    Whats the offset of the wheels?
    running 175's would not make a difference b/c their only .4 inches thinner. If your tires are stickin out they may hit the fenders when you bottom out so see if you can put enough weight on the car to see if they will hit when the car bottoms out. It will probably will look better any ways with your fenders rolled if your wheels are stikkin out. Some reputation points would be nice :)

    0 offset does not seem right b/c if they have a big lip they should have positive offset. It would be nice if you gave me some rep points is what i mean :)

    you got that backwards...

    anyways.. w/ a 0 offset you'll need to add some camber to get it to tuck and roll the fenders possibly

    Honda wheels have around +40mm offset so you may or may not have a problem with +12mm offset which is around an inch difference. The 175mm tires actually may help.

    I know what im talking about eg6sir:) Some rep points for me would be cool!

    sure.. but it'll be negative if you beg for it.. :D ... so, if you still want that rep.. i can give it to you or you can forget about it..

    anyways, you're wrong still.. big lips will usually have a negative offset or a low positive offset

    please explain why civic wheels have around +40mm offset? He is getting +12mm offset which means the mounting surface is 12mm to the outside of the centerline which means they will stick out more. What part does not make sense?

    last time i checked Civic wheels didnt have a big lip.. hell, they dont have any lip

    take a gander at this .. notice the wider the rim, the less chance that it'll be a positive offset wheel.. thats because wide wheels have a bigger lip usually

    The big lip has nothing to do with offset. It all depends on the mounting surface and were it is compared to the centerline of the wheel.

    And that chart you have is backspace which is a different measurment than offset. Backspace is measuring the back edge of the wheel compared to the mounting surface.

    Please do some research then you will see. I really should have at leas 100 rep points by now.

    And to the OP who cares, get some flare if need be, my friend is tucking a set of Axis OG Sans with the 3 inch lip and fender flares on his EK, looks sick.

    And you don't change camber to fix offset eg6sir. If you do your gunna have change your front tires at least twice as much.

    He said camber to get them to tuck, like the euro guys do.

    Camber, Caster, Tow. If your talking about that camber than he will be running on the insides of his tires( same thing happens when lowering cars) and the inside of the tire will wear out much quicker. It also will affect stearing if done to much. If thats what your talkin bout. sorry if its a different camber than what you are talkin about.

    first off... that chart shows offset.. in order to know what your offset is you need to know what the backspace is... you're the one that needs to do some research

    it isnt the camber that wears out the tires quickly.. its the toe ..

    anyways.... go back to school, learn to read.. then you can come here and try to argue w/ me



    thank you... at least some of our members know how to read..
