Oooo! Pics? I think the 40 offset may be the determining factor there...can't say for sure.

Re: quick question!! will they fit? (crossie)

You should be fine, I am running 19x8"s with ET 43 (or 38, can't remember what this specific set has) with 225/40 in the rear and 235/35 fronts and don't have any real issues. You are a whole inch smaller wheel so you should be fine. I had 19x8.5" with an ET 38 and was just fine. Get them crossie, get them! And send me a pic! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0">

I have 18x7.5 with 225/40/18 tires, 40 offset. I also have H&R springs. <p>No rubbing at all, even at full lock. I had five adults in there this past weekend and there was no bottoming out or rubbing either.<p>If you need pics, click on my Car Domain link on my sig.

Re: quick question!! will they fit? (ForceFed Motorsports)

Now the real question is: will my new 20x9 Asanti AF120s fit my car? lol...<br> <IMG SRC="http://photos-g.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc1/hs122.snc1/5260_103466919441_775614441_2101726_1920362_n.jpg" BORDER="0">

Re: quick question!! will they fit? (carreragt7)

Sucks they are 20's because Asanti's are the poop <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>If they were 19's id have to trade you a turbo kit for those, can you change them like you can resize a ring lol?

They might fit. I had 18x8s with a 40 offset and they rubbed in the back with H&Rs. Only slightly, but enough to make me not run them until I roll the fenders.

Re: quick question!! will they fit? (ForceFed Motorsports)

I wish, I wish. I got them to appease my GF (she is getting tired of me spending all my time and money on my car) for her S60...and she doesn't like them. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/zeroforum_graphics/screwy.gif" BORDER="0"> Wants 5 spokes, so I will just finish up getting her a set of pegs. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/rolleyes.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>However, just messing with the wheel calculator if I were to run 225/30/20s on them they would actually be a better fit (height wise) than my 19"s... a little less rubber, more wheel. I'd also have to figure out what their offset is, but that extra 1/2" width could be feasible if I roll my fenders. Whaddya think? lol...<p>Anyhow, Crossie, get your wheels. They will look killer on your car!

Re: quick question!! will they fit? (carreragt7)

Find the center of the wheel and measure how many mm from the line the wheel hub is. Then you got your offset <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

Me + Math = Utter Disaster. My buddy with the bimmer is going to help me figure it out later.

Re: quick question!! will they fit? (carreragt7)

Other thing you can do is lay the wheel on its side and measure from the ground to the hub. You know the wheel width so divide that by two and you have your centerline. Then just subtract the two and you have your difference. Convert inches to MM and you got your offset. Now im curious lol.

Re: quick question!! will they fit? (ForceFed Motorsports)

That is correct ^^<p><br>Those are too big AJ. 20's just look funny. Theyre gorgeous though, but 20s are just too big. Then again youre AJ, you might be able to pull 'em off, but I still think those axis hiros were the best looking on your car evar

Re: quick question!! will they fit? (carreragt7)

<br>thanks for the comments, guys.. now this evening we'll see if I get the wheels (ebay auction always kinda sucks for this..)<p><br><TABLE WIDTH="90%" CELLSPACING=0 CELLPADDING=0 ALIGN=CENTER><TR><TD><i>Quote, originally posted by <b>carreragt7</b> »</i></TD></TR><TR><TD CLASS="quote">Now the real question is: will my new 20x9 Asanti AF120s fit my car? lol...<br> </TD></TR></TABLE><br> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/eek.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>I remember giving you an award for something... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>wh**lwh*re <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0"> heheheh

LOL. Yup, I got that award. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"> Funny thing is, the 20s would actually fit better than my 19s according to my buddies and my calculations, and using the wheel calculator. They would actually almost be an identical fit as my 19s if I were running 235/30/20s, and they would only stick out .2" or so more. I didn't buy these with the intention of putting them on my S40, but my gf's S60. Just messin around with the possibilty out of boredom. Lots of guys on cardomain are running 20"s on their cars, just not a popular thing on the forum. I would rather go down to 18"s than go up to 20"s.

Re: (carreragt7)

I think they just start to look funny over a 19" wheel. They would be the same diameter sounds like but you gotta remember you have almost zero tire lol. You had issues bending your 19's id have to pray Asanti makes a solid wheel because with those rubber bands and your new coilovers the wheel is gonna take the blow <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/frown.gif" BORDER="0">
