Well the Tezza is due in very soon so im on the look out for new rims. Was thinking maybe 18"' in white maybe some SSR alloys. I'm possibly going to buy these from Yahoo auctions, so need to know the correct offset, would anything plus 40 do or??

Really want an offset of around the 45 mark, obviously the higher the better, as you can then use spacers if need be.

Haven't picked a set yet as i have to set up an account, but most seem to be 18x8.5 up front and 18x9.5 rears.

Had very similar white SSR's on my ITR and i loved them.

Maybe someone could photoshop the wheels for me, please?

I'd say the middle ones. Suit it better. An offset of 43 or 44 will do allround too I'd say

Leaning towards the Toms wheels myself would love the Volks if they had a bigger rear dish
