Question 5Zigen make rims for us

Does anyone know if 5Zigen makes wheels that have a proper offset for an MY00 RS? Does the offset change when you lower the car because I am looking to lower the car at least an Inch and a half so what would I need to not rub tires on my wells?

The offset doesn't lower the car. Get an aftermarket set of springs and that should do the trick. The offset has to do with the how deep into the rim the rotr goes, I believe.

No, no what I mean is does the offset needed to keep the tires from rubbing change if you lower the car and what offset would I need?

The offset doesn't need to be changed when you lower a car. Make sure you get wheels that have the proper offset and you will be fine. My car is lowered two inches and I have no problem with rubbing.

My 5-Zigen 5zr Copse rims are on order as we speak. It is coming on the slow boat so I won't receive it til July sometime. 5-Zigen does have them in a 48mm offset which will be fine for our cars. Their bronze model are on backorder for a few months still.
