So I am really digging these Enkei NT03+Ms, but I think I am asking for trouble because the only 17X7.5 offset they offer is 40mm. Using an offset calculator, wouldn't that put the edge of the wheel like 0.5" beyond the front fenders? I still don't totally understand what does and doesn't work, but if it stuck out that far and I didn't plan on lowering the car, would I have issues? Oh, here is a pic for those of you who don't know what I am talking about:

if ur not gonna lower, you will be fine, but i think thats gonna be ehh... you could prolly roll your fenders and it will fit with a drop.

Dude, I have the same wheel specs ( 17x7.5 @ +40 ) and it's quite fine, never rubbed. I use 215's on there also. Get'em if you dont have a mega agressive drop though, like more then 2"... But you should be fine!

Good to hear! Do you have any pics from the front that show how far they stick out relative to the fender? That would really help!

It doesn't look bad in that pic. Do you feel, after having them for a while, that it gives it a nice agressive appearance? Did you notice any handling difference over stock because of the 2 inch wider wheel base? Thanks for all of your help!
