yessir. I'd watch the 8.5's up front... I'm running pretty close to the shocks as is... and my tires are a little stretched.

Image

That's the rear, 17x9, 35 offset. tires are once again a little stretched at 235/45/17. I'd say this is a pretty good tire size if you go 8.5 as well.

I was debating a 8" wide and a 205 stretched and a low offset and idea what offset would work? :bigthumb:

For pretty accurate measurement.

First measure your distance between the outter edge of your wheel and where the inner fender would be if it were straight down

Then go here:
http://www.venommotorsports.com/library ... ulator.asp

Enter your stock wheel (15x5.5 42 offset, IIRC), then play around with the 8 inch wide and different offsets to see how much further they would stick out past your OEM wheels.

My first guess would be a 17x8 +25 or so may work well with stretched (though I don't believe in stretching).

Yea. I'd go with what he said first. But if I was going with an 8 inch wheel I'd probably look for something with around a 20-25 offset. maybe even 30. Whatever you can find really, lol. Most everything affordable is 40 or 42.

I would highly recommend the Rota D2 in 17x8 (or 8.5) should have it around +25.

Also the 17x8 FN01R-C. Believe its around +30.

Really do think you'd like the 5Zigen FN01R-C in hyper black on your car, should be able to get 17x8 that fits well.

If wanting the wider spokes then I'd do Rota D2 in gunmetal.

17x8
Offsets available in 4x114.3: +20,+25,+35

18x8
Offsets available in 4x114.3: +25

i personally love the look with the wheels on your car... I'd throw some spacers on and rock those. How wide are they?
