Im looking to put different wheels on my gxp and I wanted to make sure I got the correct offset. I wanna put +40’s all the way around it.

I’d really just like to have two more oem 8†wheels, but I cant find any that are cheaper than a whole set of new wheels.

If you look at aftermarkets that are listed as fitting they are usually 35mm which would look fine. I just got around to putting 2 more fronts on mine and i can honestly say it looks good but the bottom edge of the rear wheels stick out quite a bit. Will for sure spray rocks onto the back bumper3e18ab546ccd6d6fdc1c94e254e605f6.jpge850044adeb97421a6a5cae6f4f631b8.jpg95a81c1bfbc4f21fff8cae92f327ce92.jpg

It depends on the back spacing, keep in mind the factory wheel theres no lip so theres quite a bit of of backspacing. The wheels i was looking at had a lip which i want but came across stocks so had to jump on them

An 8†wheel with a +40mm offset has a deeper backspace than the same wheel with +35mm offset. The stock 8†wheels have a +40mm offset and stick out borderline too far when mounted on the rear of the car. +35mm wheels would stick out too far for my liking.

 

The 7†stock rear wheels have a +55mm offset but have almost exactly the same backspace as the 8†front wheel with the +40mm offset. Its a little confusing, but its a fact. This is why they can be rotated without any inside interference. The back fit is the same.
