Hopefully if you have to return you do not encounter that same problem. Hope you can make them work
Thanks, I know they will work for sure. It's just a matter of being able to predict the widest tire possible to fit without rubbing and you can really only do this if you know the exact offset.

Plus I just want to know for my information and to share with others on the board.

All is good, just patiently waiting on the new ride to get here. In the mean time, I'll just

I would never buy wheels from any company that doesn't tell me what the specs are. Further, if they are taking 9 weeks to build the wheel, I should be able to have input on the specs.
These look nice though. If just being nice is alright then these work fine. For my money, I want more pop so these wouldn't work for me.
I've heard a lot of good things about Forgestar reliability and quality though.

Glad you're happy. That's all that matters.

Well technically they did tell me the offsets - twice. Only problem is that both times they told me the offset, they were different by a couple mm, lol.... When you order from Forgestar, they basically say that they will make the wheel and gaurantee that it will be flush with the fender. However, you can tell them any offset you want and they will do it for you. I chose to trust them. The only reason I 'need' to actually know the offsets are to share with the other enthusiasts out there.

Also, my goal is to go for less pop. Less is more for me in the modding world, however the morr I see the Morr wheels, the Morr I want them. Maybe I'll change in a few months.

Man, I'm so torn right now. I wish I would have gotten darker wheels. I'm putting the springs on this weekend and was planning on mounting the wheels next week. Now I'm considering selling these or getting them refinished. Ugh decisions decisions....

Yea, I've decided to go ahead and mount them and see if I can learn to love them. If not, it will cost me $400ish to have them powdercoated here locally to my liking.

If the spring install goes smoothly tomorrow morning, I'll have the tires and wheels mounted tomorrow afternoon

I installed the springs yesterday and drove straight to Discount Tire to have the wheels/tires mounted. I ended up going with 245/35 and 275/30. I couldn't be more happy with the way it turned out. The color of the wheels are perfect for now - I freaked myself out over nothing.

Enjoy a couple of pics I just took - before you expert photographers flame me for my pictures, let me preface and say that I'm not even in the novice category nor do I care to ever be any good. I literally just took some pics, uploaded to flickr and edited w/ their software....

Thanks. I talked to Forgestar again and I feel pretty comfortable that they are 38 front and 47 rear. They are damn near perfect. I think 35 and 45 would have been perfectly fine too b/c there is a tad bit of room... They are the Sports. Perfect height for me. Exactly what I was looking for.

In your opinion, would the 245/275 tire option work on stock suspension if the offsets were 30/35(f/r) on 8.5/9.5(f/r)?

Is the 47 rear allow u to use wider tires? Do u think it will rub if I use 35 rear with 275 tire?

Can u recommend the best setup for this wheels with stock suspension? Tire size and brand, thanks!

If you're riding stock suspension, I think 275 on a 9.5" wheels w/ 35 offset would be ok. It probably wouldn't rub but it would poke out past the fender a bit and look a little silly imo but it probably wouldn't rub due to the car's stock height.
