Re: Wheel Fantasy-correct offset
In a message dated 96-12-14 17:14:52 EST, you write:
<< So realistically speaking, these rims will fit on a 5TQ because
the offset is correct at 45mm. I'll look into this. I'll also laugh
at the price per wheel. I don't want them that bad. Anyway, these
same A4 rims should fit on your V8 Q because the offset is higher-not
lower. The reason they won't fit on your V8 Q is because I presume
you still have the UFO brakes and the wheels will not fit around the
calipers right? They might also look a little funny because they will
sit inwards of the fenders and not look "filled out" anymore right?
Thanks, Chad, but no, I don't have the UFO brakes anymore(but even if I did,
they'd probably still fit), but you're right on the 2nd count --they'd look a
little funny not filling out those fenders. Hope your Christmas wish comes
true! Incidentally, Tire Rack has a new Fitipaldi Wheel (Polaris) in an
attractive 5-spoke design.
