No. 7.5 is 1.0 bigger than oem 6.5, so you have 0.5 in and 0.5 out. 9mm is 0.35". By my calcs, that's about 0.15" out on the outside and 0.85" in on the inside.

I personally wouldn't want an offset that far off, regardless of how it might look...you're doing bad things to the geometry of your suspension.
Hmm...because RedNOSCeli has this setup...hmm...i wonder....thanks for the info!

edit: he says its just fine.....you start to rub at 7/8ths of a turn.....so i'll just get these and whatever.....

ok after vast researching i came across a calculator.....and it said:

going from 6.5" with +39 offset to width of 7.5" with +48 offset, The clearance from stut housing to the inside of the wheel will be 22mm LESS & the outside edge of the wheel will EXTEND an extra 4mm

Then if i get wheel spacers of 20mm, then i'd get 2mm LESS from strut and 24mm extra EXTENDED from stock wheel. That's 2.5ish cm from stock wheel, which would look BADASS. It would flow VERY nicely. Only thing is that the spacers are $100/pair so thats a lot.

My questions are: Since my rear tires don't turn...do i need to put spacers in the back too? I would do it anyways, unless you guys tell me other wise. And would the spacers correct the Offset correctly?
