Default Oh shit, did I screw up? Offset help!

I ordered a set of wheels to be made 17x8.5 et 29. Will the inner clearence be ok, and am I going to have a little poke as intended?

Yeah. I thought those specs would work after running them through the wheel calculator but I was still nervous being that I spent so much on wheels that are non returnable I assume haha. Look great farmguy btw!

^^Thanks both of you guys!

You may have to use spacers regarding inner clearence, but that depends on hight, type of coilovers and tyrestretch Either way it will be tight on both sides haha

Be sure to post pics asap! I want to see this

Im on 17x8.5 et 30 all the way around. Im also an r56 not sure if you are r56 or r53. If you interested in pics ive posted a few on here or find me on ig same name and lots posted. No spacers to clear bags and its a little poke up front running -1.7 camber and I sit flush in the rear when layed out but aired up it pokes a little.

Looking at Famguy's mini, has me a little worried as I'm going to be fitting 16x9et20 wheels on my R53. Anyone have any idea or experience on what kinda camber I'm going to be running to clear? I plan on running 205/40s on them. Lowering on springs not bags. And on another note, sick mini famguy

springs or coilovers? Springs won't get you low enough for 205/40/16

You won't NEED much camber, but 2.5 degress all around would certainly help.
