Hi guys just wondering if any of you have used the company called extreme offset wheels. If so what do you think of their service and products I am looking at getting the 5spokes in black with 8j front and 9j rear and the stainless studs. Any opinions would be valued :)

Craig is a very nice chap.

Very helpful and comms was great. The wheels took almost 3 months to land but they're bloody awesome T:

I am planning to go 16" with either 8 or 9j front and 9 or 10j rear so they are staggered. Et 30 front and et35 rear what do you think, will they rub and cause problems?

Like the look of them in silver, like the ones on the blue T4 in their website gallery. Although the dish looks deeper than the ones on your van? But you say yours are 8j front and 9 rear, yet the dish looks the same on both? I would like a staggered look deep dish up front and slightly deeper on the rear, do you know if this is possible and what figure represents the dish depth, is it the ET? Cheers



Wonder if the wheels above are 8j all round like the ones offered on the website under the 5 x112 section, like the dish on these. Cheap as chips and a cool alternative to banded steels.

They are a slightly different style to mine. I think they are something like and et 15 front and a et 10 or et 5 rear


The dish is different on mine, they're better viewed in the fleshT:

Cheers T: So whats the ET referring to? The dish depth? Ive emailed them to ask if they do staggered in that design but got no reply, will try again or call them tomorrow. £260 for 4 new wheels......bargain! T:A:

The et refers to the measurement of the gap between the mounting face that contacts the hub and the actual centre line of the rim. An et 0 would be dead centre of the wheel. Et -10 would be 10mm closer to the rear of the rim giving you more dish. et10 would be 10mm closer to the front (outer face) of the rim giving you less dish.

I think:D

I do like them with an et of 0 but in a n 8j with my 215\65\16 on think I may get some rubbing!
But I'm also concerned the 0 et will push them out too far!
Doesn't look it on that pic you've shown though!

Thinking about a set of either the 16 or the 17's it's the et that's confusing me I'm not after a staggered look I'm just after standerd looking larger steels so what et would I require on 8j?
