I'm exploring options on wheel offsets - I'm not trying to get 'hellaflush', but want to push the wheels out more as they are very sunken on my '15 S60RD. I also plan to run H&R springs for a mild drop. I really like Connor's S60 wheel offset setup in post 196 of this thread:
If I read correctly, he's at effectively -20mm offset from stock in the front and -26mm offset from stock in back (ET45 8" wheels PLUS 10mm spacer front and 16mm spacer rear). And he's pretty low on KWs.
Then I'm comparing that to Satchel's V60 setup which is 8" wheels at ET42 (-13mm offset from stock front and rear): see post 141 at this thread:
Satchels setup is not quite as flush as Connor's, but it looks pretty close. It sure doesn't look like he'd have an additional 13 mm of room to move that rear wheel outward and still be able to tuck tire, which is what I believe Connor is doing on his S60. I know pictures/angles/lighting can make these gaps hard to judge, and maybe that explains the difference I'm seeing, but I have to wonder if this is an apples to apples comparison. ie: Is the stock track width the same for pre-face lift ('11-'13) P3 cars as the post-face lift ('14+) cars? And is the track different between S60 and V60? Or maybe I'm just thick and missing something else here. Thoughts?
