The Aussies have long been into classic J-Tin with tall, front wheel drive offset wheels like the Volks you linked to. You can see a bunch of photos searching Google. Always looked strange to me...

The combo you're looking at will be sunk in from the fender lip, and will make the car look tall.

With those widths, I'd go closer to zero offset.

Ok ya rite Aus. is like that.

Im close to buying and trying to educate my self with all the measurements and sizes.
I'd have to use one inch thick lug adapters,so that would bring those out more.
So that would bring these closer to a zero offset right?

I could not find link for offset/rim measuring?

I still want a 2 inch drop. 8)

Those Rota wheel offsets are already low.

-13 front is about 1/2 inch closer to the rear lip of the wheel than the front. The clearance issue there will be with the fender and maybe suspension.

Rear offsets probably pretty good, but you will have to measure to be sure

If you are lowering the car, lower first then see what wheels will fit

So don't use a spacer with the Rota wheels.

I wouldn't say that bigger, newer style wheels on older cars is totally representative of Australian car styling, but it does make up an unfortunate percentage, haha. Sadly, they're mostly limited to cheap tyre shop style wheels or Simmons.

I beg your pardon, I didn't mean to generalize all of the Australian car scene in any way. I just meant to say it seemed a common thing to me to see tall, modern wheels on old cars.

Nah, it's true to an extent. :) Most of the older guys that are into older Datsuns/Mazdas/Toyotas have that mentality for the most part. The look can work well if done right, but a lot of the examples seen over here are almost there, but just not quite.
