Logan(rhoadblock) is running similar specs on his rear wheels on his MS6. That being said the rear end and fenders on the MS6 are not the same due to the rear diff and would be almost impossible to run those on a MZ6 without some over fenders or amazing pull + camber.

Just my opinion..... never seen anyone try something that low an offset it on an NA 6.

what you thinking of doing? that all the way around or something different up front?

Won't fit. You'll tear your front fenders off and you'll need a HUGE pull on the rear with a stretched tire to fit.

yeah I know who you are talking about.

18x10 with a 50(IIRC)...... thats only a 1/2" smaller and a huge reduction in offset.

This. Plus, he was running a stupid stretch (225s) IIRC.

Has this been proven? Are there side by side pictures confirming this with measurements?

To OP...not going to say no but you should know youre going to have to stretch and adjust camber. I wouldn't recommend going that aggressive so quickly. Pushing the boundaries is really a process and its hard to just dive right into it.

its got some rims and some blacked out stuff..

To straighten things out, my offset is +44 and the tire size is 235/40. So, you'd be like 16mm poking out further than I am. Unless you go with some ridiculous stretch & camber, I don't think it should be too probable.

You'd be exactly 16mm out further than this dude.



Just buy mine. Friends don't let friends have bad fitment.
