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

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.

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

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

Is it to do with the depth of the dish?

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

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.

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

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.

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.

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

It must be possible
