  4. Anyone go from a VW GTI to a BRZ?

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    I was on a waiting list for a BRZ in spring 2012. i passed it up for a VW GTI. Obviously, the GTI has an advantage in practicality. Its fairly entertaining to drive and is comfortably finished. Alas, I still yearn for RWD and oversteer. I thinking of selling the GTI and getting the BRZ. Has...

    I understand what offset is but when shopping for wheels how do I know how an aftermarket wheel compares? In other words, what is the offset for the stock wheels? I couldn't find the info in "everything yopu wanted to know..." thread.
