    Et 33 is a bit aggressive.

    That's the reason I asked I don't really understand these wheel sizes.

    I am running a 19x8 replica with a 45mm offset and 255/40/19.

    The 33 mm offset means it will stick out another 12mm. Mine re pretty much right to the edge of the fender. It will be tight, if you don't plan on lowering, you may be able to pull it off.

    Well I don't want them past the out fender but with right wheels I don't think I will need to lower it. But if I did I wouldn't go too low. The hr springs go about an inch right? I would rather do wheels first for now. I saw them on this Scirocco and figured if they fit on that they may work for me.

    So this B7 is on coil overs and Q7 replicas from discount tire direct. 20x9 et40. Ventus V12 Evo 245/30/20 tires. [​IMG]
    So for our cars fitment do we need more or less offset? I'm confused if et33 is too aggressive and will be past the fenders it seems like these 20 x 9 et40 rims would stick out further. Either way the Q7s look dam sweet on this car and I the savannah rims would too.

    Let me see if I can explain without muddying up the waters.....

    Offset means the wheel sits further in, or further out from center line. So for example, a 20x9" wheel, with 0mm offset bolts to the hub with 4.5" to the inside and 4.5" to the outside (from the hub). When you add +40mm offset, it goes further inside the wheel wheel. So a 33MM offset sits further out than a 40MM by 7MM. Now this is only true if both wheels are the same width. You have to take that into account.

    So what would be a suitable range in offset for the B7?
