Anything stamped on the back that might help you identify it? Personally I rock 17s in the front and 20s in the back!

I finally found it. It's a G line wheel but they only have 17x7.5 and 18x8. So I'm just go with new wheels soon or later

You can get those wheels refurbed for $125 each. By light do you mean they light up?

They make 18x8, you don't want to get those for the front to match your rears?

Are you sure they won't clear? all 330's had 17's from the factory (except for the zhp's)

Why? Its not going to look any better. Square will actually drive better and be cheaper in the long run because you can rotate your tires.

He said they light, not they are light. That's why I wasn't sure. If they lit up I was going to tell him to ditch those ghetto wheels for something a bit more mature.

You're running unbranded ebay wheels, and you're worried about spacers being unsafe?

welcome to high school

Get some vmr's or bbs wheels and stagger those.. Or be smart and make use of the two 18's you have and buy 2 more 18's... Then you can make a chair from the 17" wheels.
