I want to buy these Porsche 17" wheels (pics below) but i want them to sit flush with the fenders in the front and rear and im having a hard time trying to figure out what thickness adapter to buy. I know people are running this same set up and i want to know what u have. Also im going to strech the rears maybe an inch and the front 1/2 inch. My car is lowerd about 2 - 2 1/4" on springs now. before it was lowered i was running my stock Aristos with 20mm spacers and they sat perfect. if you got some pics that would be awesome
The offset is 55
the fronts are 17" x 7"
the rears are 17" x 9"
