New hubs would be best. If not you can get what resemble 20mm spacers. These bolt to your hub then you bolt the wheel to them. Shouldnt really need anything else.

From reading some american forums theyre 0 offset? dead centre?


I dont know how realistic it is trying to fit these wheels but theyre corvette YJ8 15x8


(with smaller tyres obviously)

If the wheel is et 0 then with 20mm spacer your looking at effective et 20. In an 8j wheel its possible. Might need some added camber but very possible.


I have 9.75j rim with et25 and R99 has 9j et 10 so you should be able to.

0 offset with a spacer will be -20


The lower the number the further out.


With 20mm adaptors you will be looking for wheels of a 50-60et

So will they or wont they fit with all the adapters? :blink:


If im honest i dont really understand ET (not the movie) I just wanna know if theyre gonna fit, i dont mind running some camber but not stupid because i want it to be hoonable and i dont mind running a tiny bit of poke but not like

I doubt they will fit without some big arches!


I have ran 8" wide with et37 and they were wide at the back.


The et of the wheel is the distance from the hub mounting face to halfway between the front and back lips.


A et0 on a 8" wide rim would have the mounting face in the middle, 4" from either lip.


So if you can handle a et40 the spacer is +20mm so you need to find a wheel with a et60 ish


Or better still redrilling the hubs is a better job
