Alright, so I really don't know much about this, I mean I understand the offset and such. But on an ET38 rim, what size spacer will make it about flush? Not looking for an kinda poke or anything really, car isn't low enough and tires aren't stretched really for that. The tires are 215/40/18. I was thinking somewhere around 20mm in the back and around 10 in the front to bring it to et28 and et18. but I have no idea how it will sit, I know my old 18" rims with et35 on a 235/40/18 sat to far in on the back for my likings and the front was just ok. Just trying to get some advice on the guys who know how it will look, cause I can't picture it in my head.. thanks

12mm for front and back? or you mean just the back? would I be better off just leaving the front at et38 and just running spacers in the back? I feel like the fronts should sit around 30 for some reason. someones gotta run this kinda setup.. buyin spacers today hopefully, wheres the responses?! ha

miro 279? Wha..? Also how much does the rim width factor in when trying to figure it out? say an 8.5" compared to an 8" or 7.5" wide rim. Would the 7.5" require a lower offset to sit the same as the 8.5"?

Oh I thought those were the rims you were looking at.

yes the width does matter a lot.

Oo, nah I already bought the rims. Just trying to figure this out now so I can hopefully get them within the same couple days.

The 18x8 milles that you were going to buy from me have an et of 20 all around and they were flush on all corners...no rub in the back but def rubbed in the front with non rolled fenders
