Just gathering some info on some stuff

16x8 with offsets of either 15, 20, or 30. Ideally I'm looking for a more aggressive stance, but where is the point where its too much and places more stress on the bearing than necessary.

thanks

30 is the closet to the original, which is 37
With that being said, 30 would be flush, or with a little poke. Offset is not my forte

I wouldn't worry about your bearings unless you're talking about getting ridiculous with the offset/poke.

An 8" wide wheel with a 30mm offset will stick out 20mm more than the stock speedlines, which are only 7" wide. The 20mm offset option will stick out 30mm more.

Play with your options:

Wow, if you are thinking about new wheels, you must have fixed the worn out rear differential mount, the leaking valve cover gasket that's eating your plug wires, fixing your hi beams, and replacing/rear the rear calipers so your car can pass inspection this month...that and how you plan on paying for the wheels?

It's ok to dream, but Michael your Dad and I have said this 100 times, the reality is that you need to fix what needs to be done to keep the car running, since its its older than you and needs some major maintenance, otherwise you'll have the best looking non-running Audi sitting on the side oft the road or on a ramp truck.

yikes... gonna have to agree with Pete. I have been postponing wheels for years now... only because i have had to repair so much stuff...

Its your car and your prerogative, but still.

* fixed it all and inspected, minus the caliper rebuild :p So I can continue the dreaming. I figured for the wheels I'd be going with the saleen reps, 17x9 , although if I can stuff 17x10 in the rear that'd be great. Unsure about that though, I don't want to use spacers, not too sure how I feel about them, Also the whole staggered setup on awd I'm not sure if that effects much. Only reason is I found a killer deal for all four wheels and tires, but as a staggered set. I'm probably more on the side of trying to source 17x9s all around and keep it simple.

They have them in 17x9 , just using that for pic reference. I think they would look amazing on the coupe, probably not going chrome though, I'm not a fan of the so shiny wheel and having to clean them every other day.

That much rubber will tax all the 20 year old bushings and bearings, not to mention anything wrong with alignment will cause tramlining.

im going to be going 17x10et25 with the 10th anniversary Mustang replica wheels for my coupe when i get the cash.

143$ each and im not lowered so will be easy to run.

I wont need spacers either.

I also found some aluminum racing wheels from a mustang that are 15x8 et11 and i want to put those on my car too. mmmmmmmmmmmmmm
