find a website BB about your car. yes there is a "staggared" setting, it's called offset. no i don't know what it is.

BUT don't just get big wheels to get big wheels, if your gonna change wheels ge wheels that help performance. those wheels prolly weigh a ton and will take away handling of your car.

don't be a poseur.

i recommend www.tirerack.com for wheels/tires.

lol.......axis wheels are way lighter than stock (size comparison). my JIC full coilovers are awesome, so i figure i should see what was available as wider/lighter, but functional, tires/wheels, that look nice while serving thier grippy purpose.

edit....the 18's are 3lbs heavier than stock...but then again, i'm going from 16" to 18"...

my car has a staggered offset which means my rear tires are wider than my front...

most car websites do not offer staggered fitment on thier website..its a "call us and we'll help you" type thing.

so, based on the picstures i've seen....this one was the lightest/and most functional. i dont need a 3" lip, and then have to roll my fenders...

i juistr wanted something a little wider for grip (265 width as opposed to OEM 225), without getting heavier.
