Default 17 or 18x9 (.5) low offset

Does anyone have 17 or 18 inch wheels that are wide (9" or more) and have an offset below 40. They must be 5x100 and have FAT tires (255 minimum, 265-275 preferrably).

I would like to test fit one wheel on my car. Although I will have a taller tire I want to see that the fitment of width will work on the car.

If anyone has these and have not put them back on their car for summer yet and wouldn't mind me doing a test fit it would be very much appreciated and will get you a 12 pack oh beer (or bottle of wine, or equal).

Let me know by post or PM. Thanks. Style does NOT matter, just fitment.

I don't know of many 9" wide rims for 5x100. I think the SSR Type-F might have 17x9 5x100 not sure.

It would be a lot easier if it was 5x114.3 haha

edit: What offset was loomin's 18x9.5's?

Rota has a number from Suby Dude. Besides that it's pretty rare unless you go uber high end where you basically get a set of rims made to order. I think HappDays had a pretty high offset wheel.

Thanks Happy. If I can't find anything else I may take you up on that. Even with a different size tire I can get an idea. Basically want to see where the rim edges will be on the Forester.
