Default Rays TE37s offset Question, +12 or +22 or ??

Hi everyone,

Fristly, am enjoying this forum immensely, I have the 2009 model w/18" wheels.

Just have a Q about the Rays Engineering Volk Racing model TE37 in matt black. Just love that tough look on the monterey blue colour.

Anyway - just wanted to check what offset to get, the +12 or +22 or ??

Keep in mind that I'm looking at either AP Racing calipers and vented rotors w/ SS brake lines and so forth or maybe the Brembos in the near future.
Is that even worthwhile? the Akebono's that Nissan use are not bad in their own right...for track time, I mean

I am in Sydney Australia and love what you bro's in the states are doing with your Z's.

Hey Gee, welcome! you might first wanna post this in the right section. There is a wheels/tire section and you will definitely get much more replies there. As far as the offset goes, the default TE setup that most here get is 19x9.5 +22 f, 19x10.5 +12 r. They will clear the big brake kit. Keep us posted and post up some pics!!

That's the setup that Ryan @ Forged did for me. And you're right they do look good on the blue, don't they?

I've been doing some figuring while trying to figure out what setup I want for winter wheels and tires. Using the standard and sport package setups, I calculated the distance from the mounting surface to the outside edge of the tire (let's call that 'd'). So here's some math that may help you figure out what you want:

Standard Front (18x8, offset +43, 225/50R18)
d = 225 / 2 - 43 = 69.5 mm
Standard Rear (18x9, offset +15, 245/45/R18)
d = 245 / 2 - 15 = 107.5 mm
Sport Package Front (19x9, offset +47, 245/45R19)
d = 245 / 2 - 47 = 75.5 mm (6 mm further out than standard wheels and tires)
Sport Package Rear (19x10, offset +30, 275/35R19)
d = 275 / 2 - 30 = 107.5 mm (same as standard wheels and tires)

So just decide how you want your wheels to look relative to the standard or sport package. For instance if you want 245s in the front and 275s in the back and you want both front and back to sit 1/2" (13 mm) further out than the sport package, you should be looking for:

New Front Wheels (19x9, 245/45R19)
245 / 2 - 75.5 - 13 = +34 offset
New Back Wheels (19x10, 275/35R19)
275 / 2 - 107.5 - 13 = +17 offset

Hope that helps. Of course, I just made all that up so if anyone sees a flaw in my logic feel free to correct.

Also keep in mind that the bearings have been designed with the center point of the tire contact patch at a certain location relative to the mounting surface so the further away from that point you end up, the more stress there will be on the bearings.

Are those Volks or Varrstoens? It only looks like the Varrstoens because of the center caps.
