  • Best Team Dynamics pro rtace 1.2 offset

    Just a question for those who know about such things.
    As regards theseTeam Dynamics wheels 18x8 for Astra vxr would you reccommend offset 35 or offset 40? I know offset 35 means the wheels are slightly more visible (ie further outin arch) but is there any other effects ie handling, etc
    Thanks for the advice

    Think they're generally ET38 unless you have some made up.

      I've got the standard 19"s on my car mate but also got 17mm hub centric wheel spacers and has made a massive improvement to the handling if that helps

            I'd go 35 for a wider track.

                  Tyre profile is different from wheel offset.

                        You wont save that much mate, i was a grand in total for the wheels and tyres and it alters the handling of the car so its now leading to me having to lower it and fit a rarb to see if that makes it any better.

                        I much prefered the handling on the 19s...

                        Mind you Jase of of here is selling his Td's but think they may need two tyres soonish...

                        You'll fetch 500-600 for your existing wheels...

                          What changes have you found. would be interested to hear your comments
                          I read an interesting article in Redline regarding lighter wheels only negative aspect seemed to be wheels spin easier as less inertia to overcome. Their test even found car 0.5sec faster 60 to 100.
                          They sugested loseing 1kg from unsprung weight was equivalemt of shaving 10kg from body of car

                            I see you have a diff and springs mate so it may be a transformation on your, im finding the steering snappy and yes lighter but its not a lighter i enjoy! As for take off ive never been one for fast take offs so i get it going then put the foot down so not had wheels spinning much. I have without a doubt lost some top end as well...
