I'd be really curious if a 17 inch fits. A bit disappointed it's 108 and not 114.3

eh as long as I can put a lift kit on, I am not worried; I can get the tires I want when the time comes.

That wheel page shows offset 38-53... I'm wondering where they got those numbers. That's a fairly large range. I wouldn't be too sure yet that everything in that range will fit well. Sure, the wheel might bolt up, but if you put a 38mm offset wheel on a car designed for a 53mm offset you may end up with problems. Plus, you don't know what the load rating of the wheel needs to be. I randomly chose one of the wheels listed on that page and it had a load rating of 1600. No way will that be strong enough for an E. The wheel load is determined by taking 50% of the heaviest axle rating of the vehicle (GAWR – gross axle weight rating). Example; if your heaviest axle weight rating is 3800 lbs then your wheel load requirement would be 1900 lbs. I don't know what the GAWR of the E will be, but I'll bet the rear axle is rated higher than 3200 pounds, probably closer to 3800.

Weight for the MME if it helps.

I wouldnt be surprised if they only went with offset and bolt pattern. Most companies probably wont even check the weight rating.
