IMHO, the offset doesn't really matter as much as whether the inside of the rims clear the calipers or not. It will vary from wheel to wheel with the same offsets.

not my cup of tea, but those look fantastic! the black and chrome on both the car and the wheels is beautiful! might look better with a little less wheel(smaller dia. and a bit less "spoke")

Hey Guys.. I just found out what rims they are... they are called the Arelli Geneva... unfortunately they only come in 20's or above... so they won't fit well.. they can fit if you do some modifications.. but as far as just inching up.. that won't work... so if you were going to go with bigger rims... what size would you go with??.. I was thinking 17's for the comfort and ride.. but then again I think 18's would look awesome too.. but there would definitely be so lost ride comfort.. not to mention surface noise... I guess 17's would be the better choice huh... well... I would still like to hear you alls opinion on the matter...

I am looking very hard for some nice 19s...I read somewhere that I should still be fine if I do the bilstein/H&r upgrade.

What style are you looking for??.. Because I just found a website that has real nice prices!!.. www.performanceplustire.com/
I would check there.. they personally I like the Forte Miami F15 18"s.. I have a black W8 as you can see in my signature.. and think that black with brushed metal look would look awesome!!.. In my opinion... to each his own.. but anyhow.. as I was saying check there they have package deals so you can also choose what tires you want ... for the 18" Forte's and tires I can pick that up starting at $828.00 !! That's under a $1,000.00 .. so to me that's pretty good... well.. anyhow.. once again.. just throwing out an option to you... they have 19's too...
