about to order 17'' front runners... do the 17x4.5 with 2.2 bs sit in too much or should i go with a 17x5 with 2.2bs... currently running 15x6 with 3.5 bs and seems to sit in a bit but not sure if that's how standard wheels sit as car never came with stock wheels...

I cant tell you how they would look but off your numbers you provided, with your 15x6, 3.5bs setup, you have 2.5 inches of rim coming off of the hub face. With the other wheels, the 17x4.5, 2.2bs, there would be 2.3 inches of rim sticking out from the hub face. So that wheel would sit in .2 of an inch than your current setup. The 17x5, 2.2bs, would have 2.8 inches of rim sticking out from hub face which would be .3 inches more than your current setup( so it would be out about ¼ more sticking out). Hope this helps.

I have no front on the car at all so can't borrow anyone's wheels to trial fit. Your numbers are what i sort of though it would be.. Everyone seems to run 4.5 with 2.2 bs...
