Help ID'ing 5Zigen Rims w/ Offset

Went and test-fitted these today. They're 5Zigen 17x7.5 but I don't know the name or offset, which I'd like to know for when I get suspension.







And I know...gigantor offroad style. The tires on there are only 205/40's so they're too small anyway.

Re: Help ID'ing 5Zigen Rims w/ Offset

It's not the tires I'm worried about, it's the offset of the rims for when I DO lower it.

Copied from Recommended Tire size & Offsets!:

7.5" Wide Wheels w/ 4th & 5th Gen

Less than +40mm ::: Not Recommended
+40mm to +43mm ::: Not Recommended if you are, or plan to be, lowered. You take the chance of rubbing the outside lip of the wheel well. Wouldn't recommend using any tire with an overall diameter larger than stock and/or with a tire width larger than 215.
+44mm to +47mm ::: This is a grey area if you are lowered, results vary depending on tire and/or drop. You take the chance of rubbing the outside lip of the wheel well. Wouldn't recommend using a tire with an overall diameter more than slightly larger than stock, you chances of rubbing increase.
+48mm to +52mm ::: You shouldn't have any problems. Recommended Offsets for 7.5" Wide Wheels.
Larger than +53mm ::: Not Recommend. You take the chance of rubbing the inside lining of the wheel well.

Re: Help ID'ing 5Zigen Rims w/ Offset

Well there's quite a few ppl I've seen with 4th gen ludes with 10-12 mm offsets slammed and they have no problems and that's with 8 inch wide wheels. As long as you roll the lips inside the fenders you should have no problem. I had 0 degree offset 15x8's on my mark3 jetta and it was dropped pretty good. All I did was rolled the lip inside the fenders and even with four ppl in the car it never rubbed. Personally I'm going with a 16x8 wheel and 205/40/16 tires with a 12mm offset on my 4th gen and I'm slamming it on either function&form coilovers or ksport coilovers.

Re: Help ID'ing 5Zigen Rims w/ Offset

That's part of the problem-I want to keep the body as-is. I guess I'll just have to learn the hard way and just sell em again if they don't work out.
