I need some help! I am not 100% sure of all this technical stuff and I am totally lost with offsets. I have a 2012 Focus Ti with the 18" rims. Next winter, I am planning on getting 17" rims and winter tires, all with factory specs to ensure proper fit. If I was get a 215/50R17 winter tire and 17" rims with a 50mm offset, would that be acceptable? Why would anyone get a 40mm or 45mm offset when the factory 17" rim has a 50mm offset? Any help will be greatly appreciated!
