So I found some guy local that is selling his XXR 962 17x7 for $400. Their the gun metal ones. The price is the best so far that i've seen. I'm more in the market for some 17x9, but was wondering if anyone had some 17x7 w/ 5mm or 10mm spacers?

I've seen some 18x8.5 with spacers, but those are 18x8.5 not 17x7.

Any advantages of getting the 17x7 over the 17x9?

The 17x9 looks a bit more aggressive with the +30 offset and 3" lip.

Just putting this up to have some people help me make up my mind.

Oh and if it matters, cops here doesn't like seeing wheels poking out, I don't want to get into a hassle with them because of the 17x9 offsets.

Yeah that is what I'm thinking. 17x7 is a little to small so I was wondering if spacers would make it a little better.

17x9 it is.

Pics or it didn't happen when you pull the trigger on the deal.

I had 17x7 40 offset with 25 mm spacers and now I have 17x9.5 30 offset.......much more happier with my 9.5's. But it's your car man. Do what you please.

Yeah, whenever I find a good deal and if they are 4x114x3. I've found some good deal on 5x114.3, but I don't have the money invested to go 5 lug.

I'm aiming more towards the 17x9, I was just wondering if anyone had their own opinions on 17x7 w/ spacers.

yet at the end of the day, they're *still* XXR's...

point demolished.

Just curious, but does XXR have a bad rep like rotas for knock off wheels?
