PM In2Twins (Carl Byck) for offset.

I bought his old ones from him 17x8 TSW's with 235/40/17 Toyo RA-1's. They fit perfectly with coilovers on the car (FC).

You should be able to use stock offset without a problem....well, at least for the rear.

I've got 17x8's 32mm offset on my street car with 225/45/17's and they fit perfectly withought rubbing, even at the track. You will be able to go with a bigger offset and wider tires with coilovers.

Unfortunately I did not record the offset. Fortunately they were TSW Hokenheims, 17x8. I'm sure there is one fitment that is close, and that will be it(research). I used a sheet metal spacer in the front, as my car was extremely low. They worked very well, and were a good combo with the 235-40-17 RA1 Toyos. Coil overs w/2.5" spring are required. Carl
