Re: help on 17x7.5 +40 Offset rims

They'll fit if that's what you are wondering. I'm running xxr's with a similar spec. I think I got a bit lower offset. May want to roll the fenders so you can get some decent size tires on there. I'm running 205/45 and don't rub. 215s would work too but either one will give plenty of protection. They are a bit stiffer as far as feel tho

Front is ok, but I had to cut some off my rear bumpers inside corners that they wouldnt rub there

I have 215/45/17 tires

Re: help on 17x7.5 +40 Offset rims

Ok so i started sanding the curb rashes .. bad idea freaking clear coat is pia.... so anyways i noticed two rims have a wider lip... there not staggered cause the back of all rims say 17x7.5...40..... but there's definitely a difference in the lips .... anyone else have any rims like this? I think its going to look good with the wider lips in the back
