I don't remember what the offsets were, but that wasn't the problem. The spokes had too much arc (to maximize the lip), so the spokes wouldn't clear the calipers. I tried 3 different wheels before I found a set that did clear the calipers.

Sounds crazy, does it get annoying after a while? It must be loud in the car too.

I think he is confusing the cats with the premuffler / resonator

i might be, im not sure, but the CEL is not on. I just took off the main piping which consisted of 2 resonator looking canisters which eventually molded into a bigger resonator looking canister. I assumed the first 2 canisters were the cats.

Hmm, personally I think stock looks better. If you plan to put anyone in the back seat, I would think you'd rub the tires AND the rims.

So it doesn't rub. It would ride like a rock - even with four people. I guess there are tradeoffs.

fyi bubba, it doesnt ride like a rock at all. I have no rubbing and i have the coilovers set to medium so its a perfect setting IMO. No tradeoffs here.

Just curious, is it not possible to fit a wheel wider than the stock 18" wheels on our car?
