Hi guys, sorry if this is poorly worded, it's my first post.
Looking at aftermarket wheels for my moon grey 20vt, and have found these wolfrace wheels (attached image).
The sizes and offsets are included in the photo, would anyone be able to advise if they would fit without spacers?
Thanks in advance, Ben

Don't think they will fit with that ET Ben.
You will need a 10mm spacer or an ET of around 25mm for a 20vt iirc.

What is the official ET as there's a few variations bantered about?

This is how it should have come out of Torino!

So would any wheel with an offset of et25 be okay within reason?
Only ask as I remember seeing someone say they were running some et35 without spacers but I may be wrong

I have just found these (attached) on demon tweaks, sizes are as follows:

Width - 7inch
Diameter - 17inch
PCD - 4x98
Offset - ET35

Am I right in thinking these would fit with 10mm spacers?

Also is anyone able to reccomend some wheel spacers incase I do need them?
Thanks

The ET is correct so you won't need spacers, before ordering check the centre hub size as they might need spiggot rings.

Just checked and I believe they are 58.06, should this fit okay?
Or would this not fit if the coupes bore is 58.1?

You can't tell if any particular wheel will clear the calipers on a 20vt just from the offset. It also depends on the design of the spokes, particularly the rear of the spokes. The only way to be 100% sure is to test fit the wheel or if someone already has them fitted and can tell you.

We've been getting caught out with for 20 years already, this wheel with X offset fits therefore this other wheel with Y offset should also fit.... except it doesn't when you actually try.

Thanks Graham, may just have to try them then.
Would anyone know if a centre bore of 58.06 be too small?
