Not really sure I want to continue the off-topic "necro" of this thread... But I can't figure out where I'm "arguing w/ myself". Yeah, I didn't go back & edit things to condense the info or remove references from other threads/conversations...

 :lol: nevermind, I think I am the only one that found it funny. I was aware you hadn't gone through and edited.

So all in all as long as the backspace, the distance from the back edge to the mounting surface stays the same you shouldn't run into loading problems, you just need to watch for rubbing? right

I've got chrome 17x8 inch with 4 on 4.5, 125 backspacing and +12 offset they fit perfect. with a 215-45-17 tire they are the same height as factory tires.

With a GT-S, if the offset is right, then yes.

Wow, I'm going to have to clean this out.  Not really s'posed to be a 'discussion' thread.  At least *I* thought it was for posting information to answer FAQ's

As far as the offset goes, those are FWD rims, the offest's a little much (they'd be tucked under the fenders in good shape). Stock offset is +8mm, 15mm doesn't look bad, nor do centerlines. Dunno about width for drifting.
