Default Winter Wheels - 17x8 +35mm?

This is my first winter with my genpu MS3, and I'm searching for some cheap eBay rims.

I found these 17x8 wheels that should fit, I just don't know about the 35mm offset. I have stock suspension, will these rub? Does the $399 price tag mean these wheels are $hit?

What's a typical tire size for this setup?

those should be fine. I'm running 17x9+48s which puts my wheel rim as close to the fender as a 17x8+35. With 205 or 215 tires you should be fine with no roll or anything.

If you're investing in a winter set, steelies + blizzaks can be had for ~5 or 600 iirc

If you're looking for winter wheels & tires, going wider than stock on the wheels is probably something you want to avoid. (assuming you want to put the snow tires on them and not on your stockers)

Agree with hamfisted, thinner always better to cut through snow. I had some Thule chains too that saved my ass a few times. Not good to have on for an extended time, but nothing beats them if things get really rough out there.

Just to add to this... I ran an 18x8+35 with a 225/40/18 lowered on CS Springs, and the rear rubs with 3 people in the car. But if you're stock height and NOT running 225s you should be more than fine.

Leaving aside the potential rubbing issues, 35mm offset is going to sand your sides pretty bad in the winter. I'm running a 205/50/r17 tire with 40mm ET and it's not that pleasant, they're as wide as my summer 48mm ET with 225mm tires on them.
