Question Help...Anyone ever have their wheels milled?

Ok, heres my dumb qustion of the day. I have a set of 17" ROH Adrenalins on my 00 RS. I am going to be lowering the car with a set of Eibachs, but Im not doing any struts for now. The wheels I have are a 45mm offset. I dont want any rubbing at all. Im running 215/45/17 Toyo fz4's on them. Im afraid there will be rubbing if the cars dropped. Now..a shop in my area said the could mill out my wheels to give them a 50mm offset. Has anyone ever done this before? Am I doing a really stupid thing? Please...any help would be greatly appreciated. And if anyone thinks I should just get new wheels, just be honest and say so. Thanks.

Im not sure what it would run. Its a buddy of mine and he said he'd take care of it for me for nothing. But I cant see it being that much. It is just labor.

I haven't done this but also had a shop offering to do it. This place is reputable and they have done this before with postivie results. As long as the wheels are properly balanced after it should be no problem. Try lowering first and if you rub then, mill. Let us know how it turns out if you try it.

You should be able to run your wheels without milling. If you do have to mill, as long as its not more than 5 millimeters it should be okay. However the other thing that you must look at is how much hub metal you have left, there is a posibilty when you go to such high offsets that the hub could become weak if you mill. Just a couple of things to look for. Let me know if you have any other questions

I think IM gonna do what you said. Im gonna drop it, THEN see if it rubs, not just assume its going to. Hopefully it wont and I will have worried for nothing. And hopefully the firmer springs will give less movement for it to rub. Thanks again for the help.
