Perfect tire size? 17x7.5 35mm offset

Postby GTU89 » Fri Nov 02, 2012 7:42 pm

Okay, my 17x7.5 OZ rims are a 35mm offset IIRC, what would be the perfect tire size that would not rub or anything like that be? I don't know if it is lowered or not, so we'll assume not.

(PO said it was lowered in the rear, but I'm gonna take what he said with a grain of salt)

Probably will get new summer tires around this spring, so I'd like to know what to look for when I do.
