19x10 et20 wrapped in 225/35/19 HELP!

hey guys, so as some of you may know my car has been in surgery for the past couple months (progress report here: http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthr...727200&page=17 ... anyway with that said have a quick question. currently i am running in the rear a vmr vb3 19x10 et38 wrapped in a 235/35/19, with that said am going to wrap it in a 225/35/19 and drop the offset to et20, as i currently have rogue engineering 12mm spacers with extended lug bolts am wondering if i could pair those with a set of 6mm non-hub-centric from a local wheel shop and use the same extended lug bolts giving me the 18mm of space i want. do you think this will be okay? i think i'm going to call turner motorsport on monday and ask them but think i'll be able to get at least eight full turns of thread into the hub nevertheless, opinions please!

I think it's duable...but not safe.... just spend extra cash and get hubcentric spacers in the mm you want

That isn't safe. If you are going to stack spacers, they should both be hub centric.

I would not recommend stacking the spacers and running non-hub centric spacers on top of that... That could be extremely dangerous.

I would recommend purchasing proper length lug bolts with the proper thickness spacer.

Good way to smash up your wheels. But to each his own?

Why?


Aye aye aye. Just be careful man... that's all i can say. It's a sure fire way to smash up your rim, scuff the lip, and blow a tire.

To me, it just looks like you couldn't afford proper tires. Not to mention it's dangerous. I understand stretching tires a tad to get flusher fitment, avoiding rubbing, etc but I just never understood this level of stretch. Then again, keep in mind wdeerfield that it's all personal preference and, if tyler is comfortable with the potential dangers and costs involved, more power to him. Just not my thing.

Why not buy fancy schmancy rims that will go with the rest of your insane project and then just protect them with reasonably stretched tires?
