    Wheels and their settings

    Hi i am going to have a look at a set of wheels from a honda. Im not sure with honda it is tho. But im just wondering if anybody on here knows if they will fit. They are 4 stud like mine, but i have been told something about an ET settings that i have to be careful of. What is this and how do i find out what they are on the wheel?

    Hope you understand this lol. Cheers

    It is often marked on the rear of the wheel.

    If you plan to lower the car then sticking between ET40-50 is best, anything much higher or lower can scrub the arches (inner or outer) partly depending on tyre size and the actual offset. Lower ET will sit further out from the car, higher ET will sit further in. Generally the lower ET's look better than the higher ones but it is personal preference too.

    If these have a lower ET, will they fall off or anything? or will it be ok? Also i dont plan on lowering the car, what is the lowest et setting you would advise?

    They won't fall off, but legally the tyre tread cannot sit outside the arch, so much lower than ET35 and it'll be a problem unless you fit stretched tyres. And you will lower it

    If you have issues with rubbing then you can get the arches rolled, something I seriously need to do as my ET35's rub on corners

    Nope, same wheel nuts for me from my original alloys.

    Arch rolling is £100+ for all 4 arches it seems.
