Question wheel package options

So i'm looking into getting a new set of rims and tires.

Brokenmotorsports suggested i look into tirerack and discounttire for options.

i know what i want but don't know how to choose it. (noob)

i looked into these...(17x7.5 48 offset, bolt pattern 5x100)



but didn't know for sure if it was the right width.

let me explain, take a look at this 2nd grade diagram.



basically, i want my rims and tires to flush with the fenders. the red being how wide i want them and yellow just indicating the fenders (where it should go up to) uhm. i also wanted black or a gunmetal color and 17". i guess any suggestions and what i should look for when searching for a package.

thanks

You have alot to learn. Start reading the fitment and offset threads, look through the stance threads to see what you like and the sizes.

You'll need more like 17x9.5 and so much more effort, reading, camber, and fender beating.

Offset is everything! An 8" wide can be as flush as a 10" if the offset is low enough (theory/example)
