hey guys
sorry if this is the wrong place to post this.

i was wondering if someone could help me on this. i searched around but couldnt find exectly the right answer. i found a deal on a set of wheels with the following specs: 17x10 offset 17p and 17x8.5 offset 18p. im wondering if these would fit on my car. i drive a 96 1.8T FWD. im currently on H&R sports and stock shocks with my front fenders rolled. i will be getting coilovers in the future once im done fixing everything but i found a deal on these wheels so id jsut like to know if i would be able to run them.

hope someone can tell me if these would fit, what i would need to make them fit, and what tyres i would need if ever.

Compare the wheel you have on their now to the wheel you want to get. Then measure and see if the spots it increases have clearance.

i cant comment on the rears but the fronts may or may not. this is a 17x8.5 et19 with 215/40s, trimmed fenders, trimmed liners...rubbed like a whore:


NOW, with smaller tires and a little more fender work than i was prepared to do...you could make the fronts work.

@crispy222 thanks for the link. was using a different one but this one is much better

@mad hatter wow your car looks really good... so you're running 215 40 in the front for the offset?

im beginning to think that i may not be able to make these things fit properly. thanks for all the help, time to look for a different set.

215/40/17 tires on a wheel with a 19 offset. They are no longer on the car though, they fitment did not work for me.

10" and 17 offset is going to stick out a whole lot. Mine are 18x10 et19 and a 225/40 would be preferred tire size to barely fit.

Because of that, you may have to roll and flare out the rears a bit.

I think you may have to roll and flare out the fronts a bit too.

You could make em work for sure. Something like 205/40 f and 215/40 r with some fender work and it could happen.
