Just wanted to see how these wheels would look on my car. My friend let me borrow his wheel so I can see how it looks. It really looks good. The wheels are 17x9 with a +25 offset. They stick out a lot. I'm thinking about going with some 17x8 with a +35 offset.
By going to a 8" wide rim in theory the outer rim should be 1/2" further inwards compared to your photo above.
Also as you lower the car the top edge of the tyre will pull in a little due to the increased camber.
With stock springs in there it's a bit hard to picture as there's actually a little positive camber. As in the top of the tyre is pulled outward a little.
If you also go to +35 the outer rim should be 10mm further inwards again.
In my experience 8" +35 (actually the 8" tyres you will likely fit to them) will have problems with clearance at the struts in the rear.
Or just get coilovers too and not have to worry about the wheel touching the spring or perch. Coilovers are usually thinner in overall diameter than the stock macpherson setup. I've got 17x8s 35 offset on my first gen with coilovers and the wheel is no where near the coil.
You will rub the strut in the rear with +35 offset with 8” wide out back. I have the xxr 502 for my rx7 and was test fitting them on the mx6 and was rubbing the perch in rear. I think its the heighth of the wheel that matters alot with rubbing the perch in the rear.
^To some degree yes, but my 16" x 7.5" +38 wheels with 205/50 r16 tyres rubbed too.
I ended up having to get a pair of 8mm spacers for the rear before the tyre fitters would touch it, this makes my effective offset +30mm in the rear.
Even then I've always thought that my tyres could stand being a little bit more flush.
About 5-10mm in the rear and about 10-15mm in the front.
And yes I have my car lowered on super-low king springs (not the best, too soft in the rear)
If you're going to fit 17" blingy wheels and don't want to look like a knob jockey you'll want to lower the car at least 2".
With an 8" (205) wide tyre you really need a +30 offest or less.
Ok. I'm looking to by some wheels in a couple of days and I just want to know if these will fit without any issues. They're some MB Weapons 17x8 with a +28 offset and the tires I'm going to put on are 215/45/17.
