im looking to buy a set of rota j-mags, and i want to know which offset would be the best, 45mm or 50 mm.

here is the link to the wheels. i want them in gunmetal. 17x8.5 with a 50 mm offset is what i would prefer if it would fit but if i have to settle for the 17x 7.5 with 45 mm offset that would be ok

ask tigermack how he was able to fit his 17x9 45mm offset. i know it can be done with fender rolling but not too sure how close the inside of your wheels to hitting the shocks.

17x7.5 is the best for you. 17x8.5 and a drop, you'll more than likely be rubbing your suspension.

how big of a lip should be expected from the 17x8.5 offset 50??? that's a nice wide rim but the offset seems high. would that size fit on a tein s.tech drop??
