Brothers, this is a question. I just had an alignment then i decided to put in new wheels with more aggressive offset after a few weeks. Do i need to get another alignment? The offset change is no more than 5mm. What do our brothers think?

If the change is only 5mm then that's not an "aggressive" offset change - shouldn't affect your alignment.

alignment is usually only necessary if u change the height.. not the width.

BOL

Doug L. is on a distinguished road
I agree with the others. I just added 5mm spacers to my car to fill out the wheel wells after new springs and an alignment. Per my dealer (Brumos Porsche) no realignment is necessary. However, as stated previously, if you drop the height you will need an alignment.

does it ever come to a point that the offset change neccesitates an alignment. for those who installed the avant garde ruger mesh with its very aggressive 45 and 51 offset, did you not experience any handling issues?
