Machining Rims for a different offset--Feedback

I have a set of Rota Grid rims that are 17x8 with +35 offset. I'm thinking of taking them to a shop and having the back machined to remove about 5mm. I just have to check the fitment if it goes in 5mm more in that the wheel won't rub on the inside. I rolled the fender in the back now I just need to relocatethe bumper tab which is the only part hitting on hard bumps. What do you guys/gals think about this idea? Feedback

Why would you do that? You don't need to with those wheels...

I was just thinking about it, I'm going to relocate the rear bumper tab, and I will lower the car about a half inch with ground control coilovers. Do u think I'd be ok and not worry about the wheel rubbing in the back, I have 215/45/17, I was thinking about running 225/45/17 instead. I have speakers in the back and the back goes down a bit cus of them too

Umm...sure, I guess you could do it. You're altering the structure of the wheel a bit, and with the quality of wheels you've chosen I guess it's hit or miss of there being an adverse effect or not. lol

If you are rubbing with a 215/45 it's only going to get worse with a 225/45. It's not really necessary to do anything crazy but if you want to be sure that the wheels will fit just trim the tab.
