Can anyone refer me to some decent rim profiles? I was thinking 17x8. The current ones I have sit tucked into the fender well which isn't very appealing.

I'm looking for a profile that sits flush and fills the fender well.

If you can provide pictures/ideas, that would be great.

by Rim (Wheel) "profile" do you mean the sizing of the wheels?

If so, here are two threads that outline ideal wheel specs for different sizes, offsets, etc. One provides a more aggressive "hellaflush" stretched tire fitment, and the other a less aggressive more functional flush wheel setup

Hope that's what you're looking for.

to push the rims out without spacers, you'll need a lower offset. The stock offset i believe is -45 so maybe like -50 or -55.

If you want a perfect fit, you could measure the distance you want to move the wheels out in mm and subtract it from -45 and that'll be the offset you want to use.
