I did a search for offset, but couldn't find my similar question. I am interested in Buying a set of wheels for my Sc. They are made for the new T-Bird and Lincoln LS's. They are 18" x 8.5 in the 5x4.25 bolt pattern with a 48mm offset. This offset is the part I am unsure of. I will be lowering my car 2" with Jamex springs and tokico shocks. Will this offset not work with my situation? Also the spokes on the rims are connected on the very outside of the lip and curve in a bit (if this even matters). I could get a great deal on them, and was wondering if I will be wasting my time. If this can work what size tires would be best? Thanks for the help

Factory SC wheels have a 39mm offset. The SVT wheel is 17" x 7" with 5.57" backspacing.
