I like how the OEM 16" and even 17" wheels have that nice tucked in look.

OEM are 16X6 and 17X7 (correct?)

Here are the common aftermarket specs.

I understand the concept of offset. But right off the bat, aftermarket is always wider.

I don't plan to lower the car. I know lowering does tuck it in a bit.

Post pics if possible.

Thanks......

Only way an aftermarket on the cobalt would stick out is if you intentionally go for the "deep dish" look, and even then, you cant go too far out

Even if you went with a deep dish set of rims the lip wont stick out past the fender. In case you havent noticed .. The wheel wells and fenders on this car are pretty big . The only way you can really even get the lip of any after market rim to stick out the fender lines on this car is if you add wheel spacers and then a wide aftermarket rim. Wheel spacers are basically like a solid plate that allows you to add like a half of an inch or and inch to the hub that adapts to the wheel/ rim. But i am not even sure if there is a company out there that has designed a set of wheel spacers for the cobalt. And you can definitally drop a cobalt on springs with aftermarket rims and not have to worry about it rubbing on the fender line or wheel well. Hope this helps
