weiwu, I'm not sure I understand what you're getting at. Are you saying the left and right rear wheels are different on your model? They shouldn't be. The may have different offsets front to rear but should be the same side to side. It's kind of hard to tell from CXs pic but it seems to be the case. The offset is the difference in the wheel where it attaches to the hub (the portion with the lug nuts) in relation to the centerline of the outer rim. That's what gives a wheel a "dished" appearance. From your pics the right has a deeper dish than the left. I suspect this is the correct one and the left is a front wheel mistakenly attached to the rear.

Assuming I understand you correctly, that is. Write AUTOart and ask for a new wheel.

:cheers

The wheels are right, the spokes are what he is talking about. The spokes are bent outward on the front and straight on the rear. The model is the same as the pic of the real car so its accurate.

How can the model be accurate if he's saying the wheels are different side to side? Did you even read my post? Last time I checked spokes were part of a wheel. :nutkick

:iagree also not to get off topic but you reminded me of SF's Beetle RSI he recently got. Its rear wheel is crooked. This is another case where AUTOart make a mistake.

Maybe AUTOart put front to the rear. But CSL rear tyres are wider than the front, take a look at the picture, two rear tyres are the same. if AUTOart put wrong wheel, rear tyre shouldd be bigger than the wheel. WIERD :confused
Sorry, It's hard too describe in English....I can't speak english very well...
I need my sister too translate, but she's not here............ :crying

Thank you for remind me that, RichardM.
But I will ask the dealer here for help first. I'm not sure that I can change the wheel by myself. :cheers

it sure looks weird.
from your pics, seems like 3 of wheels are the same ones...only the right rear has a lower offset...
U should really try to email AUTOart....
