I just purchased Motegi FF7 wheels ... 17x7 front and rear (7 spoke, gunmetalo, polished lip
) And they have a +42 offset.
Will I need spacers to clear my brakes (stock size) or anything at all? Will they fit ok?

Thanks

Re: Offset question... (Seven1.8T)

Stock wheels are 17x7 ET38 so yours are almost the same. Since you've already bought them the best thing to do is just try them and see if they clear the brakes - you can't really predict just by the numbers.

Re: Offset question... (dennisgli)

True ... but I'd like an idea. cuz If I need spacers I wanna know ahead of time because the car has to be inspected with the new tires... The 16s I have now are basically bald.
