Please can you confirm the Offset of these wheels?

Also I assume no tyres from the pics?

Where are they located?

Would you be able to deliver to PO9 area? and if so how much? (I need an ET38 to clear my calipers on my ZS... may get away with an ET40)

Thanks!

hi mate, checked for offset on them and they aren`t marked with an offset.

if it helps, these came off a factory built race 200/zr race car.

Hmmm... All of the OE (Road) Wheels are ET45 Offset... which is the reason for me looking around for a new set (They foul my calipers without spacers!)

I'll see if I can do some investigation into these wheels though...

Ok, but its a lot of money to spend to find out they don't fit :)

And your not exactly round the corner so I could try trial fit them!

Will give it some thought and let you know.. Thanks dude

(By the way... Brembo Calipers on my car!)

I don't suppose you happen to know what model they are?

Are they "Speedline corse type 2013 magnesium wheels" ?

The few places that mention Offest seem to suggest ET45 - ET48 which from what I have been told is not enough clearance.

Certainly my MK2 180 wheels need a 5mm spacer to clear the claipers (they are ET45) hence the requirement for ET38 :)

However... in my limited Wheel measurement experience I don't know what the difference when you come to wider wheels (these wheels are noted as being 8J, ZS180 wheels 7.5J width) so they might clear :)

If you could please offer them up to a ZS and see what sort of clearance you get that would be good please! :)

Thankyou.

There is no difference between the MK2 180 wheels or the MK1 straights I have... Both need 5mm spacers to clear my calipers, also I was told all Rover OE wheels were ET45... hence my assumption that the MK2 180 wheels were ET45.

However, as I understand it the MK2 wheels are wider, therefore the offset might be different slightly? (Either way they don't clear my clipers :p)
