Hi Guys,
I've seen the known wheel and tire combos doc Link , I'm looking at some wheels that are 17x8.5 offset 30 and 17x8 offset 25
I'd like to know if I have to roll the fender and mess with the camber in the front, as far as the rears I think they will be fine.
My suspension (Bilstein and Swift springs).
Thanks in advance.

a 17x8 35mm will stick out with stock camber. You're going to have to add some negative camber and depending on ride height, roll the fenders.

Also depending on tire size. Better not be less than a 245 on there.

I actually had 17x8 35 offset before and they were fine. Im just not sure about 17x8.5 30 offset and 17x8 25 offset.

One of the wheels in the front got messed up and I can't find one to replace it. Hence why I'm in the market for a set of wheels.

17x8.0 +25 will stick out front, but fit nice rear.



Great deal on BC coilovers. Hit me up. Whiteline dealer. Vibrant dealer.

The 30 will work with -2.5 camber up front. You can see my pics. I have 17x8.5 wheels with 245/40/17 tires and are an effective offset of +37 after the small spacer and I run -2.2 camber.
