I am looking to get some wheels but I am having a rough time wrapping my head around the offset/backspacing. I want to get a flush look both front and rear with the fenders. I am looking at 17x7 ET40 and it looks like stock is 16x6 ET45.

Using this wonderful website: Wheel / tire size calculator / comparer - RIMSnTIRES.com it looks like the wheels will stick out about 10mm farther. This would be sufficient in the front but what about the back? Seems like this car is much deeper in the rear. Should I just get wheel spacers for the back? The wheels I am wanting are Konig Illusion Blues, and they are limited in the offset options they provide (only +40 for 17 inch)


Can you guys help clear my head of and give me some advice on what I should do? :D

width of the wheel does change it, but not as much as offset, i would recommend going at least 7.5 8 if you can. the look is a lot better and would probably ride better since you have more of a surface to ride on. i just got some 17x8 +47 work emotion kais, the front sits almost perfectly flush but the rear i gotta get some 5-10mm spacers for it. definitely recommend something wider or even more aggressive offset. i would go 17x8 like the work 11r pictures you saw
