I'm currently wieghing out all of my options on what wheel I should get. Its come down to Konig Imagines and CR7s. I like the imagines but theres something about the CR7s thats really attracting me to buy them. The wheel is 17x8.5. How bad is the rubbing going to be? What about spacers? I really don't know a whole lot when it comes to wheels.

Get the CR7s! Offset should be about 30mm all around. Any lower on 8.5in width and there will be crazy rubbing on the fenders. Tire size is 215/40/17! Try Yokohama Paradas...
As for spacers...you can bring it in more by 5 mm if you wish...30mm offset is fine for 17x8.5 - oh yeah....forget the Konigs when it comes to the CR7s.

8.5's wont rub like crazy, 9's rub like crazy...i was going to do 17x8.5 with an offset of 25 but was unable to get my rims for 3 months so i went with something diffrent....i say man up and do 9's, roll the fenders and youll be set http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Dude, get the CR7s...you know you want them more than the konigs, those two wheels aren't even in the same category...CR7s out class imagines 5:1...mount some 215/40s and you shouldn't be too bad in the rubbing department, you can always roll/pull your fenders.
