    A few of us on here have ET45 and ET44 wheels fitted. ZBoyd has ET44 19's. The offset you list is going to be fine bearing in mind OEM ET is 52 I think.

    Cool! Ta!

    I take it ET48 will push the wheels slightly further out into the arches?

    No - the smaller the number the more they fill the arches.

    You may get a slight scuffing on the inner arch when on full lock... i'm on a 45 offset and have noticed mine does this very lightly.

    Sportlines. Sits a bit higher than Dans which has proper wound down coilies, but lower than most other aftermarket springs :)

    They are a bargain price wise too. The lightest wheels you can buy for that money and about 3kg less per wheel compared to OEM....

    I'm starting to think I've ordered ET42...does that mean they stick out of the car more than ET45? I really not too sure about this hole ET malarky..seems that you can clear the callipers more with some offests and then others can be nearer to the caliper yet stick out of the arches more...

    Yep. Very seriously looking in to it at the moment. I am looking at getting some decent money to have a garage take it off my hands.
