Looking for insight on wheels

Hey guys, Iím considering buying new wheels for my 2015, ran across these on Amazon and I like them. Wondering if anyone has any insight on wheel size, offsets etc.? I am wondering if these will fit without issue. I am considering lowering the car, in the spring. Let me know what you think!

Konig Forward Black Red Stripe Wheel (16x7"/4x100mm) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B003M8HAM8/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_h6d5Bb7P3ZDAX

Iím also considering other options, saw someone recently with bronze colored wheels on their modern steel metallic and it looked good. Any product links or insight on sizing would be appreciated. Also, I am planning on running stock 16 inch tires

Offset is at 40 if I'm reading the listing correctly. You may have some rubbing after lowering as the stock rim offset is 53 (EX and up) unless you add camber or do some fender modding.

Thanks for the insight (isn't that a Honda model? anyway, I definitely don't want any fender modifications, I'd like to be able to re-sell the car in the future.. I'll keep hunting .

You'll be hard pressed to find any aftermarket wheels with as high of an offset as the stock rims though. If you do, post it.

Team Dynamic wheels used to offer customization of offset. Their Pro-Race 1.2 were nice wheels Had a set a couple years ago. I assume they still offer the service?

yah, unless you plan to lower your ride, ET40's going to have a bit of a poke on the front. my GK runs ET42 16x7 for winter and honestly i think it looks pretty crappy but its the old winter set from my '12 GE i sold a while back, so been using it to use up the tires.

Do you guys think if I donít lower the car and use the 40 offset wheels Iíll be ok? Is anyone running 40s like these? I was really hoping to keep the factory 16 inch tires because they are brand new.

By ok do you mean not rub? Yes you should be ok if you don't lower the car and run 40 offset wheels. The front will just poke out a bit.

If you use the factory 185/55-16 tires, offset 40 should be ok, though I would suggest offset 45 at least. However, keep in mind that tire manufacturers recommend 6.5 inches as the maximum wheel width for 185 tires.

These are 38s if I remember correctly. Fronts do stick out. Looks kinda goofy, but after 2 summers I haven't had an issue with rubbing. I'm a pretty aggressive driver too.

Hey, I just want to thank everyone for their input on this topic, I decided to leave the wheels alone for now, looks like a 45 offset is what is needed. This way I am not limited in lowering options later if I decide to do it. Thanks again! ( I did order a set of jdm red center caps for the wheels, that would be nice for now )
