Negative offset won't fit most front wheel drive cars. We need a high positive offset for our cars. +40 up on 7 in wide rims and +45 up for 8 in wide rims. There are some rims that have a slightly deep dish look without giving you such a very low offset.

bah ya i googled the name n saw em

The other thing i was wondering about was ( i dunno if theses are considered deep dish aswell) but ones where the center of the rim is sunkin and the rest of the rims are like from the from front of the rim inward...

they would look something like this but the center is more sunken in


so basically the EXACT opposite of this

Kinda more so like xxguitarist but centers should be deeper i seen them alot on eclipses (green ones with gold rims) best i can member.... had lots of spokes tho

on a side note i was also wondering about streching the tires, i know its not good but in normal everyday driving how bad is it?
