Both of them have 215/45 R17 (all XL apart from the rears of the Rays) tyres fitted and lowered on MiesterR coilovers. Can't comment on how many mm's I've dropped it by because I'm not sure! lol.
Arches rolled? I've just bought same spec wheels just deciding on size tyres

assuming you still run the 8.5 +40 on the front which is the same as mine here with a 245/40

on the rear its a 7.5 et35 with a 215/45.



to make the 7.5 sit the same as the 8.5 +40 you would need to make the offset +28. if your going to fit 22mm spacers you will need more camber

in all honesty 7.5 +42 will be fine but all comes down to personal prefereance. i like aggressive wheel fitment hence im going to be running 9j +40 this year wish me luck
Did you end up getting the 9j‘s on? I was thinking of running 8.5j to have a flush look but I don‘t want to run any spacers. Would you recommend a +40?

With that sort of fitment you'll be needing to run quite a lot of camber on the front. 9J ET40 sits pretty perfectly flush with 3 degrees of camber.

So if I‘m running the 8.5j +40 I‘ll be inset 1/4” or 6.3mm ish. Camber would be less than 3deg correct?

This looks great! Is the car lowered? What sort of camber you running?
Wondered on benefits of 17x8 et48 vs 17x7.5 et45 bar just being wider.
Thanks! Lowered on coils. About 2.8 degrees of camber at front and 1.8 at the rears. 235/40 tyres :)

If you want to be quick around a track, wider tyres/rims is allmost allways better. Otherwise you can go with narrower for lighter steering and better mpg

Yeah, i Have much less camber tbh, so unlikely those specs will fit without arch rolling.

You could run these specs but without spacers at the fronts and with a bit more camber or rolled arches in the back. :)
I don’t want roller arches and I’m confident that I don’t want more camber either tbh, it’s a road car not track car. May have to opt for the 7.5” wheels instead.

OK guys with the recent interest in wheel sizes and several threads and pm's to me asking what will fit with blah blah offset and width, i thought we had better start a reference thread.

I will update the first post with the info you post to form a list,

Please post only a pic of your car that shows the wheel fit and list the wheel size, tyre size, wheel make and model, tyre make and size and if it does or doesnt fit with a simple comment ,it will be heavily moderated to keep it simple and imformative.

for example your post should be-


17x7.5 et45 Rota SDX with 215x45 Toyo R888 - fit fine no rubbing at all :D
*****************
***Picture of car****
*****************

OR.


18x10.5 et10 Volk racing ce28 with 325x40 Toyo T1r- wont fit under rear stick out and rub everywhere. :(

*****************
***Picture of car****
*****************

OK.
The list, I'll start-

17x8 et38 Enkei evo8 with 210x620 dunlop slick- fit ok but require race geo or negative camber
17x8 et38 Enkei evo8 with 215x45 Toyo R888- wont fit on rear without serious negative camber
17x7.5 et45 Rota SDX with 215x45 Toyo R888- close on rear but fit with fast road setup
18x7.5 et45 Kei Racing RSS with 215x40 Toyo T1R- fit fine all round
17x7 ET45 CTR Alloys with RE070 225/45/17 tyres. Clear Brembos and fit no problem without rubs on car lowered 10mm.
18x9.5 +35 what tyre should i use ? and need any modification ..
