If lowering is in your future, and want an 8.5" wide wheel, look for something with an offset between 45mm and 48mm. Also, a good set of coiliovers will be necessary to dial in the right amount of drop.
Excellent advice! At this point I might go with the OZ rs wheels or a hybrid focus wheel powder coated white. Rotiform wants an extra $80 per wheel for powder coating and $50 extra for custom bolt patterns. That puts it at $410 a wheel, $1640 set...ummm pass. Last set I picked up a pair of 17" scion tc wheels with 4 yokimura tires, lugs/locks for $380 (installed on corolla s)
