RedNSX Doesn't something need to be re calibrated when you change the wheel alignment?

Shouldn't be a problem as long as you go to a good wheel and tire shop that is aware of this, should be common knowledge to them.

St.Who The gold is too bright on the Ferrari above, I agree. It also bothers me that the rims are gold but there are silver emblems on other parts of the vehicle. I think that gold goes best with darker colors.

|\|SX For cosmetic purposes I know it helps with fitting in a wider wheel without it poking out the body. Some guys will want to run a wider tire for more traction but for the most part, when it's done like this, it's for cosmetic reasons.

RedNSX Are there actually any benefits to have different offsets or is it just for cosmetic purposes?

FastAndFurious Think I'll stick with zero offset.
Found this warning on discount tires about negative offset tires:

Note that extensive negative offset can potentially cause increased steering wheel kick-back and place additional stresses on the vehicle's entire suspension

|\|SX That's due to the wheel having a deep negative offset for an aggressive setup.

This should help to illustrate the variation in wheel offsets:

FastAndFurious Not a fan of the way those gold rims sinks into the middle. Or is it the angle of the picture?
