Re: Question on Offset new

reach between the top of your rear tire and the strut. that is the problem. the larger the offset number the further you get from the strut. the original wheels on the svt are 35 or close to that. i had 215/45/17 tires with an offset of 40mm. had no problems at all, but tire rack and discount tire said they would rub. i had to argue with them to sell me the set. i also had 235/45/17 with a 52mm offset, yes 52mm. they would rub a little if i had big people in the back seat and on bumpy roads, only on the passenger side rubbed. check these two sites out answer a lot of your questions and pass them on to others!!!

the rubbing was on the inside rubbing against the strut, no rubbing at all on the fender and these were 17/8" wheels 52mm offset and 235/45/17 tires. try to get the biggest offset posible
