I'm using the RPF1 in a 17x9.5 with 275/40-17 and they are great. 16 lbs each and tons of clearance for my Cobra R brakes. I swear I can feel the difference in acceleration going from a 25 lb wheel to these and the suspension feels better too.

I have no idea what the offset is. The guys at Discount Tire ordered them for me. In my sig you see that the car is a 2003 mach1.

On the Tire Rack website the 17x9.5 RPF1 for a 2003 Cobra shows a 18mm offset.

I can tell you that I've got about 1/2" of clearance between the spoke and the caliper.

A guy walked into the second classroom session late, sweating profusly, hair straight up with dirt all over him. He sat down, raised his hand and said: "please explain brake fade to me!"

I think you will find them to be a great upgrade.

Running RPF1 17x10 with a 275 tire on it. Fits pretty good, super light, pretty affordable. I do hear their are soft though. Having said that, mine have been fine so far.
