I just ordered RSL Concept Pros. They are 17" x 7" My question is will I need to buy new tires as well or will the stock tires fit on these rims? Also I read a thread from keyboard warrior that he had to grind his caliper and have spacers. Why is this if the the spacing is +43. I thought there wouldn't be any issues with these that's why I purchased them. Do I need Spacers? But keyboard also wrote that one side fit better then the other. What gives with this? Any help would be appreciated.

Oh just an FYI I have an '04 Bright Silver Metallic SRT-4 and I can't wait to see these wheels on my car. I got the gunmetal with polished lip

The style of the wheel will determine if they fit without spacers. When I was looking for wheels I ended up going to a wheel place and test fitting a few to make sure they fit without spacers or mods to the caliper. As for the stock tires the 205's will fit and will be ok I used them for a little while, but they just didn't look right. I ended up getting 225's and it looked and handled much better.

Unfortunately the RSL Concept Pro's will NOT fit without spacers.

One would think that with a 43mm offset the wheel has that it would clear the calipers but it does not. The backing of the spoke design is probably the culprit.

When you have an offset of 43-45mm its a hit or miss. All depends on the wheel. My previous Motegi DP6's were 45mm and they fit fine. My current RO_JA wheels are 42mm and they fit fine. Granted both wheels just BARELY clear the calipers but they fit. Like I said its just a hit or miss.

SparxFly, if I were you I would cancel your order immediately and start looking again for another set of wheels. Unless you want to go through the hoopla of adding spacers and shaving calipers and stuff.
