    Exclamation Will there be a problem?

    i was looking on wheel dude and found the rims i want(rota pwr) .I don't quite grasp the measurements to know what I'm getting into. i looked at other forums and they said if running 18x9.5 try to get offset +48 or +50. the ones i see are (5x100/e35/73) or (5x100/e38/73) can someone help me understand a little better? will run into any problems running these measurements?

    Everything you ever needed to know. They have a whole article on how offset works. I suggest you read that, and the articles about fitment.

    Generally, from a performance standpoint you want to stay as close to stock offset as possible. You may or may not run into problems running a 35 or 38 offset. The first issue would be tires rubbing, it's very likely. What is your drop?
