I have some ET35 17" alloys on my car. They currently have 205/45/17 tyres on, and the car is lowered probably more than 40mm on Jamex springs/shocks.
They rub really badly on the front, the rear is fine except when hitting a really big dip in the road, but the front have started to catch the arch on occasion which is not good. I don't think a 40 profile tyre would make much difference either?
Thing is I really like the wheels Is it possible to get the offset altered a little? If they're ET35 then machining say 5mm or a little more off them would bring them down to a more usable ~ET40 offset, but I have no clue if this is either an option or if it is safe?
