quick help please

I am getting some new rims. Tire shop bent my 15's and will pay for part of my new rims.

I have gone over the threads and was set on 17 x 9.5 -5.5 bs for the rear. The rims i picked were the Foose Legends and only come in 17 x 9 5.25 or 5.75 BS. I picked 5.25 since it would take .25 from each side.

The front 17 x 8 only comes in the BS of 5.0 or 4.5, not the 4.75. should i go with the BS of 4.5, or go down to a 17 x 7 with a BS of 4.25?

Thanks any help or photos of these would help.

sales man is waiting on the call

Re: quick help please

If it was me, I would not be in a rush to buy.

Are you sure they just don't want to sell you some new wheels? I would do some research on pricing first.

Re: quick help please

its not that I'm in a rush. I was planning on gettig new rims fairly soon, its just they offered to buy me a new rim (any style) or replace my 21 year old rim. I figured with the credit and not buying new 15 inch tires it is time to take the dealo 17s. The rims i picked do not come in the 9.5 in rears. and the bs on the front is a 1/4 on each side of the ideal BS.

just wanting to make sure a 17 x 8 with 4.5 BS will work.

right now car is on jack stands so i do need to get something.
