    NEED PICS! Difference between 36 and 50mm offset for 17x11

    I am going to buy some wheels for my Formula, and would love to see the differences between the 36mm and 50mm offset for 17x11 wheels. I don't want the wheel to go past the fender....i think that would look wierd. I also have the pro-kit on the car.

    Thanks in advance!

    triple-black

    50mm on my car.
    Note that the fronts have a 7/32" spacer... so that is equivalent of a 42mm offset (in the front only)
    The back is 50mm no spacer.

    My first pair of 11's that came in were 36mm by mistake. We decided to go ahead and mount them just to see how far they would stick out using 315's. It looked awful

    I want get some 17-9.5 for the front and 17-11 for the rear for me 01 formula i understand that the 50mm back spacing would be best how about for the front for the 17-9.5 what would be a good backspacing. 56mm would that be good or the 38mm for the front. thanks in advance.
