you know that I want my car to be lightest as possible but it has to look decent as well . I found some 18lb tires as well , I will loose about 40lbs if I buy the rfp1s. If I buy the new OZs allegeritas I will loose 44 lbs

16's would be even lighter and you still aren't really helping your drivetrain.

Stock fenders? What size tires. I'm guessing that with 225+ width and stock fenders, you would probably rub in the rear.

Juan, you should listen to the Uncle, he has some good recommendations

FWIW Juan, my RPF1s are 45s, and my MB Speed (winter wheels) are +45s, look good, not "hella flush" like the kids want but better than stock 06-07 ET

The +35 isn't a big deal. It fits very easily in 17x8. If you want it, get it. If you ask a question and don't let anyone give you an answer then just do whatever.

^^what he said. you have a sedan, right? 225/235 tires? worst case scenario you have to roll your fenders a little. I guess its about what you want: +35 offset will "look" better (however beauty is in the eyes of the beholder) and +45 will most likely "fit" better. If you frequently drive on bumpy roads and take corner aggressively you'll run into rubbing issues much more with a +35 offset.

the car comes with a +55

putting a +35 on is 3/4" wrong

this seriously alters the suspension and steering geometry

or haddnt ya thought of that???

the +45 is actually a real good fit for a 17x8 and is the best choice for many reasons

bro, if these 17x8 wheels are gonna be your track wheels then who cares if "they looks sucky." Have you seen track cars? masking tape all over the front of them, zip ties holding parts together, numbers marked all over the windows....when your at the track its about being the fastest, not the coolest looking.

Yeah, that makes a lot of sense. Obviously those big fat Rotas are def a lot lighter than the 18x8 Ultraleggeras (ultralight in italian) . You obviously have tunnel visions and are an idiot.
