Yes.....the idea is to try and not stray too far from OE offset though...

Looking for ideas on wheels for a 99 GC8 which clear the front brembo conversion. Currently have GD wheels on but looking for something wider to fill out the guards. Thinking 17x8?
I like the multispoke look similar to OZ Racing style in gold. Can anyone share their experiences and pics. Cheers

I have 17x8 CR Kai that easily clear the Brembo front and rear conversion maintaining the 5 x 100 pattern. Relatively common wheel choice for the GC, but it does suit the body well IMO.

18x8.5 +45/43 is already fairly flush. +22 with a 235 tyre will need some fender work and possible camber adjustment ti fit nicely.
