    Default 306 Gti6 Offset Questions + 18" Rims???

    Hi this is probably a basic question but i never really pay attention to offsets and such.

    Im very interested in getting a set of 18" rim for my 306.

    Wheels: RacingHart Type CR Monoblock 18 x 7.5, offset 42, stud pattern 4x 108

    Now will these rims fit onto my hub? I think the wheels come with 20mm spacers.

    The wheels came off a 307 do they share the same offset as a 306/405/205?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated as im very keen on getting these wheels.


    Also i know 18" will struggle to fit under my guards but it is possible isnt it? Im prepared to cut and lip my guards slightly...and im aware the car will ride and handle like a brick


    Thanks

    Alex

    Just curious, if you know it's going to handle worse, why do you want to put 18's on?

    If you do get the 18's, wouldn't your tyre profile decrease so your overall diameter remain the same? If so, you shouldn't have any problems fitting it under the guards due to the diameter. Though the 20mm spacer might cause some problems. Sorry, can't offer any useful info. Good luck.

    I checked out your website, nice site btw. The mags you have on at the moment are a nice design, but checking the side-on view of the car, I'm assuming they're 17's (only because you want to get 18's) but they look absolutely HUGE! The car looks all mags. I liked the first pic', the one with the stock gti6 rims painted black, it's slightly understated but looks the business. Up to you though, looks are all subjective anyway.
    Take the long way home....

    Hey

    The pics of my car with the 17" are old...they are now on my brothers Gti6.
    I have had the stock Gti6 15" rims on my car for about a year now.

    I like the understated/stealth look and i loved the way the car looks BUT i need change. After seeing some of nice Audis and Golfs with classy wheels and kits i think i want to get my car looking like that as its a bit messy at the moment.

    Im still going to keep my 15" wheels but might just put the 18" on for show i think its time my car looked a bit more classy than it does at the moment.

    I wouldnt think 18" wheels come under the heading of classy, probably closer to rice...

    When i had my 17"s i had to get hub adaptors to make it a 4X100 Honda fitment. I think Harrop made mine up ( i got Donnelons in Box Hill to organise that)

    Most places that make custom billet or machined parts should be able to make up a set.

    Hey Edwin

    My adaptors cost me way too much...but yeah i was just new to modifying cars when i got them. I paid $800 for a set of 4 to be custom machined up.

    The adaptors made my hubs into a standard Honda fitment which is 4X100 sumthing offset..not sure. Basically after that was done i could fit alot of wheels as Honda fitment has a huge range.

    Sorry i havent emailed u....i havent forgotten im still very interesting just looking into how i can ship them down here.
