16" wheels on 5th gen

I need some winter wheels and found a great deal on a set I like. The only problem is that they are 16x7 with a +42 offset and I planned on running the stock size 205-50-16s on them. I'm lowered on H&R race I think (whichever ones are red) on KYB GR2s. I still have a 2 finger gap even with my 17s on with 215-40-17 tires. Will this offset work with my lowered stance?

I keep hearing not to go any less than +45mm.

Yeah, I know. I have +48 on my 17x7.5 Rpf1s. I thought that 16s would be a little different.

If I'm doing the math correctly the outer edge would stick out 19.35mm more.

I recalculated based on the RPF1's that you currently have. The winter rims/tires outer edge will stay the same. The inner edge will gain 12mm more clearance. You should be fine as long as your overall diameter (wheel & tire) of the winter setup is the same as your current setup.

I have 18x7.5" rims w/ a +43 offset. they come flush to the sheet metal. my car is lowered and I have a 1" gap between the wheel well and tire. They don't rub because I have good suspension.

From my experience I think you'll be just fine.

i dont understand how my post confused you... go with a higher offset and your ride <when you drive > will be ****, you will feel as though when you drive you will not have total control of your car.

Who's the manufacturer of your suspension?

Offset is simply the distance from the mounting surface of the wheel (the surface that touches the hub) to the centerline of wheel.

Imagine looking straight on at a wheel (tread facing you), the centerline would be located at half the width of the wheel.

Our stock wheels have an offset of +55mm. So in other words the mounting surface is 55mm away from the centerline (near the outer edge). A wheel with zero offset would have a mounting surface at dead center of the wheel.

Stock wheels are 6.5 inches wide. If you bought new rims that were also 6.5 inches wide but had an offset of +45 then the outer edge will be closer to the fender compared to stock. This is where you have to be careful because you run the risk of rubbing especially if you're lowered. Remember also that the inner clearance is affected as well especially when upgrading to wider rims.

Hope that helps a little.
