New Winter Wheels

What do you guys think? Its weird seeing the car on 17's, but it rides pretty well. These are no-name wheels, 17x7.5 with 225/45 tires.

They look awkwardly small from the side/rear. Time to get spacers? What size spacers do you guys think I can fit on there?

WOW, for 17's they actually look pretty good! Without knowing the offsets and based on the pictures alone the fronts don't look that bad, probably could get away w/a 5mm spacer and rears it looks likey you could get away with a 10mm spacer. You could likely use the same spacers with your factory set-up without rubbing issues.

Thanks... They were only about $90 a wheel, which I thought was pretty damned cheap. I believe they're +43 offset.

I didnt know my factory wheels had spacers - the car came with the performance package and style 195 wheels.

They don't; what I meant was you could re-use the spacers that you would buy for your winter set-up with your OEM wheels for a slightly more agressive stance.

Ahh gotcha.. Could I do 10mm front and 10mm rear or wider? I'm not very good at determining the technicalities of offset/spacers/etc.

If the offset is et 43 then yes, but you might not be able to run a 10mm in the rear with your OEM wheels without causing problems- not 100% though.

The best way to be sure how mm's you can add without causing problems is to measuure like they do here... http://www.turnermotorsport.com/t-wheel-spacers.aspx

These arent the factory wheels - my OEM wheels are the 195 style wheels (18x8 front, 18x8.5 rear) that came with the performance package.

But I would like to see what your 17" wheels look like with the spacers. If you could take some pictures and post them up, I'd appreciate it.

Cool - thanks! Where did you get your spacers? Did you have to get new bolts for your wheels or did the OEM ones fit?

I got them from pyspeed they usually have a discount code. They are the rs technik and they comes with bolts and everything so dont have to worry about getting the wrong bolt or anything. Sometime they have the same brand on ebay for like 20 bucks cheaper then there website. I also see people do 12mm front and 15mm rear. hope that help sorry for getting back to you so late was away from a computer for a long time.
