I'm in process on getting my new wheels and I need to make sure what offset to get. The setup is going to be 16x8 front and 16x9 rear Schmidt ML 3-piece. I really would love to get the 3" lip in the back and 2" in the front.
The options I have:
16x8 et21, 2" lip, 5.5" innerring.
16x9 et21, 2.5" lip, 6" innerring (use spacer to bring out to et15) OR
16x9 et08, 3" lip, 5.5" innerring (which I think would be too much of poke)
I guess the rear is my major decision. The fenders are rolled all around.
onto this

few pics (timbo2pointO) I had to borrow, but with TH's. The look I'm going for, thanks.
The specs....16x8 et20 front and 16x9 et18 rear.

Re: 16" wheel experts....help me with offset (BlueMk3VR6)

get the higher offset rears...that way you can space them to poke as much as you want them too....with an et8, you will have to roll pretty heavily to get to a good height...and you dont have many options as far as getting them to sit how u want

with rolled only id get the et 21 for the rear and space it out 5mm http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif if your realy wanting the larger lip i would oull your fenders 1st then
if you go lower then 15 (which is perfect imo) you wont be able to have a nice ride hieght and keep your tires for long
