I think they don't come in gold. Check wheeldude.com. They are a vendor here and a major supplier of Rota rims. I hope this helps.

If you do that wide of a tire with a drop you might run into some tire rubbage on you fender well, also the wider the tire the more camber needed to bring the tire in so it does not touch fender

you will have to do that regardless.. and you will still need camber

with a 17x9 +30 you will need -2 in the rear with a nice roll and some pull

Personally on your S-tech springs I would go for rota DPT's or something similar that you can get in a 17x9 +42 range. It is going to be hard to elimate rubbing even with a good bit of work with the springs you have because they are soft and low. In the -2 camber range you will not see abnormal tire wear if you set your toe to 0... you will be fine on that. The issue is that with a 17x9 +30 at lower ride heights you will need a firmer suspension setup, camber, and rolling/pulling. I ran this same setup twice, and setups similar to it a ton of times.

so you wouldnt go with the torques 17x9 +30 because of the springs i have it would be hard to elimate rubbing? if all it is, is springs then ill look into buying H techs or something with a higher more stiffer ride... i want to go as big as i can with the torques.... whats the widdest/highest offset i can go with the torques if i replace my springs with stiffer higher ones? if thats the only problem

thats why im posting im trying to learn... i did a little more research and if i get the Eibach sportline springs and set my toe to 0, set -2 camber, roll all my fenders, and put 245's all around 18x9.5 would fit fine... i dnt auto x all the time maybe a couple times a year... crutique me on that thanks

Wow, this is sad. "Guru" My left nut. calm down man.. not everyone online "Know as much about cars" as you. I hope you don't act that way to your Nieces and/or Nephews.

I see you post on here a lot. And the only reason I notice is, a majority of the time your giving this message board a bad name.

Seriously sad.
