True but I'd like to run out the stock tires first before changing them out and the same wheel in 17x8 will be lighter than the 17x9 version.
I'm not all that interested in running a wider track unless it's upfront and I can kill some of that damn understeer...
I'm assuming the stock 235 wide tires will be fine on a 17x9? And if I did want to go 17x8 I would need a different offset than a 17x9 would use correct?
