    Need help with offsets!!!!! :S

    Ok so i now own a set of OEM ferrari 599 wheels I want to know if these will fit my mr2 360 replica.
    Pic of wheel


    Here are the specs on the wheels:

    Front = 8 x 19 et43.5 (tyres 245/40/19)
    Rear = 11 x 20 et 63.8 (no tyres yet) The original tyres were 305/35/20)



    Im not 100% sure of the oem wheel sizes on the mr2 (1990) Mr2 sw20. I think they were:

    front = 6 x 14 offset 45
    rear = 7 x 14 offset 45

    Obviously i assume ill still be using spacers some where??
    Can someone help me on this?? I'd love to use these wheels or else i'll be sellin them.

    Thanks, Daz

    If you own the rims and the car, then go outside and check. You can run the math all you want, but there is nothing like the physical check. Jack up the car, pull off the wheels and hold them in place. Since the 360 is much wider than the MR2, you are going to need to widen the suspension or put in a spacer. Non of this can be done out of the car. Get the wheel where you like it and then take measurements.

    Thanks all for the help. My car is not with me, it is with Dave Jones currently being painted so i cant check it. I've been advised by Dave that that they are too big. I'm just gonna use the ones i have got already (430 replica). So im now selling the Ferrari 599 wheels. Anyone interested? Im letting them go for a bargain.

    Here are the specs on the wheels:

    Front = 8 x 19 et43.5 (tyres 245/40/19)
    Rear = 11 x 20 et 63.8 (no tyres yet) The original tyres were 305/35/20)

    The front ones have P Zero 245/40/ZR19 with only 3000 miles. The rears have no tyres.
