offset and suspension make a huge difference on what you may "need"

offset can be found on the wheel either with ET ___ or ___ mm

another note, when running anything wider than 5mm please use longer lugbolts

8mm in the front might be a bit much.

maybe try 5mm up front and the 15mm in the back?

i know there's a couple guys in here who are running that set up with pics. maybe they'll pop in here and show you what it looks like.

i want the wheels to mach up with the wheel wells or stick out just a bit. i do not want to waist my time with 5mm if that is not going to cut it
