Default Manufacturing question? What offset would you guys like us to make

We just launched our new Vossen Forged VF-086 wheel this week. This is a 3 piece forged wheel and is built to order so it can be made in any requested offset and widths.

But we are about to start making the one piece version of this wheel and would like to know what offsets 370z owners would like us to make. We will be making a 20x9 and 20x11. What offsets would you like us to make?? (we dont want it to be too aggressive and require any fender modification)

Here are some 3D pics of the new forged VF-086. The one piece version will look identical.

20x11 +20
20x9 +25

I've put 20mm spacers on my stock 19's and there is plenty of clearance, no rubbing issues, and it looks like it could go another 5mm max.

But I'm still looking for a nice lightweight set of 19's (19x9.5 & 19x11)

The angles for this wheel might be to sharp for the 370z's lines, I think it would look better if the spokes were slightly rounded.
Just my opinion.

+20 on the rear MIGHT be a tad too much, +25 will be safer, or you can split the difference and do +22

+25 up front should be perfect. I ordered +24 on my 19x9.

so you don’t think there will be any rubbing issues with a 20x11 +22? I really need to make sure of this since we sell to a lot of dealerships and if the fitment rubs they will send it right back to me. They would not even consider rolling or modifying the fender.

The 370Z comes with rolled fenders from the factory.

You might see if Mike at DDM will throw a 10mm spacer on his temporarily and see how it looks. his street setup is 19x11 +33, and I know he said an extra 5mm is no problem.

I can't say for sure, but I think +25 will be safe, and depending on tires size you could sneak in +22

IMO the back is perfect. But the front realy should be a 9.5+30. you have enough wheel in the back for 305's but only enough for 255's up front.

275's fit on the 9 inch wide up front without too much bulge. 305's actually fit on the stock 10" wide pretty well too.

Yea they do. But they do bulge a little. And most people who are runing or are going to run these sizes usually go 265/305 or 275/305. And the measure rim width for those is 9.5/11

i think hes gonna have to go 255/30/20 in the front with a 9 inch rim and a 305/25/20 in the rear with an 11 inch rim if he wants to keep the same height on both wheels.....that also shouldnt mess up the speedometer to bad
on the offset , a +25 in the front and +22 in the back , would that keep the tire/rim flush with there respective fenders ?
