Default Advan RZ 18x9 +45 & +35 Face question

Does the face change at all between these two wheels or is it just the pad that changes?

I love the look of the +35 but +45 will allow me to have 255's on there so i want to know if the +45's face is identical to the +35?

Thanks in advance!

Yes the face changes. If you run the +45s you're doing it the right way, the other way is wrong.

Thank goodness you got that bit in there! I mean, if you just answered his question that would make it seem like you were being helpful instead of trying to cram your aesthetic preferences down everyone's throat.

It's not only an aesthetics opinion.

Yes the face does change and Byzantium is right the 45mm offset is a better offset for a subie, mind you im saying this as a person running 18x9 rota gforces (advan reps) with a 35mm offset.

From everything i've seen and been led to belive by some others the face on the RZ doesn't change at all between 35 and 45. On the RS it does change a lot between the wheels but the RZ is different.

Below is a 18x9 +45 RZ



and a 18x9 +35 RZ

FYI everyone.

I emailed Advan directly and received this response.

Hi Alex,

Both the +45 and +35mm offset will have the same GTR face,
and the spokes will have the exactly the same look.
Not sure what model STi you have but we would recommend
the +45mm, as +35mm will not clear the guards on the STi.

Best regards,
Tats Kano

I have the Advan RZ in 18x9 +45. And they face is no different than the 18x9+35 that a friend has. So i can back this up as well.

ok so the face is the same and the 45mm offset will be easier to fit /thread
