +43 offset. It's recommended that you get a +43 offset or higher. Lets say for example you wanted a particular rim and it comes in the following configuration:

19x8 +30
19x8 +35
19x8 +40
19x8 +45

You want to get the 19x8 +45. The other 3 rims I maded up have too low of an offset. Does that make sense?

I got a 19x8.5 in the front with a 51 offset
and a 19x9.5 in the rear with a 45 offset
On the rear it rubbed like crazy so i cut my rear fenders and
shaved 5mm off the rear offset.

Ben at wheels boutique hooked me up with this set up and it looks
tight as f%^k.

ill post pics when i get a chance. :D
