Default how do i choose a suitable flush rim?

ive saw many hella flush threads and thought they were nice. However, i need to understand / wanna find out how do i determine what offset is suitable? Ie, i wanna know how to achieve a flush look on a certain alignment setting as i know the alignment does affect the appearance. Is there like a guide for different offset catered for different alignment settings and yet achieve the same look?

I agree with Uncle Scotty,

http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show....php?t=1598430

There is no magic answer or formula for a flush fit. Those that use the term "aggressive" "flush" or "hella" are just adjusting wheels for a cosmetic look, usually to the detriment of performance and design.

Year, model, and body style of the car, springs, struts, wheel offset, wheel width, tire size, tire brand, camber, etc ALL affect the fit. Because there are millions of possibilities, you can't just tell us a few of the variables and expect us to tell you what spacer, wheel, or tire to buy.
You only solution is do LOT of research to see what works, what doesn't and make some educated guesses.
After all that, you can achieve the trendy "flush" look.

You want to know what offset you need? Spend your time in the members gallery and just look for the billion "I'm hella flush now WooT!!!!" threads.

Do people forget that this is a technical forum, not the interior/exterior modification forum?
