Rim Offset help needed

What would be the best offset to use on a 90 185. The stock rims just seem to be in the wheel well to much.

Tim,
The stock offset is 39 and stock width is 6.5
What is the width of your new rim?
You can figure the new offset using this site:

Most have to install spacers in the rear to achieve that filled out wheel well look. I have 20 mm H&R spacers which require installing longer studs. There is a 25mm bolt on kit as well, depends on your current offset. [/quote]

Gary, I just mounted some super stud ice racing tires on my stock wheels, and using the measuring gauge on the tire machine, I saw them to be 7" wide.

Ji,
My 7.5 inch OZ measured almost 8 inch from inner lip to outer lip.
I have stock wheels sitting in my apartment with me right now and it wrote 15x6-1/2 JJ39 on the wheels. May be the mounting width is 6.5 :shrug:
