Are those the stock rims? What is the size and offset....where did you get the spacers and how much? Do the outside of the tires ever touch the fenders if bottomed out? It looks good and I want to do it too...thanks for the post

They are aftermarket rims by Ronal.

Size: 17" x 8.0"
Offset: 36mm
Tires: 225/45/17 FR, 245/40/17 RR

I got spacers from BMP Design. They are $129.95 for a pair. You'll have to order longer bolts @ $4.50 each to clear the spacers.

Size of spacer is 15mm. I actually did some measurement & calculations based on my 36mm rim size and came up with .5" or 12mm spacer. Since they don't come in 10mm, I chose the 15mm ones. (FYI, they come in 5, 15, 20, and 25mm)

I have stock shocks. So far my tires have NEVER rubbed against the fenders even when bottomed out.

Thanks for your interest in my post and good luck!

Richard :-)
