What et are the wheels ?

whats et

Hi, et = offset of the wheel eg, 18inch, 8j, et 42, should be stamped on inside of your wheel (not tyre) :D

If the et is 40 or less, then this is your problem.

WoW, Thats your problem Et 35 :o

Have a look down/from the top of your arch (stand over the wheel) if you can see the tyre coming out from the arch, you will not pass the MOT, when coming to MOT time :o

You have been sold the wrong et35, someone tryed to do this to me, saying everything will be ok :angry:

i'm running 38mm offset on 8x19s on the front... but theres quite alot of arch fettling :winky:

I'd probably of gone back and demanded 40-45mm et atleast

On full lock I hear scrubbage I have 19's

The numbers on the tyre are 215/35ZR19 85W

I have no idea what the offset is, do I need spaces etc? I can't find the numbers on the wheel which is annoying me lol would this tell me the offset?

Sum times I hear strange sounds coming from there..lol Not fallen off so far though

Update on me just squeezed under the car, it says Offset +40 i believe is that ok?

Hi,

Nice Alloys wheels B) in the picture.

It sounds as if there sticking out so spacers will make them stick out even more and will cause more problems.

The tyre could be rubbing on the plastic wheel arch insert.

From what ive read the inside of the alloy wheel can safely be skimmed by 3mm,that will allow the alloy wheel to live slightly more inside of the wheel arch.

If you can find a good engineering firm they could sort it out for you.

Chips..

    • All-new Lexus RX: luxury expressed in interior design simplicity
      Lavish details and flourishes are not necessarily the best way to express luxury. A “less is more” approach with design simplicity can be a much more effective way to communicate high quality, as witnessed in the interior of the all-new Lexus RX

    • 10 years of Lexus design: from spindle grille to spindle body
      After 10 years as a defining style feature of every new Lexus model, the famous spindle grille is undergoing a transformation. In tune with a new era of electrified vehicles, the distinctive shape is evolving into a new “spindle body,” as seen on the upcoming new generation Lexus RX SUV and the all-electric RZ.

      The spindle grille has been an unmistakeable Lexus feature since it was first revealed on the LF-Gh concept model of 2011, the basis for the fourth generation GS executive saloon that was launched the following year. Since then, it has been constantly adapted to suit the character of each successive Lexus model, with different mesh patterns, dimensions and finishes.


      Speaking at the time of the grille’s debut, the then Head of Lexus Kiyotake Ise said: “You should be able to identify a car as a Lexus immediately… Instant visual recognition, for example, is the reason behind our spindle grille. It may look aggressive at first glance, that’s intentional, but it also conveys its boldness with sophistication and elegance.”


      It has progressed to become a hallmark expression of Lexus’s L-finesse design, adopted not only for road-going cars, but also incorporated in the futuristic Skyjet spacecraft created for the Lexus-supported movie Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets and adopted as a design motif in the Loft, the award-winning Lexus and Brussels Airlines lounge at Brussels Airport.


      Today, the original grille concept is the starting point for a more radical application of the spindle shape in which it becomes an integral part of the vehicle’s overall design. This “spindle body” approach is part of the Lexus Next Chapter design for the all-new RX, where the grille is reinterpreted as a seamless unit that flows into the bodywork. The lower section retains a mesh pattern, while the upper section takes in the lower edge of the bonnet; the Lexus emblems sits at the centre of the spindle’s high pinch-point.


      The same concept has been applied to the RZ 450e. As a battery electric vehicle, this requires less cooling than a car with a conventional engine, so the grille has been dispensed with, giving the designers greater freedom. Nonetheless, the spindle shape remains prominent in a central front panel, finished in the car’s body colour. Its impact is heightened by the adjacent frontal areas being contrast-finished in black, the low bonnet line and more boldly shaped front wings.

      On both models, the spindle generates lines that flow back from the front of the car through the bonnet and headlamp units to create a strong and distinctive frontal appearance, reinforcing the brand-defining ambitions of the original concept.
