ok i have 16x7 46+ offset and 16x8 46+offset

here is what i was thinking
16x7 46+ add 5mm (front)
16x8 46+ add 15mm (rear)
or
16x7 46+ add 5mm (front)
16x8 46+ add 10mm (rear)

tire sizing would be:
225/45/16 (front)
245/45/16 (rear0
or
225/45/16 (front)
245/50/16 (rear)


I would like to have a set-up that will have my wheels flush w/the fenders (front and rear)

Oh, a dumb question but... say i have 46+ offset and i add 5mm to it than it would be like 41+offset right?

Thanks guys

Stock setup is 1 inch stagger, same offset all arround, so there really isnt really any reason to not keep it like that. Now, those offsets will be pretty tucked, so you might want 15mm spacers front and rear (still wont be flush, about 10mm tucked at that point).

You are correct that a +46 with a 5mm spacer becomes, effectivly, a +41.

Just FYI, the stock wheels are 6" wide in front, 7" wide in rear, +45 offset all the way arround. Also, a perfectly flush setup with 7" front and 8" rear (as you have) would have a +22 offset.

16x7 +31 (what a 15mm spacer would essentially do) is pretty damn flush. its not technically RIGHT at the fender.

but yeah, adding a 5mm spacer subtracts from the offset number of the wheel.

id run 10mm spacers on both sides.
