I've seem many recent requests about the difference between the Hamann PG3 19x8.5, 19x9, and 19x10 size wheels. So i decided to take some pix to settle this for all.

BTW, as you guys can see from the pix below, PG3's lip have a double step design which is different from PG2s single step lip design.

Here is a overall shot of the wheels 19x8.5 front and 19x10 rear. As you can see from this picture, you can tell a small lip difference between the fronts and rears.

Here you see the front 19x8.5s. The lip is rather small, and the center piece is pushed outwards. (19x9 have the exact same lip, center position)

Here you see the rears 19x10s. The lip is a bit bigger, and the center is pushed inwards. The line is almost horizontal with the lips

I hope this is informative to everyone who have always wondered what the difference between the different sizes are.

is that the only way to know the difference between pg2 and pg3? this would be a good thing to know (to avoid scams)
there's another give away...the PG2's valve stem is integrated to look like one of the rivets, while the PG3's valve stem is independent, much more noticable

hmm. Hamann are made in Italy. I wonder if i can even get a better deal from OZ factory than from Hamann Motorsport Gmbh in germany. Something to think about.

They won't sell those wheels to anyone except hamann b/c they are hamann's design. you cannot buy those from OZ direct.
i guess then it if Hamann motorsports is where i will get them from. peter, thanks for the info...

THE 10.0 in the back would require a lot of fender work.. stick with the 9.0. unless u got money burning a hole in ur pocket.

hmm not really. the 19x10 rears have an offset of 44. which isnt that aggressive. infact, with 265/30/19 tirse on, i bearly had my fenders rolled. i bearly rub at all. you can see in the pic, the wheel and tire tuck nicely in the fender. not much rubing.
