i want molded in fender flares on my celi but don't want to roll around on adapters or spacers...

how do you measure the offset required to fill the fenders so the rims don't look hidden...or does anyone know the right offset?

and does anybody know where to get custom offset rims...
probably pretty pricey...

I would also recommend a wide rim to help fill the space and not rely just on the offset.

As shown in this illustration, the smaller the offset value is the further the wheel will stand out from the car.
