    Hi

    I want to fit a set of wheels to my S3 however they are only availiable in 5x120 with and offset of 42.

    Is it possible to get these to fit my S3 with some spacer etc, or is the offset wrong.

    Cheers,

    Ben

    how wide are the wheels?

    You'll need an adaptor to bring it back to 5x100. Adaptors are usually 20mm thick which would drop your ET to 22. Which would probably be fine assuming the wheels arent super wide...

    you should be fine then. I have 8.5" wide wheels with Et25 and they're fine, your will only poke out another 3mm further than mine, so you shouldn't worry about it on that front

    edit: change should to shouldn't :applaus:
