TTT

I still need help cause since the offset on the factory 17" are different in the rear and front, what am I going to do with aftermarket wheels if I don't go staggered? Cause no aftermarket wheel company sells sets of wheels with different offset. So if 18x8 is what I'm looking at, or 19x8.5, with the same offset value, would it affect anything at all? Am I going to be looking at spacers by chance?

Sorry I'm not very familiar with wheels at all so, your help has been appreciated.
