Rota Grids 17.9 or 17x9.5 +?? Offset

Hey everyone I'm kind of new to this stance and wheel thing. I was looking at some Rota Grids and I've seen them on a couple RSXs here. I have a 2003 Acura RSX BASE. Its lowered with Neuspeed Sportline Springs. So the front drop is about 1.5-2 inches off the ground and the back and 1.5 inches lowered. I want to go with an aggressive look. I dont know if I'm going to have to roll my fenders or not. I was thinking 17x9 or 17x9.5 but don't know what offset would look good. I also need to know the tire size I was thinking 245 or 225. Let me know if you guys have any suggestions or any pictures. Thanks.

17x9 is all you really need. you probably wont get the stance your looking for either with just springs. upgrade to coilovers.. you will have to roll your fenders

So your saying I should buy coil overs first before I try to do an aggressive stance?

17x9 +35 is the most common everyone chooses in a x9 rim and tire sizes 235/40, 245/40 and 255/40 are some of the other common sizes

i agree with the coilovers first.
that will help fine tune an aggessive wheel setup which is needed

it all depends on the set=up , i've seen RSX's and some look really agressive without necessarily having some big old offset and some streched tires. But what I could recommend is 17/9 in front and 17/9.5 in the back since you don't turn your wheels in the back you can go wider. I would go with a lot of offset, this creates a look for agressivness , i'd even go up to +20 in front and +30 in the back all depends , its a really tricky subject

I've got 17x9.5 +30 running 235 tires with crsx springs. Not as low as i would like, but i just had to roll the rear fenders to fit, and cut some plastic in the front.
