Yup, the offset.

The wheel should stick out a little more from my understanding. I could be wrong though because I haven't been looking into wheels since I had money like 2 summers ago haha.

with +35, the wheels will stick out more than they do +48. +48 is around stock, so if your trying to get it to look more flush or something, go with +35. if it rubs your fender, you can always get dennis to roll it.

Yup, the 35+ would stick out more.

go with 35, it will give you more lip, and on a 7.5 inch wide rim, you shouldn't have to worry about that kinda offset at all
+48 would be too sunken in IMO

i dont think you will have to worry that much. its only pushed out a little more there might be a small chance you'll rub but i highly doubt it.

flip rolled his rears, but he has 9 inch wide rears, and i think runs low 30's to high 20's positive offset.... so you won't be anywhere close to that

The rim with the +35 offset will sit 13mm further out than the rim with the +48 offset.

That sucks, I really cannot afford anything right now. It only seems to happen when its really cold out too, the same thing happened with my two previous Acura's. It sucks being a broke college student.

Wish I kept mine, otherwise I would have given it to you for free. I threw everything in the trash that I took off the car.

prolly sounds exactly like mine did, it's your blower motor, only replaceable, not fixable, take a look at the video of mine and tell me if it sounds close to the same https://acurazine.com/forums/1g-cl-problems-fixes-71/fan-problem-696050/

edit: i just checked ebay and they seem to start around 50 bucks, not bad, i paid over 100 for mine

yeah mine was quiet when it started, but it gets worse with time...
but on the good side it's a bearing issue or something, so you can't really screw anything else up, just the motor itself
if you have any other questions, just bump that thread of mine, and i'll answer any questions i can, and i did the replacement myself btw

Does anyone know if the rear motor mount on the 4cyl CL's is supposed to be the same on the automatics and manuals?
On 5th gen accords i believe the auto one is a little bit taller, but I grabbed one from a 5spd CL and it looks the same as the auto

With the right wiring harness, will the OEM CL headunit fit into a 96 civic?

I can't find that thread about taking out the whole dash. I've got everything moving, but I think I can't pull it out because of the passenger airbag, how do I get it out!?

Airbag? For the radio? You shouldn't have to deal with the airbag, there are screws on each side of the console under the steering wheel cowling and the glove box, nothing near the airbag

I picked up a 99 CL V6, with the typical transmission problems. Will the 05 TL transmission fit the Acura CL 3.0 V6 engine? From what I read it isn't suppose to have the issues of the previous V6 transmissions.

I've had a tapping noise while the car is in park or neutral that goes away when it's in any of the drive gears. I didn't think valve taps mattered on the gear the car was in? Any ideas? No other unusual noises that I can hear.

Anyone know if our rocker panels are hollow or solid? Also, is there any way to stuff anything through them? Something like this on my buddy's Saturn:







I need to run 4 pieces of 1/0 wire through the car, from the engine bay (stock battery location) to the trunk for my additional battery bank.

So, does anyone know?

Cool. Now, how'd you get it off of the car? Are there just clips or something on the bottom of it that hold it on? Also, do you think there'd be room in there to stuff 2 (or hopefully 4) pieces of wire that are the size of your thumb?

Thanks guys. I probably won't have any time to look at it till next week. Although next week, I should have another vehicle to drive daily, which will be very nice... I'll post pics of it when I get home this weekend. It's far from the prettiest thing in the world, but last time I drove it, I was getting 35mpg across town...
