you want a +30 offset on a 8" wheel, not negative

that would still stick out a little bit i think...well depends on what you stock offset is pull your center cap and see what is should be +23mm since its 15x6 atleast thats what mine is...

to sit flush on a 15x8 you will need atleast +25-30mm offset i think...im going 20x8.5 prob and i need +35-40 to sit flush...but im gonna get a 30 prob and it sits 3mm outside fender...

so you should look for a 15x8, 5.5 backspace (5.25 might fit), and +25-30 offset...thats what i would aim for...

hey duckie i went ahead and ran those numbers and if you go with these it should be good on inside clearance BUT will stick 8mm (.3") outside of fender...so it might not be bad might have to do some trimming on the fender maybe...

if you are looking to sit flush you need atleast a 27mm offset and that would bring it in 1/2 inch closer...so find a 25mm and you should sit near perfect...

also if you lower it you will have to run smaller sidewall to make sure it dont rub...my stocks rub on decent dips and im 3/4 dropped...a 65 or 70 series tire would be best...prob 65 being the better...

ok one more thing these numbers are all according to the calculator im not saying to go right ahead and get them...if i did and u got them and they dont fit then i look like an ass...lol so im just saying sccording to the calculator it looks like it would fit but i suggest test fit before buying...
