    Deep dish or not?

    I took my car to a tire shop this morning and discovered I have not one bent wheel, but 2 bent wheels.. both in the front. I currently have TT2's but I am going to buy a set of C6 Vet wheels tonight but I have a question before I actually buy a set. Whats the difference between deep dish and just regular wheels? The offset on both of the wheels say 54mm. Here are the links to the wheels I'm thinking of getting.

    If you look closely at them you will notice that the closer the spokes come to the lip they taper in, creating a dished look. This is pretty much the only way to have deep dished wheels with our cars with keeping the right offset and without moding the fender wells out. I myself love the dished look and will be buying a set of the black c5 deep dish wheels here in a few weeks.

    So do the spokes flex inward or outward?

    they dont flex... they taper inwards to create room for the deep dish lip. Its just a matter of what you think looks better. they should both fit exactly the same.
