Okay I need some help here.

I am going with 17 inch wheels.
What offset do I need?
What size should I be looking for? 17x7? 17x8? 17x9? Does it matter?
Is the offset the bolt pattern?

Sorry. Noobish in this particular area.

I think 17x7.5 with a +35 offset is probably what you're looking for. You could also get away with +42 with that width but it wouldn't be as flush. If you have or plan to get forced induction in the near future though, I'd suggest going with something at least 8" wide.

^This is a pretty good explanation of what offset is, or at least a much better explanation than I can give you. It's not the same as your bolt pattern (which is 5x100 just in case you didn't know).

Anyways, good luck with your wheel search, and make sure to take your time finding a wheel that suits your needs best. :gap:

17x8 with +35 offset is your best bet

i would recommend 225/40/17 tires unless you want to roll your back fenders then 235

Go with +35 offset and tire size 225/40/17. You will have a very good stable handling with those tires.

I like how the TC105N is lighter but I like the SA-70 blue lip in it.
Both look very sharp.
If I have the money would it be worth getting the forged ones? Or does it not make that much of a difference you think. . .
