Re: what wheel size do you run? 15"s, 16"s, 17"s or 18"s? (Milkysunshine)

I had 17's on my car for a while, but there is too much rubbing with my car being so damn low, so I went back to 15's and couldn't be happier!!! Especially on the roads near me!

16 x 6.5" VW "Rave" wheels for now (OE on the Turbo Beetles) because some low-life tried to pinch my Speedlines and mussed them all up
.
16 x 7.5" BBS RCs are in the works. I do rather fancy a set of the 17" Porsche Boxster wheels but the cost is astronomical and practicality is nil. I feel that 16 inch wheels are the best real-world compromise for Corrado owners. Now about my car being 2" off the street..........
I guess I can only put up with so much worry and aggravation and 17 inchers with 40 series tyres would be one more.
One could make the argument that 17 inch wheels are actually less visually pleasing than 15s or 16s. The Corrado is, by today's standards, a very small car with a short wheelbase. I think many 17 inch wheels make the car appear to be "on tiptoe", especially if the car is not lowered. My fantasy Corrado wheel would have to be a set of 15 x 7.5 deep-dish Speedlines in the OE style, just with a modest lip. I'll stop rambling now and do some actual work

I am running 18" also. They are Racing Hart C-5's that have been painted Atlas Gray with the aluminum centers. AWESOME

"what is the right offset for a C 16' i have two sets of 16's one is 45mm and one is 35mm"
It depends on the width of the wheel. Offset is the distance from the centerline of the wheel to the mounting surface.
So if you were comparing a 6.5" wide wheel with a 7.5" wide wheel, the 7.5" wide wheel would have to have 13mm more offset to retain the same backspace.

Where the hell do you fit the brake disc's on those?!!!! They must be tiny.
Does your car actually stop when you put your foot on the brake?
