also, i'm assuming gramlight 57c are quality wheels, right? i don't believe they are forged so i dont know how that would hold up as far as durability goes.

i've seen some people running the 17x8.5 but i can't remember what offsets they were using... if anyone can chime in with some helpful information, that would be a great help.


also, any word on gramlight 57c ?

yeah, i'll probably go with a 235/40 on 17x7.5 +48, how does that sound and how will it compare to 17x8.5 and 17x8 ?
