As one of the "old fawks", exactly what is that word a substitute for? Sounds like it could go either way!

Show us what you got...just as long as it either has no effect or improves chassis dynamics (ride, braking, or handling)...won't sacrifice any just for looks.

The setup im after will not change chassis dynamics, sacrifice ride quality, and will improve handling

See I will not take a challenge I know I am going to lose. Like I said..we will agree to disagree. It's cool though, I have two years to enjoy my CPO warranty then it's "on it's face." I have already found out that my seats don't go down and I have no pass through for ski's so.....Air Ride coming. Plan is get AAA and ditch the spare and put the tank in the wheel well. SOOO MUCH TIME TO WAIT...

Ok, not to sound stupid, but still a little confused on the offsets. If you have a 32 offset compared to a 44, does that mean that the wheel will sit in towards the centerline of the car 12 mm more on the et32 wheel? Thanks

OK, sorry I think i figured it out.

Its the opposite of what I originally thought..... meaning that the higher the offset the more they will sit in towards the centerline.

Therefore, a lower offset wheel than stock will cause the wheels to stick out.
