Default What Is The Best 11" Wide Wheel Offset?

Hi All, I Was Wondering If Anyone Is Running 18x11-19x11 Or 20x11 Without Issues. I Would Like To Know What Offset You Are Running And What Tire Size On The Rear? Also If You Had To Modify Anything? I Appreciate All Your Input.

Thanks
George

I'm not sure you can go 11 wide without some die grinder use....

I have the Steeda Spyders 20x11, but I'm only running 295s INVOs for now, as that was the deal at the time. I'll keep you updated when I jump to a 315 or 335... There's no rubbing issues, but I'm not sure of the offset, I'm sure Steeda could tell you if you gave them a call.

Thanks For The Replies. I Thought There Would Be A Lot More With All The Supposed 11" Rims Out There. Thanks Guys For The Replies And 2008gt500 I Will Give Steeda A Call.

When I was researching I also inquired about offset numbers. None were ever divulged.

Even the wheel manufacturer I used prefered not to disclose the numbers only stating "We've done a GT500, we know what they should be."

I just now saw your posting - for me I got 11" wide wheels from CCW (SP500's). I ordered them to be 52mm offset in the rear, and they are perfect. I run Toyo drag radials 315/35/18 on the rears. By the way, I still have at least 1/2" clearance to the inside from my tires to the shock, so pleanty of space when parking or going over uneven surfaces so they will not rub.

No, I have the FRPP racing springs which lower the car 1.25" all the way around.

Man I REALLY like those tires and wheels, BIG and PHAT! They look like they really hook up. I know that a lot of folks on here like the 19's and 20's. Yes they are more glamourous but these bad buys look like they mean BUSINESS. Do share, how do they ride, hook up etc....... Spare no details.
