    Hi all, I'm thinking of getting a set of 17" ZCW angel blacks for the derv. However the width is only 7j, I want the wheel to line up with the arch on the rear perfectly. My question is what et would I require to achieve this?

    Id say stick to same all round you could probably do et35 fronts and et32 rear for more rear poke/stance.

    For stance you'd need poke and a slight stretch if running low to really pull it off.

    Already have about 4mm stretch on the rear, I don't want the wheels picking out, just sat nice and snug under the lip of the arch

    My AMGs was 8.5j with 225/45 tyre was ET35. I put a 10mm spacer on the back and they lined up a lot better with the spacers than with out.
    The fronts could do with 5mm to be spot on as well.

    Gunny, you should know the ET of the wheels before buying?
    If they are 35, fit them and see how much space there is between the arch and side of the wheel to help spec up spacers.
