    18" Penta's

    I got the chance to buy a set of Vauxhall Penta 18'' Alloys.
    But im a bit worried as the offset is ET37.
    Thought the common rule was offset's between ET40 & ET49.

    I know the rim is 7.5" wide which is a good thing and they are wearing the right size 215/35/18 tyres.
    I got FK coilovers coming from the Group Buy and I want to go fairly low but also dont want them to rub or catch etc.
    Will i need to arch modify.......

    Are they worth buying or shall i not bother ? ? ? Opinions please....
    (My car is a 3dr Astra 2.2 Hatchback)

    how low do you want to go? Shouldn't be an issue with them tyres unless you want the car touching the ground.

    If you don't buy them, i know someone who may

    my 17" are 35 offset


    and in my opinion they sit much better as they are forced further out of the arch+ fuller arches

    dont know what it is lowered by but i can say arches are standard (untouched) and the wheels are wrapped in 215/35 18 tyres
