Uh yeah it's Blue.

Default Spacer Math, Please Help

I'm sure I'm not looking at the big picture on this but please provide any pros or cons to this.

Scenario.... 04 WRX, I use the Kics spacers to convert from 5x100 to 5x114. They are hub centric and come with new studs. Spacer is 15mm.

I buy a set of Advan Racing RS wheels in a 5x114, 18x9 variety at a low offset of 29 with the GTR Face cuz I'm a baller like that right.

29+15= 44 offset right? or very wrong?

Thanks for any and all inputs.

Very, Very wrong. It's 29-15=14. You'd end up with a +14 offset. The more you move the wheel move out from the hub, the lower the offset.

Got it, so I would need to start with a very high offset wheel in order to get back to the 40s.

Thanks for the help.

Yeah. You'll never find a wheel with something like a +55-60 offset. Just get wheels that fit your bolt pattern. There are a lot out there.
