Does the offset make the tire and wheel look any differently on the car, ie like how flush it is with the car? Is anybody running SDRs with +53 offset on their wagon? Thanks guys. I really need the help. I am looking to purchase soon.
I have Prodrive P1's which are 17X7 with a +53 offset. I just got the 452's in 225 45 17 as well and no rubbing. Also, my car is lowered on Prodrive Springs. I am pretty sure that you will not rub either with the 7.5 inch wheel, wont make much difference. I would get the higher 53 offset - it was designed with the wagons and early RS's in mind to fit.
Hope that helps
