Quick Question Re 15" wheels with standard offset

I had read recently here that if you get 15" with the same offset as stock wheels, you could still use your stock struts and not wear out the bearings, therefore not having to resort to change out to the tii set up.

I am looking at switching out my 14" BBS RS for some 15" so I can get a better tire selection and narrower profile.

Could someone shed some light on this, I have already rebuilt the struts and brakes and I would really not want to do that again.

Hope you all have a great 4th tomorrow.

The 2002 standard struts and bearings will stand up to a real beating.

I raced on them for 4 years, and regreased them every 4 weekends,

and replaced them about once a year with no problems.

Don't worry about it.

Unless you get 10" wide rims, 4" flares and cantilevers.

Then it might be a problem.
