I'm looking at some 17x7 wheels with a 38 offset. I will be lowered on an FRPP kit. Will this offset work on my 2009 with the FRPP kit, and if so what tire size should I go with?
All of the 17x7 Ford wheels were et 49...still not a large of enough difference between et38 to make a big difference in the wheels not fitting. Not unless you are really low I'm seein' 38 posted now, vs. 42mm Stock for that size it's 4mm extra - no worries as mentioned.
215/45-17 is Stock for SVT sizing, 205's will work as well.
depends on the width...Id call 17x8 et30 to be about flush (must be really low and stretched tire to make it look right though.) You'd have issues with rubbing on bumps with a regular tire if you went flush. Cant say i have seen 17x7 in a low enough offset to look flush. You can always add 5-15mm spacers to find out though (just buy longer studs first)Recommended is 40-49 anyways right? I know it's a 2mm difference but whatever. What offset would make the wheels flush with the fenders? Just curious.
