    My first post on any forum..ever lol. Thank y’all for having me.
    To the many of you lucky gents/ladies who have seen the vehicle in person, and are interested in more of a flush look wheel wise..how much room to play is there?
    I’ve decided on the good value Forgestar F14 (stock sizes) in Copper on CMG, but am curious how “extreme” if you will, the offsets May be altered.
    I will see the car on Oct.26th in Grapevine Tx. and I’ve done my daily scouring for new info/images (mostly thanks to your wonderful forum)...but I’d like to hear others input. I am aware these are preproduction vehicles and that many variables will affect the final measurements however it never hurts to have a varied consensus to ponder. 🖖🏻

      I pre-ordered those wheels in carbon flash this week. I can use my factory tires and they changed the offset to push the wheels out more.
      Ok those are definitely a win ... Can you pm the website/model just to get a further idea? Are we certain what the stock offsets are yet?

        This is exactly what I am going to do. The option on the C7 was crazy expensive but I think it looked awesome, especially on a black car, which is what I am getting.

          For those of you going aftermarket, how much of an offset are you looking for to push the wheels further out? Or staying at stock offset? I really like the wheels above and messaged the seller but it looks like the offset will only be about 5-6mm different which I'm debating is enough or not. It translates roughly to about 1/5 of an inch further out. Just posted some pics of the closest I can find of fender over stock wheel to debate if 1/5" is enough. Other than that, price seems great and I like the design. I don't know much about the company though. Click image for larger version

            That green mamba looks lowered. I think proper tire fender gap is also crucial for a great stance.

                I'll be doing after market highly polished chrome. I just like that look with every color.
                I'm partial to smoked/nickel/chrome. Looks good on all colors cars.

                    That's what I have on my Special Edition TL. I agree that they do look good giving the chrome a darker overall appearance.

                      12mm wheel spacers will fix that up nicely.

                          What he said. 8-12mm is the norm on most cars.

                            Don't be afraid to run wheel spacers. There's nothing wrong with them. Racers even use them on race cars. There's always a big debate over if you should and if you shouldn't, but if you do your research you will find there is absolutely nothing wrong with them.

                              MRR claims the offset is proprietary and is not releasing them.
