i have the 07 s40 (2.4i).
oems: 205/55/16 on 16x6.5 with 52.5 mm offset
new wheels: 205/50/17 on 17x7.5 with 38mm offset

hmm... this would be a close one, because of that offset. 40 mm offset seems to be the lowest I've seen , but concidering you're running a conservative 205 50 17 (as opposed to a 225 45 or 235 45)

I bet this would work , good luck http://********************/smile/emthup.gif

Re: wheel size and offset question... (mattdoc)

i did run them through the wheel calculator...it states the new set-up would stick out 14mm more than the stock setup.

is that too much???

No thats not much at all, should be fine. I bought some 38mm wheels as well and have no reason to expect any rubbing. Main cure for that is just getting a smaller width tire

Re: wheel size and offset question... (ForceFed Motorsports)

so is there anyone out there currently rolling the 38mm offset?
if so, what width tire are they mounted to?
