Best results from testing:18 inch wheel offset? Looking for after market wheels and want exact offset.
Standard is 48 mm; we've found 40 mm is least you can go without threatening interference with a 26" diameter tire. (standard 25.97")18 inch wheel offset? Looking for after market wheels and want exact offset.
Why can't I edit the typing errors in original post?Best results from testing:
235/45x17 tires on 17x8/40 mm wheels that clear calipers; stock 225/45x18/48 mm offset. BC is 5x4.5' (114.2MM)
Repalace front springs with 1-1.5" lowering springs AND disconnect front antisway bar one side only. Removal unnecessary.
Replace front brake pads with HAWK HPS pads for Honda FIT after filing the shape to match; its not difficult nor time intensive. Yeah the SE has a front pad very close to the 2011-12 Honda Fit !. And provides much better braking.
Review results "Sonata singing in the rain at VIR" on you tube. Thats a driving rain with speeds exceeding 110 mph..Handling defects show up quckly.
Acceleration is improved, no change in mpg, and speedometer error less than 1.5 mph at 60 mph. Check C&D's comparo this month. If you ignore subjective 'results' and concentrate on measured data the SE is a clear winner. C&D's butt, hands, and eyes just never have matched mine.
Just out of curiosity,why do you want to match offset?
