BUZZZZZ.  I've always wanted to do that!  Anyway, the stock 15x8 Ronal
wheels for the QTC DO have an offset of 45mm.  That's no typo.  35mm with a
8" wide wheel is better for clearance though on a lowered non-fender rolled
TQC.  I have both and must say I like the clearance of the 35mm wheels
better (no rubbing), but handling is better with the 15x8 Ronals.  This is
not my imagination.  The TQC handles better with the stock 8" Ronals and
throw away 205mm tires than it does with the 35mm offset, lighter 16x8
wheels with good 225mm tires.
