The et 45 is offset. It's a measurement of fitment in regards to the distance from the wheel hub


Stock offset works for me lol. Don't need hellastance.

Why not get wheels that are 5x112?

People use wobble bolts all the time for the conversion you're talking about. Very rarely do people use adapters for that. Also, depends on the offset and width of the wheels you're looking at...you might not even be able to use adapters.

Offset for stock wheels is in the 50's IIRC. Good luck with that and any wheel wider than stock.

I've been pretty happy with my combo. It's not the shortest throw but I don't like the super short ones anyways, asking for trouble if you ask me.

I also disagree here. It's a nice piece but way too short and notchy for me.
