I spent some time and took off a wheel and did some measuring and here is what I came up with:
1.Wheel size: 17X8
2.Bolt pattern: 5X 120mm
4.Backspace: 6 and 1/2 inches
5.Brake clearance: 16 and 1/2 inches at back most edge and 15 inches at mounting flange
7.Mounting pad diameter :6 and 3/4 inches
8.Center bore diameter: 2 and 3/4 inches
9.Distance the hub extends out from rotor: 2 and 1/4 inches
10.Thickness of the caliber: 1 and 1/2 inches
11.With wheel on the closes point between the wheel spokes and the brake caliber is 2 and 1/2 inches and the furthest is 2 and 3/4 inches. The OE wheel spokes bow out from the hub to the rim.
12.With the OE wheels, amazing enough, the tire and wheel already come outside the wheel well on the front and back ( from bottom up to about half the wheel well) and are just about even with the top of the wheel well--you might have between and quarter to a half inch before the sidewall of the tire would be entirely outside the wheel well at the top. Seems like a poor design as it sits now all the road mess is going to come up on the side of the car. Interesting at the bottom front and rear of the fender the tire comes out about two inches.
13.The maximum backspace for the Torg Thrust II is 5.75 inches which, if I am thinking about this right , means the tires will protrude another 3/4 inches making them a issue for hitting the upper wheel well lip in the front when the struts compress and the same problem in the back with weight in the trunk or backseat
If anyone has additional information or a solution let me know.
