    Happy to give feedback, noting that it is only my perspective and everyone is different. I'm not a seller so the tap dancing that goes on is way outside my experience or interest. As a buyer, I don't...

    Personally yes. The RS already has a huge offset with the OE wheels and adding another 10mm to it is a big ask for a 20+ year old car. Mine are flush enough that any more would just pepper the side...
