Default What are these wheels?

So I'm putting these on my car, but I have no idea what they are...

Anyone know? I need to get some center caps!



Thanks!

No idea. Maybe some ADR's? Do you even know what size and offset they are?

Where did you get the wheel from? You might want to check there.

However, as the others have stated, what is the size & offset of the wheels?

Hmmm .... Are you sure they fit the 5 x 100 Bolt Pattern? If so, then there should be a stamp on the inside of the wheel (usually on a spoke) that shows the offset ( +35, +42, +53, etc. ).

Ah...I believe +40 (small circle against the lug backing.)

I'm going to have rubbing issues aren't I? (+19mm outwards compared to stock, am I right?)

Well, +53 to +48 is more the normal range. +40 will stick it out a little ways, yes. Rubbing will depend on how wide a tire you run. Since it's only a 7" wide rim, you won't be going all that wide. If you're stuck to a 215 or 225 tire, you may not even rub. Even if it does, you might get away with just a little camber change or slight fender rolling and be good.

I always hate finding a thread where a question is asked that matches the one I'm searching for, but never has an answer...

So, sorry for the delay, but 17*7's w/+40 with Falken Azenis RT615 235/40/17's fit nice under my 03.

Here's a quick pic. I'll get some more up someday when I can finally find the time to wash the beast.

Dude, the car looks good with those wheels. Surprised you went with the 235 tire size though, that seems like it would be too big for a 7 inch wide wheel.

To be honest I went with 235's because I had 'em. They are pretty well used, but I wanted to see how the wheels looked on the car, before I spend money on fresh rubber. Mounting the 235's was pretty tough, I needed another set of hands and we were both prying to get 'em on.

But they have a nice flush look on the rim, that I'm pretty happy with, I'll try to get some closer up shots....
