wheel width is as, if not more important than offset in this case.

We need a diameter and width to help you.

Just to add another point of view I almost got TypeC2's +42mm offset 17x7.4 with 215/40 but didn't.......I got TypeC5's with +44mm offset.

SOME people have used +42mm and gotten no rubbing.....SOME people have used +42mm and did experience rubbing.

It's CLOSE.....I think it also has to do with how stiff your springs are. I'm close with +44mm.......if I find a buyer for my rims the next set I buy will NOT be lower than +44mm in the offset....that's just me though.

To give you an idea...i have 18x7.5 RH CP-10s with 225/35/18 S02s and a 45mm offset...i rub occasionally at stock height. So if you ever plan to lower your car to be on the safe side get at least a 45mm offset for 17x7 and at least 48mm offset for 17x7.5. Again, the size of the tire matters also...225 go with a larger offset...215 it's your call.

You are now on the official hit list of The Bloods. I'd watch your back if I were you. Don't question my backwards wheels, it's much safer that way. But for you, it's too late.

maybe it's just me...
but, i had the chance to see 2 different offsets relative to how it looks in the wheelwell.

Joon's is +44mm, and Anubyss' is +48mm.
i had followed each car from behind and i must say i like the +48mm better... it looks *more tucked in*, if you know what i mean.

I actually don't like the "tucked" look. But that's just me.

As soon as I can find a set that I like to replace them....I have to see how the prices are for some new Volks......if in the end nothing comes up I'm obviously keeping them.

Question tho...did you shave that triangle thing on the rear bumper? I'm sure most people with aftermarket rims NEED to shave this or else they'll rub. It's not really rubbing...it's just that stupid thing getting in the way. I have 7.5 +48 and they touched that thing...shaved them off and i've had ZERO problems since. Just an FYI if u didn't do it already...
