    it would help if you gave us the stock rim size for the 99' I'm sure that there are a few guys/gals here that have it memorized for every make and model honda but I'll bet 70-90% of us don't .

    but the short answer. offset changes with rims size.
    ie. my stock wheels on my crx which are 13" for which I'm not 100 % sure of the offset but I think it's about +30-35mm
    the rims I have on my car are 15" x 6.5" rims with a +40mm offset.
    and for a set of 17's I'd prolly have to use a +42mm offset.

    its the width, not the diameter that matters.

    going from a 5" wide to a 7" wide requiers a different offset.

    IMO,

    5.5 = +35
    6.0 = +38
    6.5 = +40
    7.0 = +42
    7.5 = you're too wide ricer :)
