Haha yep the guy was an ass he would only take a wire transfer no paypal I took the chance I didn't think he would send them all I got was a text that said shipped.. Then noth after I called him 3 times! After I look at it more it might stick out a bit. What are the offsets of these bs the stock wheels? Hre is 10mins down the road I bet the could machine the correct offset for me

You are looking for trouble aren't you?

Think about this, machine the mounting flange of the wheel and just see how thin it now is. Want to pull the lugnuts thru the wheel.

stock i think rear was around +50 or so. i wouldnt modify them being magnesium, that material has a bad rep for street wheels, i dont think you want the mount surface any thiner either, they are a wheel made to the minimum to be light weight

You guys are right. I won't dick with them. I'll run them as is. They will look good either way

Is the offset # cast into the wheel?

Not knowing exactly what you bought. the magnesium BBS wheels that I've seen mentioned were made with offsets for the wider Comp Coupe body. I do know of someone that is running a similar wheel on a Gen 2. There are some folks that like that look. All kinds of tastes in wheel fitment out there.

No offset cast into the wheels. They are off a comp coupe and to be honest I dont really mind the look that much. It dosnt look that bad and if it does stick out it not that noticeable
