Good luck fitting those. Would take a lot more than "a roll at least" to make it work.

Figured I would ask since you guys know wtf you are talking about, Ive currently got 235/40s wrapped on 18x9.5 +38 rims. Ive got coilovers, 5mm spacers up front and I did a slight roll on the back, they fit great but the tires are a bit stretched, what do you guys suggest would be the widest tire I could fit on there. Id rather not pull the fender but wouldnt be against rolling it more. I basicly want the rim and tire to be even and not stretched.

I feel like 245/40 wouldn't be a problem with what you are saying. How are all your clearances atm?

With out the slight fender roll I was scraping the very edge of the tire whenever I would hit a bump. Now after it, I can fit 4 nator heads in the car and only slighty scrape the fender on a large dip/bump, otherwise zero issues. Ive got about 1"1/2 gap between the fender and wheel. And my kw's are super skinny so they still have over an inch of room between wheel and strut when turned all the way.

Ok. Because with 245/40 you would gain like .30" of diameter or something like that, as well as loose the stretch. So fender clearance was my main concern. Feel like you would definitely want a flat roll. Are you against running more camber if need be? Not sure what you are at right now but that's another way to go about it.

Also section widths can vary from brand to brand. When you are dealing with fitment like this that's something to keep in mind.

Im not against it per say but do not want the crazy negative numbers that alot of the extreme guys run. Some slight tucking in I can live with. Im not 100% on what they are at now I have to look up my receipt from when I last had it alighned. By "flat roll" what do you mean? Like roll the fenders even more or in a specific manner?

do you have the bumper tab ground down? a lot of guys think they are rubbing fender when in fact its the bumper tab. you also may want to slightly pull your fenders before your tires do it for you.

Yep. No problem.

That's my opinion on it. See what @dastpe think about it.

08 MS3 on Eibach PK - I want to get some new rims and i want them to be almost flush with fenders, just a touch inside ~2-3mm or so. I would greatly appreciate any input you guys can give me in order to make this happen. I am currently running 215/45s on my stockers and would like to run a 18x8/8.5 wheel with wider tires. Can anyone help me figure out exactly what size wheels/tires i would need to achieve my goal? I was looking at the XXR line and i like the 527s but +35 is out of the question for the simple fact that i dont want the wheels poking out past the fenders.

Thanks in advance for any input on my dilemma

Thank you for the response! So around 40 - 42 would be ok? I see several rims that i like with +35 offset but i am afraid of them being bull-frogged.

i would pull now personally, but just slightly. you can tell if you actually NEED a pull by looking to see if there is any paint on your tires and checking for burn marks on the inside of the fender. if either of those is there, get yourself a little pull. make sure to do it right and pull the whole quarter, dont just heat the fender and get that gay looking 3" flare of the fender.

Was OMW home from class today and one of my stock tires totally exploded at about 25k miles on them. The rest are pretty much bald so i was going to go a head and by new Wheels and tires, From what I've read 18x8.5 44 offset on stock suspension should be fine, but i could use some advice on which tires work well for DD and if i should go 225 or 235. Was looking at these guys

235/40. tirerack reviews for our cars are your best bet. tires depends way too much on personal preference and goals for the car and price range.

Got a question boys. I drive a 2012 Genpu and I'm looking for a winter set up. I've done my research on the forums and I've decided to go with 205/60R16. I know the biggest issue with 16s is clearing the calipers. I have found 16"x6.5" rims and my question is... how much of an impact will the offset have in terms fit? I can get an offset of 40 mm or 45 mm. The guy in this thread R32 GTS-T Wheels, winter test fit! managed to fit his 16s that had an offset of 40. Would 45 be better in terms of clearing the calipers? Or does offset really only impact how flush the tire is with the body of the car.

Glad you didn't do it because they would poke out like crazy. I just got some CR Kai's from a buddy that were on his old evo. Tried the 17x9 +28 wrapped in 255/40/17 start specs lowered on h&r springs with rears rolled . I also have +17 rims too, which I can't imagine how much more poke there will be...Going to figure if I should keep these things.

My friend has a set of nt03s for cheap. They are 17x8 +38. I'd planned on going 17x9 and sticking with stock suspension like I've seen on Goodwin racing. I'm on stock suspension and plan to stay that way. Will it look like a monster truck on my gen 1? Not sure about the tires he has with them yet. Thanks for the reply.

225/45 would give the best fitment.
235/45 would give you closest to stock diameter.

You'll want to roll fenders either way though.

I have a set of 16x7.5" 40mm offset rims for my winter setup. They fit great and I got them cheap on craigslist.

Regarding offset, on the same width rim, lower offset will push the rim farther away from the caliper. You can plug some values into this calculator to see where the rim will sit.

That being said, if I had to do it all again I would get 215/50-17 or 225/50-17. We dont usually have a ton of snow up here so the extra width and less sidewall will be a better all around winter setup than the 16" and 205s.

Default 17" wheels & stock suspension: maximum width tire?

I'm looking for track wheels & tires and am considering 17x8.5 wheels, with 245/45x17 NT-01s.
  1. How much of a roll would I need for this?
  2. I'm thinking spacers will be required up front: is 3mm enough?
  3. Can I go wider (255/40x17?) without a pull?

This is for a 2007 Gen 1.

Edit: realised this question is useless without a wheel offset! Doh! I'll come back with one soon....

Thx

Just got my Speed3 genwon and wondering if this setup would work on stock suspension without a roll.
Motegi Sp-10 18x8 +40 wrapped in KDW 2's 235/40-18.

Thanks for the help.

Trying again....this time with a wheel offset!

So....will a 17x8 ET 45 (Konig Lace) with 245/40R-17 (Kumho Ecsta XS) work with stock suspension?

Will I need a roll & if so how aggressive?

Thx

If you put konig laces on your car I will find you and murder you. I'm fucking serious, they are ugly ugly wheel on anything.

that size will fit but you'll definitely need at least a roll. And don't do laces.
