Rims look good, but Im confused. Why did you get different offsets???
The rims are 8" wide all around and you have the same size tire all around.
Why would you get the rear rims with a 5mm different offset??
yes, good question. But do you feel like reading my below answer now? ... lol
Initially I bought a set of +40 offset all around (few months ago). I purchased the tires in a local tire shop (cheapest deal I found with balancing, even better than a good deal I found on ebay then). I drove on these wheels a bit and noticed the front is extremely bouncy. I actually made another thread about this problem - ended up later replacing all struts because the front right was shot. At the same time I noticed bouncing, I also noticed slight vibration on highway. It was probably the bad strut, but at that time I wanted to eliminate any problems with wheel balance, since I just had them done.
So I took the wheels back to the same shop, and... here comes the nightmare...
One older guy must've somehow tied the rim too tight when balancing, because he made a circular scratch on the black paint, in the radius where the lug nuts are. This was very visible, and after the battle with the shop and considering all my options, I decided not to have it repainted because it would never look exactly the same (these were brand new rims). I started looking for a new replacement, and it turns out this was the last set with offset +40 that was available anywhere
Unbelievable, I know, these wheels are still posted on some websites, but I spent the whole day calling every shop I found on the net (probably over 20) that showed these wheels and nobody even had a single one. I called the manufacturer and they said they discontinued this offset and there is none available anywhere. The guy even told me to please stop calling all the shops because each shop then calls them to ask about, and he was sick getting the same calls asking if they have these rims
They still carry the +35 offset, though. So I decided to buy 2 wheels with +35, and if I need to rotate wheels in the future, I'll have to add 5mm spacers in the back for the +40 wheels. If that becomes a problem related to rubbing, I still have the other 2 +40 rims. I can always get that 1 rim repainted and use all +40 rims.
When I drove with those +40 wheels for 2 weeks few months ago, there was no rubbing in front, and rear only slightly rubbed at high bounce with car loaded, but that was on old struts. These new seem a little stiffer, at least for now. Now with +35 the rear wheels are 5mm out more than those I drove with initially, but I don't think the rubbing will be any different than it was before (I haven't had time to test it on highway yet, but on local roads there's no rubbing at all). I'm more concerned what will happen after I rotate the wheels down the road and will then have the fronts pushed out 5mm.
So for now it's a slightly staggered setup.
