that is my concern. i think the offset is around 12mm, and this is where my knowledge runs out as to what will fit my car.

thinnest adapter anyone will make is 20 mm so that gives you and offset of - 8 youll be sitting mexican lowrider stylz

thinnest adapter anyone will make is 20 mm(safest minimum thickness) so that gives you and offset of -8 youll be sitting mexican lowrider stylz even if you can get someone to make you a 10mm adapter (which woule be et 2, massive poke), which would be about as safe as gluing those to your hub , it isnt going to work

Re: (Nevertheless)

just drill your hubs/rotors it is very cheap and any machine shop should be able to do it. and you wont have to worry about a retarded offset or "mexican low rider stylz"
