2 weeks late...but the girl has new summer shoes!

Well, just came back from the shop and I'm pretty happy with them.
(Judging by the way they blend in @TORQUERULES , I may just bag the springs idea....maybe )

Niche "Targa" 19x8.5 / 35mm offset
245/40ZR19
Offset brings it a tiny bit past flush with the fenders but no biggie at all.
It's definitely gonna suck going back to the 16's come winter *cry

That looks really good! I wouldn't mess with it to be honest. It sits really nice on those shoes.

Ya you can do all the research you want but nothing is going to be close to the actual wheels on the. That’s why I was so eager to see yours haha!
I’m tending to agree with you about leaving it at that. Sometimes less IS more! The Oversteers were 50/50 with the Targas for sure though.
A little more concave than the Targas but, overall would have been pretty happy with either.
The only deciding factor was that the shop gave me a great deal on the Targas with less delivery time (ironically delayed).

Thank you! The more I look at them the more I love them lol.
I literally knew nothing about rims and offsets and blah blah...just “wheeeeel”...”tiiiiires”...durp.
This forum seriously helped narrow down the plethora of options so the posts and pics are greatly appreciated when spending that kind of cash. Criticism or otherwise.

Tell me about it. It definitely pays to shop everywhere for deals and such. Or more to the point, a shop that won't try to constantly overkill-sell you.
I found a lot of good deals in the States IF I lived there, but by the time it would get to me in Canada with all the fees and duty it would be just the same, or more, as ordering locally.
Frustrating lol.
