I found some wheels that I like but they are a +35 offset. I know I could run a spacer if the tires rubbed & that is an option. I am thinking a 245/55/17 tire would be the widest tire that I could go with.

I have +35 on me, but in 18's. stock is +45. the lower the +number the more they stick out. you can't put spacers as that will make them stick out more.

I have 255 55 18 tires on there and they rub from the offset, but this tire is too wide and too tall. it will not rub if i ran 235 50 18 or 225 55 18.

it rubs on the outer lip of all 4 fenders on occasion.

hope that helps

Do'h I know that, I have been looking at wheels alot & all it has run together. Thanks for pointing out my retardation. When I went to post this I was wondering if they would stick out too far lol.
The wheels are 17x8.

those wheels would look awesome. Im sorry i dont know anything about the offset. I just know on my new wheels (15x8, -19 offset) they stick out about 2 inches from the car. and i had to use an 8mm spacer on the fronts, but its mostly from the -19 offset.. my other wheels were +55 stock 2004 TSX wheels, 17x7 and they didnt stick out at all.

I would just imagine that they would stick out maybe 0.5-1 inch..but dont quote me on that..i really dont know
