Why the larger offset on the smaller rim?

Why the larger offset on the smaller rim?
I'm hoping that will get me closer to flush in the front. I didn't want to much poke in the front and I was scared of that with the 9.75" wide rim. this offset will get me just about a half inch closer in than in the rear, which should be about right for the front.

Can somebody who knows a little better please correct me if I'm wrong?

Sounds like it could get you that flush look. If it doesn't. You could always get spacers.

If you search around a lot of members run 9.75 in the front and rear and even 10" and it looks awesome. As long as you like it

That is what I was thinking. If I get a higher offset I can always put in a spacer to make up for the gap. On the other hand, if I went with the lower offset I would be SOL if I wasn't happy.

Ordered wheels from Next Level Motoring, coils from JMAutoRacing, and eyelids from AutoCityImports.
Did NLM have the wheels in stock? I know I was looking at getting some XXR's and when I asked at discount tire the guy called XXR and said that all the wheels are on backorder for all sizes and colors...however that may have only been for the XXR 527's...So I was just wondering if you knew whether or not NLM had these wheels in stock?

End jealous rant.

As far as I know they are in stock, I'll definitely double check but there weren't any flags that the wheels were on backorder. I even used the coupon code and got $40 off the entire order. I cant recall what it was right off the top of my head and its not much but at least its something.




Sweet picks! Love that yellow!

Thanks! I was sort of sceptical about the yellow but I'm trying to embrace it haha. It really is an eye catcher.

Haha well from what I know it really isn't much of a difference aside from the cosmetics. Just makes any exhaust upgrades that much more difficult.

So I just talked to Next Level Motoring because the 2 8.75's I ordered actually were on backorder. Just changed the order to get 2 18x8.75 +20 instead. They say it should be here by Friday.
