Offset question

Hey guys, so a buddy of mine is offering me a good deal on 18x9 rims w/offset of 38mm.
From what I've read that'll give me less clearance to my susupension.. Will this cause rubbing issues?
Currently running bullits17x8
Lowered 3inches on coilovers.
Any insight is appreciated

What is the current offset of the 17x8 wheels? The lower the number in mm will make the wheel/tire move outward in respect to the fender lip. 1mm is equal to .039" plus a tad more. A 50mm offset is equals 1.95". A 24mm offset equals 0.936". The difference between the two is 1.024" which is means the wheel will move outward by 1.024". Plug in your offsets and see what you get. Tire size will change as well. Correct me if I'm wrong here. An 8" wheel uses a P245 and a 9" wheel uses a P255 which is wider. This is another dimension that has to be considered.

Current wheels are stock which I belive are 24 offset.
I don't want to have to run spacers 😨

I think we need to get another member to chime in on this. There maybe a problem do the 3" lowering and I don't want to guess on that. I wish I could help you more.

How sure are you on the 3" drop? Maybe it's just your picture angle but your ride didn't seem quote that kow. I'll have to check what my old rim offset looked like, but I didn't have any issues with my 18X9 and 18X10 setup on my old ride with a 2.5" front and 2" rear drop.

Never mind mine was a +24mm offset. Will your buddy let you test fit them?

Might raise it a little. Oil pan is taking a beating. Making a skid plate. I'll see how that works out before raising it

If its that low raise it jeez... No idea why ppl have to be that low ever. That little suspension travel will actually hurt performance as well.
