Looking to place an order with CCW, and ideally I'd like the rims to sit fender flush, not poking out, or tucked way in. The wheel has a decent amount of concavity to it, and the 2-pc wheels can only be offset to around +20 with the standard 2" lip. Going to the 3-pc, I can get an offset of around +35, with more range for adjusting the size of the lip, 1-1.5" ideally for me. Any thoughts or suggestions, wheel will be a 17x7. Sucks with having the car not out for very long and having exact specs for what does and doesnt work..thanks fellas!

i'd expect that the companies that make the wheels would be able to calculate the exact specs to make it sit flush, no?

Why don't you go a littler wider? I'd do 17x8 et35. Do you want a stretched tire? A meatier tire? The tire size wille come into play as well. How low do you plan on dropping the car?

Not planning on stretching it, was just going to do a stock width and tire size offset a bit more aggressive. I may look into a 8", but I feel like I'm bound to run into rubbing issues.

I'd do a 215/40/17 or a 215/45/17 on a 17x8 wheel. You could probably do a 38 offset without rubbing fender or shock with that size.
