Default I'm thinking about buying Advan wheels got some questions?

Thinking about RC2 Advans
17 by 7.5
17 by 8.5
What offsets would I need for those sizes?
How much do you think the tires for the 17 by 8.5 would cost?
Weighing may options with those two sizes?

I got 17x7.5 Volks w/ a 48 offset, I did alot of searching and that seemed to be the consensus. 8.5 seems extremely wide, I would probably go 8 wide at the most. Not sure about the tire questions....

Thanks for the info Wraith. I didn't know if you had to use a different offset on a different rim. I have seen some peple on onlineshowoff with advan with 17 by 8.5. Don't know if they have any problems? Just thinking about the two sizes.
