Hello Sifus,

I am aware that this particular PCD size is kind odd. So searching for rims is limited/difficult. The ones that i come across must custom. Is there something of the shelf?

Anyone can share if they have come across this size or know of brands that have this PCD size? 18"x8J preferred.

Thank you :biggrin::biggrin::biggrin:

Sad case......:bawling::bawling:

I dont want to use adapter if possible. Defeats the purpose of having lightweight wheels. U add another approx 2kg to your lightweight rims.

Ishhhh.....Why design the wheels at 4x108.....Teruks la....

Consider aluminum adapter. They are much lighter than steel....You could customize it to the flush-fit to your wheels.
It's a good compromise for the right pcd rim, right offset, right price, ok performance.

No wonder P2 and P1 owners are spoilt of rim choices

Once add adapter need to find rims with inner offset.

P1 and 2 and most Jap, Korean cars all on 100 or 114.3 whether 4 or 5 lugs, makes it easy to mod rims.....:biggrin:

And also, can anyone explain to me offset in layman terms? Can it be said that Negative Offset is pushing the wheels to the fenders? And Positive Offset is pushing the wheels deeper into the fender?

Yes, the smaller the offset number (until negative), the more outwards the rims will be.

So lets say the stock rim is -34mm offset. And this stock offset has another 2cm gap from the fender. So in order to make it flush, i must get a rim with -54mm???:hmmmm::hmmmm:

Change the knuckle means you take out the hub and everything and change it with something more common like 5x114 lor. But that's a lot of work just for the sake of rims.

In a way the calculation is correct, but most FWD offset are positive, therefore say original offset is 55 so to bring out the wheels will be 35.

Wahhhhhhh. Agreed. Too much to be done just for rims

Yes, but most cars actually already have positive offset. Very seldom rims are negative offset. So if std offset is say 50 and the rims are inside fenders by 2cm then to bring it more out/aligned with the fender line, then you need to change to offset 30 for the same rim width.

What I trying to explain is those days RWD cars will have negative offset. Their wheel base is set further in so they need negative offset to bring the wheels out.
Nowadays as mentioned by bro. 6UE5t, most cars are now positive offset...:driver:

Ahhhhhh....Ok. So lets say if stock is +34mm and there is a 20mm gap from the fender, so the new rims should be offset +14mm if i want it to flush with fender. Correct?

If the stock rims is -34mm and there is 20mm gap, so the new rims offset should be -54mm if want it to flush. Correct??
