I've just ordered a set of wheels from Victoria tire and I'm not sure if the offset is correct.<P>They're 15X7 Team Dynamic Rim 2000's<BR>the bolt pattern is 5X108<BR>I think the offset is 25.<P>They are an anthracite wheel that should look nice on my 1990 245 (which is almost identical to the project 245)<P>A picture of the wheel can be found here: <A HREF="http://www.teamdynamicsusa.com/wheels/wheel-images/rim2000anthracite.jpg" TARGET=_blank>http://www.teamdynamicsusa.com/wheels/wheel-images/rim2000anthracite.jpg</A> <P>Thanks,<BR>/A<P>

For that size wheel, a 20mm offset would be ideal, but 25mm will work fine. What size tires do you plan to use, and is the car lowered?<P>

The tire size will be 205/65/15<P>The car is not lowered currently, but if I plan to lower in the future what should I look out for?<P><BR>/A

205/65/15 will rub on a lowered car, but they might work on your car. I personally wouldn't use anything taller than 205/60/15. I'm using 205/55/15 right now, and my left rear tire rubs just slightly over high speed, big bumps. The front is about 2" lower, but the rear is only about 0.25" lower than stock.<P>
