Hello,

Posted under wheel and tire but got no replies. Really want to get to the bottom of this dilemma.

Searched many different forums and found a lot of info but no concrete details on my set up.

I really want to run these style 5's not staggered I found on my stock hight E46 sedan.

F 17x8 205/40/17 et20
R 17x8 205/40/17 et20

I need to know if hub sizes will be an issue?

Also what ideal offset am I gunning for for my stock hight? Was thinking of gunning for a 40 offset for front and rear with either a 205 tire or something fatter but need some help in that department. I heard a 5mm spacer will make the fronts fit right (no caliper rub) but not sure if thats the best thing if I intent to lower it at some point.

Any help would be appreciated, really trying to figure this out.

I have the same size style 5's apart in my basement getting polished. They will fit no problem, you just need the hub rings. They shouldn't rub with that tire either.
