I'm finally ready to order my Volks. I"m getting the TE-37's in 9.5 and 10.5. What is the perfect offset so my tires won't rub? I'll be running 295's in the back. One day I might go a little bigger:)

Thanks.

As far as I know the Volks aren't available in custom offsets.

I have been told that the +45 offset will fit a 295 in the rear... but I don't know for sure.

Good luck...

Bryant,

Let me know what offsets those wheels are offered in (for the 9.5" and 10.5"), and I will let you know which ones will fit.

Jim Swantko,

You will need at least a 48mm offset to get a 295 on the rear without mods. That would be on a 10" wheel. For a 295 on a 10.5" wheel you will need at least a 50mm offset.

Later, Steve

Like I said... I have been "told" that it would work. But I trust Steve on this stuff.

Steve... this is the same wheel that you and I talked about. Look back through your e-mails and I'm sure you'll remember where I beat this to death once already! :D I even had links to the Volk website with offsets. Hahaha...

Jim,

I'm not positive on this, as I get a different answer from everyone, but here goes. I've been told these are going to be "special order rims". They'll take about 3 monthes to get. They're not available in these widthes/color, but they will make them. So shouldn't I be able to just tell them the offset I need also? I could understand if they were premade or whatever, but...

thanks

Even Kinesis doesn't offer a true custon offset. They have a certain # of center sections and rim halfs. Though different combinations of the above that can give you very close to your desired offset, but not exactly. This is probably what they will do, so ask them what they can give you in the 45-50mm offset range for the front and 50-55mm offset range for the rear.

The reason they are custom order is because they are the 10.5" wheel. You can find the standard Supra fitment 8.5"F and 9.5"R almost anywhere. But to get the 10.5" wheel you order them from Japan... and wait about 3 months... hence the special order.

Check out the fitment guide taken from Rays Japanese website.

For the 18x10.5"... there are 2 choices. +15 and +45.

If you can get a different offset let me know. But I don't think you can.

I know that Nero at Titanmotorsports has/had a set of 18x9.5 and 18x10.5 in stock... you better want Bronze.
