Thumbs up me too!

I think that's the stock offset (only 1/2 inch wider)
I'm really thinking about those too!

Stock offset is 53. And all I can say about konig is that they are cheap and you get what you pay for.

Stock offset on the 16x6.5" wheels is +55mm. And as above stock offset on the 16x7" RS wheels is +53mm.

That being said 16x7" in +48mm should be no probs. I have no experience with Konig wheels myself.

The Rotas have less "spokes." The Konigs have 12- and they are noticeably different when you look at the bolt area, etc......

I've seen plenty of bent high-dollar wheels. What are you trying to say?

I have 18" Konig Rated R's right now, and they are really nice Konig definitely makes a decent rim....I too was looking at those drivers for my racing wheels...
