Always search before you ask. There are like a 100 threads on here about wheel offsets and tire fitments. I'm sure you will find the info you need. IMO +53 would be best as this will I believe only set your wheel in & out an additional .25" but search, search, and search.

don't buy 17x7.5.

go with the 17x8 +48 g-force. your tire options are greatly increased.

The Rota G-Force 17x7.5 5x100 is only offered in +48 right now, this is also the offset you want to get if you go with the 17x7.5 wheel. The 17x7.5 +53 offset is meant for wagon's as they have less fender room and the higher offset allows them to still run a wider tire.
