Hi fellas!
I'm thinking about some of the aftermarket 17" rims on tirerack.com, but I'm concerned about the proper fitment ie. offset, and especially, how the centerbore of the rim fits onto the hub of the car, as compared to the OEM rims. How has everyone found their non-OEM rims fitting? Any noticeable wobble due to gaps, etc?

Thanks for the input!

Any wheels the Tire Rack will sell you will either be hubcentric or will include the proper hubcentric adapter rings toprovide for a snug fit. Running a non-hubcentric wheel or wheels without hubcentric adapters guarantees you vibration and steering shimmy.

As far as fitment, if the Tire Rack says it will fit with a certain size tire on a certain offset wheel, it will fit because they are very conservative with their tire sizing. Make sure you tell the sales person (You are going to call Eddie at x369, right?) about any suspension mods you have done.
