Upgraded Wheels

Iím looking to get a new look for my G12. My original wheels are 19 x 8.5 offset +25.

I like the Ace Alloy AFF09 and they offer it 19 x 8.5 but was wondering if someone is looking to stick with OEM specs, should I get the offset the same as OEM ? +25 ? Or it doesn't work that way?

Also, will get Continental PureContact LS tires

Is CarID a good place to get the set? Any other recommended places?

In general sticking with factory specs will always be the safest route. I've had Google send me to CarID a lot lately but their site seems a bit "meh" and product selections seemed generic for what I've searched there. I have not done business with then though so I can't speak to what sort of experience you might have shopping for wheels there.

Tirerack.com is the longstanding website that I know of and probably the first place I'd go as I've had excellent experience with then in the past. Also, they specialize in wheels and tires as opposed to just being a cleaning house for "stuff" which CarID appears to be. See if they have anything you like and then call them to ask further about specific fitment, pricing, service and warranty policies.

Cheers!

I agree using the same offset is safe. If you want a more aggressive offset you can just add spacers. Too much offset and there's not much you can do.

If I were you, I'd get your wheels from a local shop that way you can see how they look before finalizing it.

I would like to stick to oem specs but wasnít sure that offsets are apples to apples when changing the wheels. I wasnít sure if the aftermarket wheel offset of +25 is the same equivalent of the oem offset of +25.

Nothing good locally in my area, otherwise I agree on how it is not the same compared to buying blindly online.


Yeah, on most items, CarID is a drop shipper but their website makes it like they are handling wheels and tires on-site. I noticed there is another website: getyourwheels.com I might give it a tryÖ

One thing to consider when comparing offset on aftermarket to OEM is the wheel width. So if you had two wheels with +25 offset. Wheel A is 10" wide and wheel B is 9" wide. Wheel A would stick out further even though they're the same offset.
