Tbh the RS's just look so much better than the RM's. Even if the differences are so slight.

It must be possible

I thought about doing this before, but the offsets are just miles out, thats why I went for the RX's from a cally DTM.

RMs are ET33 and 6.5" wide, RSs are ET25 and 7" wide, RMs have the dots on the centre cap, RSs have the spokes continued on the centre cap, RMs are a shitload cheaper than RSs.

Remind me again what the differance between the RS and RM wheels are?

Corsa C is ET49 unless it's an SRi, when it's ET40.

You MIGHT get a 7" RM on there, which would be ET27 (I think) with a 165/50 15 tyre and some arch trim trimming.

I'm not really sure, I never tried anything more than an ET49 6x16 on mine :lol:

the ofset on a corsa c is et38 isnt it?

Even with super stretched tyres and super hard suspension?

7J may be possible :boggle:

I reckon even with 6.5x15 ET33 RMs you'd struggle, they'd probably be sitting right on the outside of the arch. Any wider/lower offset and it's not going to happen I don't think.

is that what you always say :o :lol:

ok then, so it seems its perfectly possible. The reson im asking is that ive seen a set on a corsa c round me and i want to know how wide they are.


Robin

The RMs are ET33 by the looks of it, and the RMs came as ET25, when you add more dish, the offset gets lower as there's more on the outside, so it sits further out in the arch.

Not a lot you can do about that TBH, unless you buy a VW when it's not a problem, my wheels are ET25 and 7.5" wide, I've got space for about another inch :lol:

Just seen them. et25 though :( how come some have higher offsets than others though :boggle:

Is it to do with the depth of the dish? :boggle:


Robin

Yeah 4x100, there's a set on page 3 of the classifieds on there which are well worth a look.


Hamish

posted on 12th Sep 07 at 00:32

yea im looking through edition38 classifieds :|. Tbh RS's look the tits :cool:

PCD 4x100?


Robin

Oh, they weren't the ones on the Polo GTi though :P

Those are BBS RSs.

Offsets and widths are confusing as fuck with them as they were numbered like RS001 and RS031, but I don't have a clue what any of that means.

Basically, I THINK they were 6.5" wide standard, with a 1" dish, but new dishes are available from loads of places.

The bottom ones are 8", not sure about Pauls 7.5 front 8" rear maybe? no idea.

RSs are expensive, RMs are cheaper and look pretty much the same.


Hamish

no not those ones, these ones:
