215s? If you order those, they are going to come with practically no dish. Just a small polished lip.

huh? if low offset like 0-12 shouldn't there be a lot of dish? I thought high offset = no dish

am i on crack?

hm, I could be wrong. I have 40mm offset on my RX7 and the wheels I got came with very little dish. I was expecting that on there though, and they still look sick.

Now that I think of it, it would probably have equivalent dish to an Eiker E1. Still fighting off a cold, so my judgment is probably not the best :-P

yeah as you reduce the offset, you move the wheel out, then you can add more dish to keep the backspacing correct.

I did just sort of make that up, but I think it's right....

edit// and a volvo 240 can rock really low offset depending on how much you want to push out the fenders. Like rob's 9.5inch et0 rears (iirc)

Not really. They look like my wheels. Just get a wheel brush and a bottle of wheel cleaner and wait no longer than a month between cleanings.

They are expensive, but forged & allow you to semi-custom build your wheels including size of lip & finishes.
Available in 17x7 17x8 & 17x10

I don't like cleaning bare aluminum wheels...got Coddington's on my truck and Fikse 3 piece on another car.....my powerder coated Volans and Cobra R rims win hands down when it comes to cleaning :)

The dish has everything to do with the design of the wheel. It's much easier to have more dish when you have a low offset vs. a high one. ie. et10 could have more dish than et42.

Just imagine the spokes are flush to the face and the hub of the wheel goes to meet the car in the middle of the wheel=et0 but with no dish. now imagine the spokes right in the middle of the wheel with no extra hub material leaving dish and still a et0

It's a rough 20 sec picture but these are both an example of et0(basically) wheels. One with dish the other without.

Both the front and rear are FWD offset wheels.
