    I'm just curious for everyone with aftermarket wheels what did you choose for your backspacing and offset?

    I like the way the way those addicts look. I tried to order ATX Thug wheels but they have been discontinued. with the offset and backspace you went with did it change your stance at all?

    the stock wheels have 3.41" front space

    18mm 9" = 4.30" front space

    so yes, the +18mm Addict wheels make the tires stick out about .90" more.

    and here is a pic next to XBX's Rap, we are both at top perch which obviously pulls the front wheel track in a little. but you can see my stance vs. his with the stock wheels.

    Thanks for the picture that is a nice comparison. Although it looks like yours sits slightly higher then XBX's. I know the offset is relative to the backspace. the main reason I am asking was I talked to a rep from american racing and he suggested that I stick with 4.5 BS since the vehicle sits so wide. So I'm just trying to see what others have chosen.
