Just like it says, Will 17x7.5 with 45mm offset work on a 1.5" drop stock suspension?
Will the offset be a problem and how to resolve this? Maybe spacers?

Thanks for your help,
Jesse

Same combo I have, no problems. Although I have rear coilovers, check for clearance back there.

No coilovers, but hope to very soon!

Here are the ones I got. I got these for $300 with about 60% or 70% tread left on the tires.

I will be selling the ones off my car if you want to make an offer. They have four decent tires with plenty of tread still on them. But they are dry rotting. The rims are VERY clean. And to make things better for you. Either this weekend or next or maybe the next I will be going down to Atlanta by hwy 85 to pick these up if we make a deal I can meet you some where along the way.
