alright so im searching for new rims mainly lighter rims!
i've been thinking of lighter 18 by 8...
but it just crossed my mind that 17 x 8 with some nice 235/40 rubber would be nice on my hatch...
anybody running 17 by 8's?
do they make them i've been lookin for tenzos and nothing found some rotas..

pics and advices accepted!
and if we have any one who sells wheels on the forums feels free to let me know what you got!

Try to stick to the higher offset... +48.

With the 235's, not sure if you will rub cause it's a 40 profile but you might so you should think about rolling the fenders but do it when it happens.

I have a set of O.Z. 17x8 +48, those are 235/45 but I rolled so no rub.



And, I had a set of Enkei 17x8 +45 w/235/45 and I rubbed pretty bad on those before I rolled.

IMO, if you go any higher is gonna be a bit too tucked. I already feel that way on my O.Z.

And, I don't think I will be selling the O.Z. since they are my daily and discontinued.

My Enkeis are sold. I replaced them with 17x9 +45 now.

Those wheels look good, 17x8?

Here are the 9's. I don't recommend it for daily set up.
