I want a set of staggered wheels, since Gravana isn't around anymore where can I get a set without going to HRE or something similar?

widening would work if done right or get a custom rim done or find a rim then have it machined to our bolt pattern thats what i did, i bought these rims and had them send them out to the machine shop down the street and make them 5x110 they were originally 5x100/114 so the opened up the 5x100 these rims are 18x8 and i did have to put a tiny spacer about 1/8th of an inch in the front because of the caliper touching the rim now it clears it but just enough it is maybe a space for 2 pieces of paper thick to fit in and yeah heres the pictures they look like the Gravana J2s but in stock size not staggered all i need to do is get new center caps or black these out, if you go the way i did and the shop has a machine shop they work with itll be great, and they had my rims ready from when i paid to on my car ready to go in 2 hours! anyway sorry for the long rant heres the pictures! :willy:

I've been very satisfied with weldcraft wheels in Michigan for my widening needs.

Those CCW's are exactly the offset and lip I want... except in a BBS LM-style wheel. And I'd also like to keep my price to no more than $300 a rim. I found wobble lug nuts, which are supposed to let you run a 5x112 wheel on a 5x110 pattern. Luckily, 5x112 is the size Mercedes and VW use, so I should be able to find a staggered sets fairly easily. Thanks for the suggestions, I'll let you know what happens later on.

Ok, I found a set I really like. TSW Carthage.



They are 5x112 fitment. Fronts are available in 19x8 +45 (1.5" lip) and rears are 19x9.5 either +35 or +53 (3" lip). So, I'm thinking +53 with an 8-10mm spacer, hub rings, and wobble bolts. Bam, on my black GXP it would look pretty sexy. Paint the calipers yellow (Porsche carbon ceramic style).

How about this: has anyone done an 18" front/19" rear like Corvettes?
