Gotta make sure I get things right for my needs this time ;-)

Does anyone know an appropriate offset for these 17's with 235s? Is the et40 on the first post just the max or is that the recommended offset for 17x8.5? I'm on a lowered (dinan) setup with stock camber (-.7) up front and about -2.1 in the back, if that helps

Thanks in advance!
The appropriate offset partly depends on the tires you want to run. If this is just street, 235's should be fine with et40 but 255's may rub strut side which in that case you'd probably want a lower offset (or run a spacer to push them out). You're best asking paintpro (apex's sales rep) directly for fitment issues
