xxr 526 17x10

Hey curious if I could get some imput on offset. I wanna do the xxr 526 on my 05 civic, but I wanna do a 17x10 for max lip an flush look. So I'm curious what offset I would have to run to clear the suspension.

What kind of suspension are you running on the civic? And are you willing to do fender work if it may be required?

They're going to be a tough fit. I had 17x9 +25 on my 06 civic and I barely cleared the rears at my height and camber maxed out. (215/40/17 tires)

I have rear fenders already rolled an a running tein coilovers in all 4 corners removed front inner fender liners for clearen. When you say fender work what else do you mean? I have been looking online an some ppl say you can some you can't. The widest I've seen on a em2 Is 18x9.5 he had a bit of a rub on his lower arm. Also I have my coil turned right down wanna go low any ideas ? Thanks guys

What I meant by fender work would be rolled (which you have done) and also pull.

Like mentioned earlier, it'll be a tight fit. Anything will work if you put effort into it.
Usually et+25 is safe enough. What are the offset do they come in? Sorry I would look it up but I'm kinda lazy LOL sorry

I think a +20 offset maybe +25. Yahoo so I have rolled the fenders but how would I pull them?

I've only pulled fenders by using a fender roller, while it rolled the inner lip.

Not necessarily, some have pulled off 18 esp if it has a nice deep/fat lip on em2.
I've seen one on nwp a while back.
But it'll have to depend on what his car looks like
