Default 17x7 +25 offset???

Been searching for months on Japanese auction sites for a specific wheel. I think I finally came across the wheel with the correct fitment.

As far as I know there shouldn't be a problem with these, but just wanted to see what the experts on here have to say before I commit to an overseas transaction.

Size: 17x7 +25 offset. I have na XB with 2" drop, and will probably be running 215/40/17 tires. Any issues anyone can think of?

Thanks!!!

you'll be ok...
for the front thats good...
for the rrear you might have to roll your fenders just in case...
plus if you add 5mm to the rear it will look better...

just so you know im running 17x8 +30 in the front +20 in the rear (thanks to OTG shims)..w/ 205/40 tires..plus i have about a 3-4 inch drop...

if i could do it all over again..
i would get a +20 for the front and a +15 for the rear...
..

to sum it up...
no issues at all....
if any ... minor rubbing in the rear but rolling them fenders would take care of that.

sorry for the long post.

that's the exact wheel/tire combo for my head40s. before i got air suspension, i would rub with my wheels turned at full lock on an uphill. rubbing in the back was minimal although there with a full load of people. of course those issues are a little better now with air when you can pump up if necessary. i would say with a 2" drop you would need to roll your rear fenders.

Thanks for all the input! Those are the wheels I'm after Chapelle! They're like yours, but all chrome and have a different center cap than yours. Might have a lead on them if I can get someone to bid/import them. Hopefully my contacts will come through.


UPDATE!!!!!

The auction ended early. Someone bought them for 22,000 yen ($200)!!! So upset! These were in my reach, but couldn't get a hold of my contact to bid!
