Cheers Smitty :)

a bit of everything will come into what you're asking...

Rim width, rim design, back spacing and offset... Good luck finding it... Next to impossible in an e series car... There really is not much as far as neutral offset wheels go these days... No matter which country you buy from...

Only way you might get it is to have billet wheel made to whatever you'd fancy... But at something which may cost thousands per wheel, I would think this isn't an option for you?

Just don't buy anything cheap and nasty and unknown yeah? All you'll do is kill somebody...

Cheers,
Tim

It's nowherr near impossible to get wheels that fit E Series. It's a case of owners being to tight/poor to spend big monry on wheels. Hell, my set in the above post were $2k.

Definitely noy the case. My wheels are inside guards, running negative offsets all round. Armchair experts who have no real world experience are the worst.

My rears are inside the guards. Rims by about 5mm and due to 235's stretched, tyres clear by 15mm. Doean't matter if it is 1mm or 20. Clearing is clearing.
