Ok ya'll, I need some help. I ordered a set of 17x8 Torq thrust II with 8mm offset (4.81" BS) for the rear. When I test fit them without the tire, they looked to be tucked waaaay under the fender, just did not look right. In fact, I measured the distance the were set in vs my existing 15x7 torq thrust, and they were in around 1/2" more. So ordered the next most aggressive option available on Amazon, which are 17x8 with -11mm offset (4.07bs). From everything I am reading, I may be poking out to far? I do not have the wheels yet, but just curious if I need to go back to the 8mm. Does anyone have any pics with negative offset rears?

Note: The fronts are 17x7 with 0mm offset, 4.5" bs, and look to fit great, but that offset and bs for the 8" wide wheel is not available.

Any thoughts?

Sounds like you need a 5.5" BS and a 1" spacer.

Yawn....how many times is that going to be posted.

Im pretty sure we all know that no one is going to find a 1" spacer.

Sure I should have used adapter vice spacer, but either you know or you dont know.

Just a few years ago, people were sure that if you used an adapter, you, your kids and somebodys kids in a minivan were going to die.

How times have changed.
