Re: eric at tire rack.. Borbet type T's 17's... (JimGTIVR6)

Ugh.
Borbet Type T has exposed lug holes.
Borbet Type TD has center caps.
Otherwise they are the same.
Still... Type T not available in 17 for you.

Well tickle my nipple, and skewer me with a big black buttplug... I'll be damned.
I didn't realize that the fitment took offset into account...

Dish depends entirely on width and offset.
See if you can get someone with the size you want to take some pics of their wheels.

No rest for the careless.
Wheel manufacturers are always doing this to us, discontinuing wheels, bringing out new ones, bla bla bla. Sometimes vendors based in Europe will make it for the home market and not export it, or the other way around. That is one phat lipped wheel, and I seriously doubt that even if it did exist that it would fit your vehicle. It's always best when the wheel is actually engineered for the vehicle.
