So I did a quick trial fit of a rear flare on the car. Then placed the max VCOP allowed 255 rubber underneath to see what kind of offset would be needed to be used to make the tyre not look ridiculous.
Looks like it would be mandatory to use the L34/A9X offset of -6.25mm (which is still not quite enough dish for the flare to look appropriate.)
So, with those two parameters determined, I'm wondering if anyone run into any regulatory problems running the L34/A9X offset on a non factory L34/A9X car.
Looks like I'm going to have to get custom wheels made up if I want a descent looking set of -6.25 offset wheels in Torana pattern. To get a noice set of Japanese made wheels in this configuration I'm going to be up for thousands. So, I'd hate to fork out all that money only to find I'm going to run into hastles with the plod.
In addition to plod troubles, I'm also wondering about increased load on the wheel bearings. Anyone had a bearing failure due to offset?
