Just bought some 215/50-17 Dunlop Graspic DS-2 on 17" Spyn JDX Wheels for 1300$ installed + tax

do you know what the offset of those wheels is? I'm trying to find some cheap rims on tiretrends or 1010tires but can't find much with an offset of more than 42-45mm.. I plan on running a 215/50/17 on a 17x7 rim.. any idea how low of an offset I can go with? I have a mazdaspeed without fenders rolled.. (i've spent so much tire reading all the tire threads and it's impossible to find any info, everyone is just asking about wanting to run 225 or 235 tires..)

I'm running 18x7.5 ADR Sokudo 10 with +48 offset. I don't have my fender rolled and I don't have any rubbing so far. 1010tires carries ADR wheels with +48. MRR, Volk even OZ have wheels with +48 offset. It took me a while to find mine too.

If you want to run 17s. Why don't you buy a set of 17' stock wheels from a 6?

that was my first plan, but my local mazda dealer wants $244 each for those stock mazda 6 rims.. I can get some much nicer rims for a lot less than that.. I did see the ADR rims and a few others with +48 (mostly 7.5 width) but they are all quite expensive.. I think I am going to take my chances with the Enkei RSV 17x7 +42mm for $189cdn.. I think from what I've been reading I should be ok with these as long as I stick to the 215 tire. I hope....

just to update.. I got my Enkei RSV rims put on.. 42mm offset.. so far i haven't had any rubbing issues, but I rarely load the car with any amount of weight, and so far havent been over any rough bumps that would compress the suspension very much.. the rims seem too nice to use through the winter.. I'll try to post a pic this week..

I am very happy with the shipping from 1010tires.. they arrived in just a couple of days and were well packaged, no damage to the rims at all.. they even included the hub rings (which fit like a charm)..
