17x8 et40 are my choice. Fitment is perfect with 295/70/17. No cutting or mods needed at all.

For 275 width you do not need to mod anything regarding tire fitment up to ~33". For a 295 you'd only need, theoretically, a -50mm offset wheel vs factory -60 to clear the same space as oem inside. Anything further from the hub (ie lower et number or more positive offset value) is making it more likely to have contact at the fender liner, fender, washer reservoir, etc... Therefore, the smaller your tire diameter can be for any given level of modification.

Shoot for 40 offset if you ask me.

Are you having to run spacers with this 17x8 40mm setup? Or an adapter to get to 5x150 spacing?

Definitely no spacers. That's kinda the point of buying wheels that are machined to your own custom specs.

With Braid you tell them what style you want and then what offset and the vehicle/lug pattern it's going on. They'll verify fitment from a previous build or ask for additional hub clearances as needed so that the wheels fit as is.

Spacers in the 100 world mostly exist to help wheels clear the unusually large hub given the snug 5x150 pattern on the lugs. Some folks like the looks, but I think if the 100 front hub accepted more aftermarket wheels you'd see far fewer spacers running around the community.

I was interested in avoiding spacers for a few reasons:
1. Looks. Spacers add too much poke for my taste. You can get thin spacers, but then you end up with weird low profile hardware (bolt on spacers) or reduction in lug thread engagement (bolt through spacers).
2. Tire Tuck: Harder to tuck a tire that's sitting further out from the hub.
3. Complexity during maintenance/repairs.
4. Potential failure point. Spacers rarely come loose, but they can. Putting some spacer money towards custom wheels that negates the spacer made sense for me.

Not to mention spacers add unsprung weight. Not something you'll easily feel in a land yacht like the 100, but still never a good thing.
