Re: E series rims on AU
Yep, it did look good. I've got Bob Jane scouring the country for a pair of 17x8 Hockenheim R's with AU offset for the front - not hopeful though.
The E series wheels can be modified by cutting 25mm off the mounting face/hub, then welding up the holes and redrilling them with a new taper depth. But the wheel place I went to did not recommend this, as each part of the process has the potential to reduce the strength of the rim, plus it was going to cost about $195 per rim to do. Hoping I can get new ones for not too much more than that.
