    Wheels are great. The body work is bulky and doesn't do the car justice.

    Very Nice!

    Three questions:

    Lowered?
    What are the offsets on the wheels?
    Who's rear lid spoiler?

    At some point, I'm going to do all three to my DB9 and I really like the stance here.

    Only his rear is lowered on H&R springs. He didn't want to lower the front because he'd scrape all over the place.
    The spoiler is from Project Kahn
    Offset is confidential. ADV.1 doesn't let me release them but if you want something similar just let me know and they can use the same offsets.

    Thanks Michael! Very interesting about the springs. Looks really good with only the rear lowered and I'd have never guessed the front wasn't lowered at all. Does that affect the driving dynamics in any way with stiffer rear springs?

    Thought that might be a Kahn rear spoiler. Looks really nice. I like! PM me a price on that one if you sell their stuff.

    Seriously on the offsets? C'mon ADV, is that really considered proprietary info? Just going to make me have to calculate it myself (which I've done many times on other vehicles....) and won't necessarily indear me to your company.....

    Michael, I will contact you when I'm ready for wheels. I like your sig!!!

    Let me get you pricing for the spoiler. Trust me, it's a battle I've endured with many wheel companies. Because like you, I could just measure it myself.

    Thanks for the compliments on the sig. I truly believe in it!

    I can't PM you says you have it turned off. Can you email me? [email protected]

    Well, et's aren't "proprietary" information by any means but as I'm sure you can understand, in many ways the offset may be the secret recipe to making the perfect set of wheels. I personally determine the offsets on every single set of wheels we produce and I know from experience how hard it is sometimes and how much money can be lost trying to get the perfect fitment. With that being said, for us to then release this information publicly allows anyone to match a specific fitment without having to go through the time and effort that we may have in order to reach that fitment. All of these vehicles that we show on a constant basis have good, if not perfect fitments and that doesn't happen by accident. Often times there may be multiple sets of wheels, ruined tires, damaged fenders, and lot's of frustration that we had to go through before you'll see the final product and that information is very valuable in this industry.

    As Michael will agree, we do share this information, along with engineering schematics and 3d renderings on every set we make should the client or dealer request them. This information is for our customers and openly available to them upon request which hopefully you can understand and respect. If you decide at some point to order a set of ADV.1 wheels, you're more than welcome to this information and any other info you'd like on your set of wheels. You can measure backspacing and fenderwell clearance and any other measurement you feel necessary however the only way to know for sure is to start cutting aluminum, mount some tires and hope for the best...Or you can let us do the dirty work to ensure you get a perfect fitment

    Sorry for the long explanation, just wanted to be clear being that you seemed a little surprised by us keeping this information confidential.

    Fitments like these can't be found online for a reason:

    Yes what Jordan said and maybe I should have been more clear. Once you purchase the actual wheels, ADV.1 will let me release the offsets.

    Jordan, certainly do not want to get into a debate about offsets nor do I wish to highjack this thread but, it's not really rocket science (well, for some I know it is....)? And I certainly would never question the beauty of your fitments. You guys have some spectacular wheels and I also understand that you wouldn't want "most" customers tweeking their wheels b/c they might think they know bettter than you.... I could see huge issues if someone in your position would allow that to happen. However, once an et is determined for a particular car, unless you introduce some other factor that would change the fitment like spacers or perhaps larger brakes the fitments are all pretty much "canned" at that point i.e., all the same. Someone might not want the wheel to crowd the lip or somebody might want a little more clearance on the inside and that would be easy to tweek......

    Here's the last fitment I worked out on my old (old = sold) 928 GTS. et was given, I have to work out thickness of spacer whiched replaced the stock GTS spacer. You could barely slide a piece of paper between the tire and the fender lip....

    BTW, this fitment looks like if you set it up with the proper camber it may rub on the rear?
