40 Offset ok?

I am thinking about getting some 17's with a 40mm Offset. I have not lowered my ZX5 yet, but plan to put a Eibach Pro Kit on it in a few months. Will i be ok, with this setup?

Oh btw i am putting 215/45/17 tires on to the rims.

40mm is alright, especially with just the prokit, under tight turns you may rub a bit with the 215/45's...still suggest running 205/40's

42mm+ (to 45mm) is ideal. You should be fine, I wouldn't go anything less then a 40.

Yea I read the info about the ideal offset, but I wanted these wheels, which ofcourse have to be 40mm offset with my luck.

And no there usually isn't anyone sitting in the back seat. Just the massive sub box in the trunk :)

you might have some rub issues. (With Progress springs) I have 40mm offset and when I had 205/55/16s on and it rubbed on dips (and people in the back). Never had any issues with turns though.

To clear, I rolled my rear fenders (with a bat) and went with the stock height tires (205/50/16) and no more issues. I even had 5 people in the car.
