Hi all, I'm thinking of ordering a '09 JCW
The very first thing that I would do is to change the wheels/rims.
I'm not a big fan of huge wheels, rather I like smaller wheels the better.
So, I was wondering what would be the smallest wheel size that I can fit on the '09 JCW
a few more question if you don't mind..
I am also thinking of keeping the 17 inch size.
If I go for 17x8 with +36 offsets, would I be rubbing?
Not planning to lower the car or change the suspension in any way - want to keep everything stock (other than the wheels).
If +36 will rub, how about +42?
(It says rim depth is 56/+36, 50/+42, if that info is needed)
Or, should I keep the size as the stock, at 17x7?
In this case, +36 has rim depth of 44, +42 has 37.
(I assume +30 offset would not fit)
I want to have the maximum poke of the wheels as far as there is no rubbing.
Does wider wheels have more poke?
(I know that smaller offset gives more poke tho..)
I'm a newb when talking about the wheels, so any comment would be helpful.
