    7" wide is nowt so anything from 38-49mm would be good and still enable u to slam it on its arse.
    if u dont intend droppin it that much then u can alter the offset and say anything from 35-49 will be good.

    personally I would advise a safe 38-49 and then youve got the option of lowering it anything upto 60-70mm without any arch rubbing issues.

    Personally I would see if u can get 7.5 x 17 - same offset applies but wider wheels are better - especially on the bus

    Thank for the advice matey, will see if Momo do those in 17 x 7.5, and the bus will not be lower for now, but maybe later on, thank again matey...

    just found out Momo only do the FXL in 17 x 7, but also 17 x 8, will 17 x 8 be ok if i dont lower the Zaffy? also do i go for 215 or 225 tyres for 17 x 7/17 x 8 wheels?

    Not sure TBH, have a look through Mysterymachines old posts using the search function, he's got 19's on his and If I remember correctly, they are 8 inch.
    A wheel pro may well post in here sometime to sort you out

    Having said that, I'd happily bet a pretend tenner that you could use the 18inch, 8 inch 47/49ET wide rims with 225/40/18 tyres on an unlowered bus with no problems.
