That offset is far to high. Wheels would probably be in contact with struts. If they weren't (95% sure they would be) they will be sucked in. Check out the wheel sizing and offset thread for 185s. Tons of relevant info.

I figured cause I think the offset is for a brz/frs.

What size are you running on your car, +22 with a 15 mm spacer in the rear?
Or do I have it backwards? What about 45 +10 mm spacer?

I've got 17x8 +45 all around, I think I needed a 5mm spacer in the rear to just barely clear the coilovers and the fronts hit the frame without spacers. With a 17x9 you'll need an extra half inch of spacer just to bring the inside edge to the same place as my 17x8.

Hmm so do you know of a good offset/spacer? I just like the flat face on rpf1 and I know the 8 has just a slight convex.

Were those a custom made set? I can't find that size anywhere.

Do you run at all? Did you roll your fenders?

Just get 35mm rear spacers, extended front lugs and a 10mm front spacer and you've got the same thing as CS.

Alright thanks, sorry offset is something I haven't been able to wrap my mind around yet.

Use this http://rimsntires.com/specspro.jsp to play around with fitments, it helped me sort out offset. Spacers reduce the offset so some info from the wheel fitment thread + some playing around on the site will help you sort out what you need.
