So after spending some time looking around I settled on the ASA AR1's in black for my DTS. There's only one problem, as there always is with me. They don't come in 17's with the correct offset.

I don't really want to go to 18 for a couple reasons. One is that I just bought tires and don't want to buy new. Secondly I don't want to loose anymore ride quality, especially when I'm going to do the Eibach springs already.

So I guess this is more of a rant hoping for options than it is really a question or something.

I just wanted to babble. It's not often I can look at something and just know it's right.

OK now I have a question.

The factory wheels are 17x7.5 with a 40mm offset, correct? And the bolt pattern is 5/115 right? But I see a lot of places offering wheels that are 17x7 and / or 5.114.3

So what would be the result of a wheel that's 17x7.5 with a 45 mm offset. Will that work? 5mm is less than an 1/8 of an inch.

I guess the bottom line is, what will work for me?
