    Planning on pulling the trigger to get this.

    However, really want to know who has done a large and wide rim for 2017 Prime’s?

    Hubcentric rings help to ensure a perfectly centered wheel on the chassis hub, relying on just the 5x100 bolt pattern
    does not guarantee a smooth ride.

    What size tire are you planning on running ??

    Concerning your wheel choice: The wheel will stick out about ~35mm's more & the tires will stick out about ~25mm's more.
    You might want to mock something up on your current wheels/tires to make sure it works...

    Fuel economy will take a BIG hit with your proposed combo, be prepared.

    A little further on that: any aftermarket rim will have an oversized hub opening, basically one-size-fits-all. Toyota rims will have openings that are same size as hub (plus a slight clearance tolerance), don't need adapter rings.

    17” 86 wheels with 20mm spacers. Had to run spacers so the front wheels would not hit the brake caliper.

    So by having these spacers is because the offset of the rim is not ideal spacing?

    Why can’t the rim itself just be all in one with the proper offset rather than applying a O-ring and expect the worst of it breaking apart and have an accident ‍♂️

    It sounds like you're confusing hubcentric rings & wheel spacers, whether you are or are not, you should spend a little time researching these things before you dive into your proposed aftermarket wheel/tire purchase.

    Based on this statement, you really don't understand how this stuff works yet. Please do some reading....

    LOL, please buy the wheels you want & the corresponding tires, it will be an expensive lesson for you...

    Oh, & just so we're clear, the hubcentric rings I linked are made out of metal.
