    Hi, i am getting new wheels that have a diff offset, 37 as opposed to the standard 43. Meaning my wheels will stick out 6mm per side more than they currently do, giving the car a 12mm wider track. Is this going to cause any issues with wear on the car, handeling etc?

    Thanks, Ant

    If anything it makes the car feel more planted. I went from ET43 to ET45 with 12mm spacers, so resultant ET33 and the handling is pretty much the same, maybe slightly heavier, but the wider footing makes the car feel more stable in the corners (imo)
