Looking for the best wheel fitment to create the biggest lip and lowest offset disk profile. From all the pictures i've seen, the largest is around 4 inches? Are people just buying catalog wheels, because no one seems to list their offsets at all.
19x9.5 / 20x11 staggered 3pc superlow disk reverse lip; is what i'm trying to find.

like these two cars, but a lot more lip:

those wheels have lip, but not large enough. looks to be around a +20 offset.

i'm mostly a 240sx car owner; on our cars, we would run 18x10 -10 to create a 5 inch lip to fit FLUSHED with our body.

is there a ballpark range for corvette's too?

maybe i should just contact these wheel manufacture. but sometimes they're not always right.

maybe because it's the design of the car, if offset was any lower, it would hit the TC arms and inner fender well?

HRE, iforged, ccw, etc. i dont deal with cheap wheels.

thanks, kinda new here. looking for wheels for a friend. :)

Remember

You have to remember that one of the reasons the offset may not be givin is because these wheels are made to order per the vehicle specified. Iforged makes the wheel on the black C6, so they will make whatever offset fits best for the application.

I dont know the owner, but since the factory z06 wheel is 12 inches wide. You can take a guess that these are between 12 and 13" (maybe 13.5 if they make it) wide for the rear. The front is pretty deep also, so minimum 10 inches wide in the front. Although i think its 11 inches wide in the front.

i understand that these companies can make any offsets. but the buyer has to know the offset he/she wants. I laugh when people goes to places and say "i want so and so on my car"
When i buy wheels, i'd say "i want 18x10.5 +15 wheels for my car."

i'll just contact iforged or ccw. thanks guys.

I think that the real question is. what kind of fenders you are planning on using since you want a very deep dish on your wheels. :cheers: :buhbye:

stock offsets (on c5's) are very high, in the +50 region on the c5's, which doesn't allow for very much lip, by design.

We can work with you and your lip needs. Our engineers will be able to accomodate most requirements.

Our offsets are determined on a per vehicle basis. For this reason we dont really publish offsets for specific models. Our lip sizes are determined by pad height, susp mods, body alterations, bbk upgrades etc.

Let me know if you need any more info.
