Looking to get a set of wheels from a member of the site and was wondering if this set up will work on a stock Sc400.

The fronts are 20x8.5 16 offset 245/35
Rears 20x10 15 offset 285/30.

So I am going to buy some Racing Hart M5's and the back of them reads 18x8 1/2 J OFF 17.... Does that mean it has an Offset of +17 or am I not seeing the right part that tells me this info? I am going to buy them tomorrow and they where on an 04' 350z so I am just unsure of if they will fit right. I already have coilovers so I will be lowered and want to make sure if I need to do a fender roll or not.

Any help with this will be great. Thanks

Should fit but it will be sunken in a little up front, a lot more in the rear.

So even with a +17 it will still be sunk in... So by a little do you mean like 1" or do you mean just barely sunk in. I just want flush but not Hellaflush right now...

Provided my calculations are right, the front will be sunken in about 3/4" and the rears a tad over 1". You should look for some staggered sets instead, our cars are RWD and the rear fenders fill out better with wider wheels.

Well we will see what they look like and I am going to see if they maybe staggered because he only sent one pic and also didn't seem to know much about offset at all. Hopefully they are staggered.

Thanks for your input thought I appreciate it.

no link that I can look at? Pretty sure if they didn't tell you different sizes, then it's 18x7 +17 all around.
