i want to do a 4/4 drop with 17x8 front and 17x10 rear
i want the wheels right at the fender lip
not sunken in the wells
what offset is recommended?
also will 225/45 fronts and 255/40 rears be good?
thanx for the help in advance

I think the 225's are to skinny for 8" rims as well as a 255 is to skinny for a 10"rim.....295 on a 10" rim maybe , and a 245 on a 8" rim.....
