Default Wheel specs for stock body

Shopping for wheels (particularly: Advans RS2, Wedsport TC105N, CE28N)
Trying to determine what specs to get that will have the most flush fitment possible on a stock body s. The car is lowered by about 1.25" but height can be changed to compensate for the wheels. Only thing I do not want to go into is the rolling/pulling fender route.

Would love some suggestions from actual individuals who were able to successfully do it. Heard from pretty knowledgeable folks to go forth with a 60+ offset if I am doing 17x9 and 50+ offset for 17x8.

Nothing will ever really look flush if you don't roll fenders. But yeah the stuff you mentioned will be a bit bigger I guess?

I can help! I deal with a lot of stock body fitment S2000s.

17x9.0 +60ish all around is a great fitment if you want to go squared.

17x7.5 +50ish Front and 17x9.0 +60ish rear is great as well if you want to go staggered.

TC150N is discontinued and has been replaced by the TC105X. But they dont make stock fender sizes unfortunately. Advan is great because they offer the stock fender sizes and also the CE28N as well.

To give you an idea. Here is an AP2 with 17x9.0 +61 Volk ZE40 squared fitment. Fitment is right about flush, but as mentioned earlier in this thread you cannot be "flush" without rolling your fenders IMO. So these are slightly sunk in, but this is the best no fender mod fitment! Let me know if interested man, I can get you great pricing on all the wheels you mentioned (besides the TC105N since they are discontinued.)

Generally yes those wheel specs is what you need if you don't to roll the fenders. You also need to keep any sort of lowering you do to the car within reason. The lower you drop the car the bigger chance there is that you could damage something specifically the fronts. Rears may make a sound but are far less likely to have actual damage. The fronts fenders on the car on the other hand are very fragile and you generally won't hear them rubbing until the tire grabs the front fender. Anyways those specs are fine just keep the drop moderate and be careful in situations with the wheels turned and the suspension is compressed IE driveways or under hard cornering.

I found Prodrive GC-07J with ASM specs 17x7.5 +51 front and 17x8.5 +55 rear work really well. I'm using 215/45/17 and 245/40/17 AD08R tyres with no problem. No body modifications required even when lowered and capable of fitting spoon monoblock and ap racing calipers. Not too sure if it's flush enough for you. You can check some photos here. It's quite a popular wheel on S2000s in Japan. https://downshiftaus.com/2018/an-aft...-asm-yokohama/

Only downside is that the face is flat if you're looking for concave wheels and that they're discontinued since 2012.

Other wheels i can think of which fit well in my books are Mugen MF10 17x7.5 +52 front and 17x8.5 +59 rear and CE28 17x7.5 +50 front 17x9 +63 rear.
