Hey John,
Sorry but that was the best that I could do with the equipment, and conditions that I had to work with at the time.

Cheers,

PS- I should probably wash the rims before weighing them too, huh?

yeamans17,
Like hotwheelz said, the OEM offset is 55mm, however some GD3 owners report using offsets of 40mm without issues. I don't know what the minimum is, but I can tell you what I have experienced.
For what it's worth, during extreme cornering loads at my last AutoX event, I found my tires scrubbing the inside front fender well lips, way more than I could endure. I was running Kosei K1 TS 14x6 38mm offset wheels, mounted with Kumho Ecsta V710 205/55R14 tires at the time.
Prior to purchase, I anticipated that running this combo might pose a problem. Regardless, I took a chance, and ordered them anyway. I was hoping that the slightly smaller diameter of the 14" rims would give me enough clearance. In practice however, I found that running 14x6 38mm offset wheels, on my GD3, just didn't suit my "enthusiastic" driving style. Maybe I could get away with running a set of 195/55R14 tires, but that would mean giving up some valuable "contact patch." Maybe increasing the ride height would work, but that would mean raising the "CG." I don't know if "rolling" the fender lips would give enough room, I haven't tried that yet.
Anyway, I just thought I'd throw this at you, just so you know.
