Does the offset on new wheels need to be the same or very close to the original wheel offset?

I don't want to mess up my suspension or wheel bearings.

I have 16" wheels on 2014 LX which I think have a 50mm offset. I'm upsizing to 17". Do I need to be looking at 50mm offset for my new wheels or Is 47mm or 45mm safe? Thanks.

Rim width not diameter needs to be considered in your evaluation of alternative sizes.

I have been looking to match my aluminum rims. But the manufacture is out of business. So I am replacing my aluminum rims with the steel rim that is the same as my spare. The Steel Rims width is 6.0, Aluminum are 6.5.

If changing the width (going wider) you need to convert offset to backspacing and stay as close to OE as you can. There isn't much clearance between the back of the tire/wheel and the suspension components.

I put 20 inch wheel on my CRV 8 1/2 diameter no problem, it just gave me less mileage per gallon cos wider tire more contact with the road
