    Wheel Advice

    I am toying with the idea of replacing the original DTM alloys on my car for some aftermarket ones. I would like to stick with 18" wheels as the tyres I have on my current wheels are brand new so seems silly replacing them, Im really liking the BBS wheels at the moment but wanted to know what offset I will need to order. Ideally I would like to fill the arch a little more at the same time, the current size tyre I am running at the moment is 235/40/18

    thanks in advance for the help.

    Why not use spacers on your current wheels to fill the arches. As your sticking with 18's DTM's are a nice wheel

    Don't get me wrong I love the wheels but hate trying to keep them clean!! I've always had a soft spot for BBS wheels so was thinking of having a summer and winter set of wheels, our DTM's could also do with a refurb and for the cost to get them all done I may as well bite the bullet and spend the extra to have a shiny new set on the car and make it look a little different from standard.

    I think ET32-ET35 is ideal on B7s.
