the 17 inch rim with +38 offset and 215-55-r17 xice tire looks off from rear wheel.
Is this normal for this tire? What made it look like that.

I have almost the same tire size but with 48mm offset. That's only about 1/2 inch. I think it's more optical than anything else. The black rim makes it "shrink". I stood my tires side by side before putting the snows on. They were almost exactly the same height - but I have a silver rim. I was beating myself up because I thought I should have picked a darker rim, but now...

Can you share photo of your winter set up?

It’s sitting perfectly now. It’s just the elevation of the ground that make the rear wheel so close to fender. That rim will look best at 19”+ and low profile tire.
At first i wished i got 18” but the glossy black made it look good. It is the same rim style as civic type r without the red color made by enkei btw.
