Im lookin to get some 17x8 or 9s but dont know the perfect offset, nothing to ridiculous, i want a nice flush look, no crazy camber either, and also what would be a perfect size to stretch on a 8 or 9, again nothing to crazy, roads here in ny are not that great ! Lol

215/40/17 on a 17x9 is what most people run. no tire really stretches on a 17x8

I'm in ny and I have a 17x9 with a 215-45 tire, and it's fine. But I don't daily it. Normally a lower number than 35 offset on a 9 in inch wide wheel you need to roll your fenders. I had to do all for with barely any camber

17x9 ~25 is flush IMO. Which is about equal to 17x8 ~20. Rolled fenders of course. Can't really be flush without rolling fenders

A 245/40 on a x9 fits the rim perfectly. Looks like the tire is supposed to fit the rim size. For offset +35 all around is the easiest to do.

But honestly, sometimes people can pull off the 255/40 on the x9 wheels. Thats a fine ass look as well

doesnt matter. get at least a 245. even with 225 with bolt ons in first- second i could have used a bigger tire

need a little advice here. what tires size should i get for 17x9 if i want the height drop of fender lined right on the tire no gap? i was thinkin 245 may be a too wide for that drop and cause rub issue. maybe 215 with a minor stretch?

Yessir...245 is about flush with the rim..anything below will have a stretch. You can go 215 if you want less camber but I would feel safer with a 225
