17x7" Wheels with >45mm Offset?

Is anyone aware of any aftermarket wheels, with the exception of the Ford Racing Tuner Wheels, that are 17x7" with an offset of 46-49mm? The largest offset I can find on the aftermarket wheels I've been browsing is 17x7" with +45mm. If anyone is aware of some, let me know.

I actually sent an e-mail to Konig asking if they will make their wheels with a custom offset for the right price. They said they won't do that.

Although, even though stock is +49mm, +45mm wouldn't be too bad I don't think. It's just that I'd RATHER have it as close to the stock offset as possible. 4mm isn't very much if you actually bust out a ruler and see exactly how much it is. Is anyone else running an SVT Focus with 17x7" wheels and +45mm offset? If so, any rubbing?

maybe you could go with a 17X7.5 wheel to help offset the look a bit?

45's should be fine if you don't go crazy with tire width. Most rubbing problems reported here result from 40 or 42 offsets and 2+ inch drops and/ or tires exceeding 215mm width. Naturally if the car is not lowered none of the offsets mentioned should cause rubbing problems. I have seen a couple of Rotas offered in 45mm offset.

Oz Racing Record... 17x7, 4x108 bolt pattern, 48mm offset... lightweight, but a little pricey (a hair less than Superleggeras).

I'm planning on getting them in spring unless I come across a good deal.

I think a 17x7" wheel with a +45mm offset would be just fine. 4mm is barely anything when you actually look at it on a ruler.
