besides fitment does anyone know if there's a big difference in the LOOK of the RT5 between the +38 and +44 offset versions?

I'm on the TRD springs for now and will eventually go with ST coilovers. but just wanna see which would be the optimal choice.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks guys!

Some 10 year old Slipstreams I used to own that I recently re-acquired, and chemically stripped the powdercoat along with new tires, specifically for autox:

From everything I have seen on this forum, +38 would be the way to go. With the +44 offset you might have clearance issues with the tire and the spring perch.

I've never bought rims/wheels before so this will be a very noob question but does anyone know if I can use the stock primacy hp brz tires(215/45r17) on the rota titan 17x9 rims? Any issues if they do fit?? Thanks

Now this is right after wheeldude installed my rims and mounted my stock tires. And this is at a one inch drop on eibach prokit springs. No alignment, no camber bolts, nothing. It was a pretty ugly setup...

once you get an alignment and purchase correct tire size (245/40/17) which i did, it looks way better. i also noticed my springs were settling over time which was a plus.

rim offset.

Hello I'm going to buy some Rota grids for my car! 17's 9 inches wide should I go with 35 or 42 offset? Not planning on lowering the car anytime soon due to the harsh roads here in PA. So the main thing is I don't want to rub anything and don't want the handling to be disturbed. thanks!
