I'm looking at a set of Roh RT 17x8s, they are the right stud pattern 5x114.3 but the guy doesn't know the offset. They were on a 2wd Hilux. I was planning on going over to measure the offset, but what is the minimum and maximum I can fit on the ute? It's bit of a trip so I want to know in advance.

They will go on the ute when it is lowered, I'm using King Lows and reset leaves in the rear so nothing too close to the ground.

i have some ROH RT's , 17x8's in E series offset.
i just measured them,
laying the rim on the ground with the outer face upwards the outer rim measures 230mm from the ground.
with a ruler across the hub mounting face it measures 115mm off the ground
im guessing they use a 0 offset rim
E series rims are actually a +6 offset, so these rims would sit 6mm closer to the inside of the car
i dont think u will have any problems if they have this offset

That's cool, I suppose it will help keep my wheel track within the limits for the RTA too. I'll have a look tonight and hopefully they're as he describes.

Thanks for the info.
