i have a chance to get the rims i want, but they are a +38 offset in the back, with a 17x9 wheel. should i buy them, or wait for the +30 offset, because i am looking for a more flush look on mmy s14.

I have 18x8 with a 30mm offset on my s14. They fit pretty close to the edge of the inside of the fender, without rolling the fenders. To get to the same inner fender clearence for a 9 inch wheel I would have to go up with the offset 12.7mm(0.5 of an inch) because the wheel will stick out 12.7mm more on both sides because it is a 9 inch wheel(1 inch = 25.4mm). If you run the 9s then the offset should be approx. 42mm, 38mm will look good and you may have to roll the inside fender lip.
