Volk Racing GTV 17x9 / 5x114.3 / Offset +55 fit?

Looking into this with DG springs? Is it worth using the wobble bolt? I can get this directly from Japan.

Volk Racing GTV 17x9 / 5x114.3 / Offset +55

on 245/40/17 tires



will this fit w/o rubbing? Or should I go +43 offset?

43 offset will fit more flush but 55 offset is a super safe offset to run.

245/40 tires might be a bit excessive though.

It's 9" wide so I thought 245/40 would be perfect fit...still debating. Thanks! I also need to know how much this wheel weigh.

245 will most definitely not be a perfect fit.
55 is a decent offset, but you could run into inner clearance issues.

Yea. I'd see if you can test fit a similar offset. I test fit some 18x9 and they would run in to inner clearance issues

43et is an achievable offset if you start with the 55et. If you start with the 43et you'll be in the low 30's or so because of adapters & DG springs in my opinion aren't really low enough to pull of a 30's offset.

245's might have some rubbing issues. that's a pretty beefy tire.

I hope you got a good deal on these. If not push them for a better deal. These are discontinued. Once inventory clears that's it.
