    I don't know much about wheels, but will non-PP models require different offsets than the PP models? If so, what would the differences be?

    Thanks in advance!

    Bump?

    Maybe the better question is, is the suspension what causes the differences or the brakes or both?

    The offsets would be different for pp cars because of the larger front caliper clearance. Spoke designs also effect offsets that can fit in general. I believe pp wheels fit non pp just not the other way around. Id contact a wheel vendor of your choice on what offset youll need for a wheel you find you like the look of.

    Thank you for the response. I was hoping it would just be a brake caliper deal. I see so many awesome wheel combos on PPs and I wanted to make sure. I will definitely be calling before ordering, too. Just like to be somewhat informed beforehand

    No problem. Sorry i cant be of more help. If i wasnt buying drag wheels id be all over a set of forgestars. I find myself admiring/drooling over the cf5 and f14s.

    I'm all about the VPS-302's but my wallet said nope. I think if Cloak still has his up for sale in a month or so, I'll try to pick them up. He's only 3.5 hours away.

    I love the F14's, too. But I helped [MENTION=17820]GT P-TREE[/MENTION] put a set on his GTR and he wants to get a set for his GT whenever he decides to stop being a slouch and get one.

    Get em first. You snooze you lose. Besides their is tons of different colors. But if you like those vossens more thats a good option too.
