    Welcome to TW Mater. It would help if we knew exactly what the size was. For example, 16x8, 17x9, etc.

    OK, SO GOING TO A 10 OFFSET WOULD BE OK THEN?
    IM NOT REALLY SURE WHAT OFFSET THE STOCK WHEELS ARE...
    I JUST DONT WANT IT TO EFFECT THE HANDLING OR WEAR ANYTHING OUT TOO QUICKLY FOR GONG TO A NON STOCK OFFSET. YA KNOW.

    265 mm = 10.43"
    65% of 265 = 172.25 mm = 6.78"
    17 inch wheel diameter

    10.43" wide by 30.56" tall tire (6.78+6.78+17)

    Do you know the offset? 17" wheels come with several available Backspacings.
