    Agressive wheel fitment E3

    Hey all,
    I'm looking at getting new shoes for the Maloo, and need some help.
    I'm getting some custom made 3piece wheels from the states and want some advice with offset etc.
    Sizes I'm looking at are 20x9-9.5 fronts and 20x11 rear, can this be done?
    As for offset, I'd like it to be almost flush but sit inside the guards a few mm so it doesn't scrub.
    Has anyone else tried for wheels this size etc? As the wheels are custom made, I want to make sure I get what I want and don't stuff it up lol
    Thanks
    Christian

    Thanks for that mate!
    The calculator is great but I'm not sure as to what offset I'll need to enter lol
    Hopefully some ppl can chime in with pics and info on their wide wheels and offset setups ��

    Awesome!
    I've done alot of research. Turns out the best version they have in the states is the G8 GXP which has the same brakes as our redline brembos? So our hsv ones are larger?
    So can't really take their advice...
    We measured my car by hand which to me seemed a little scary as the wheels will be custom made and im so scared we'll fcuk it up haha despite my mate telling me he's do e this all before

    Try making a cardboard template of the wheel and tyre combo based on the measures from the calculator.
    I did this for the new wheels I'm getting fitted. The template fits and today I will find out if the wheels fit for real
