I am interested to get the 57pro but looking at the offsets is kind making me question if I can use the wheels. For the front I am going with a 17x8 wheel with a 48 offset, I am pretty sure it will fit fine in the front, the back however i don't know. The rim I wanna go with is 17x9 with a +40 offset.

Is +40 pushing it in the back? I know I will most likly have to roll my fenders, but will the offset work and not look like those Trucks with the wheels sticking out 5 inches on each side?

i think for a x9 rear you should have a 48 or so offset for it to tuck in to the well. running a 40 is an 8mm difference, less than a centimeter. so you wont have a problem of it really sticking out much. i think the problem will be rubbing depending on how high your car is and what spring rate you are running.

I have the Teins so all that can be ajusted. Your right. I think 8mm wont really make a difference with the fenders rolled. Hopedully it will work :).

I can get those Pros special ordered in any offset. It's a cast two piece weld. Now the F Pro is also available and in much higher offsets. If you're willing to wait for three months, which you would regardless, these can be ordered in any offset. However i would not recommend this with BBK as there would be no guarantees on caliper clearance at that point.

I just did that for one of my friends on his 350Z. he didn't like the offsets so i pulled some strings and got it custom made for the same price. Hehe. There's a maximum offset but I'm sure it's within range for the IS and 9's in back.

Please do look at the F Pro. I just got a set for myself. They aren't but 20 more per wheel and are a forged bolted two piece wheel.

F Pro guide. Looks like the fitment is there. And probably in stock. I pulled my set from an S2K fitment they had. hehe. Since that has an even higher offset requirement.

Here's a pic of the car i have them on:

Typically I will ask companies if they have wheels for S2K or IS if looking for a high offset wheel.

how much do Gramlight 57fpro weigh?

also from what i have heard, GramLights, although forged are the softer of the forged line that ray's has available. right now the TE's are what im looking at. however thos fpro's look nice.
