I know its not exactly what you were looking for but here goes

Kumho ecsta 215/45-17 on 17x9.5 Motegi Touge all around

EDIT: I didnt roll fenders, but the inner edge was pounded flat. Also third pic is at full lock with stock ps rack. Only steering/suspension mod at the time was my pbm coilovers at neg four mark(normaly ran at neg three w/o issue).

I have 235/40R18 in the rear with 1" spacers in the back. Fits just fine with or without the spacers. They're +25 offset wheels. I could go much wider in the rear. The front on the other hand is really close at 225/40R18. Same offset wheel, 5/8" spacer. I rolled the fenders and it's super close, although I think 235 would fit with enough massaging of the fender.

Those of you running a 235 in the front, how close are you to the coil springs? A 215 on my current setup is close. I dunno if I would want to try a 225 in the front. I run a 235 in the rear with no spacers on OZ Superlaggera.

You probably need a wheel with less offset then. What are the specs on your OZs?

17x8 and 9. +35. 235/40F and 245/40R KDW2's. No roll, no rub, no worries. I bought 'em from Rishie at AutoRnD.

Wow! I had 8.5 in the front and they did not sit as perfect as yours. Are you running a spacer in the front? It looks great. I don't have the RPFs anymore though....

No spacers, I just slapped 'em on. They came off of Rishie's GTU-S.

And thanks! I miss that car.


EDIT: Found an old pic of the GTUs in Rishie's shop.

Nice. Mine came on the car and even though I think they are great, they are just not my taste so I took them off. I never knew the offset they were, but they didn't sit as nice as yours.

i know she is crusty but here is a good front shot on 235/40/17 on the xxr 527 17x9.75 +25 offset with a 15mm bolt on spacer and -1 of camber car is also 4 lug which i really think makes a difference in offset. because my sport model although 5 lug sits different with a +25 up front. rear tires are xxr 17x9.75 +25 with a 50mm bolt on spacer with 255/40/17 close to -2 degrees camber fenders rolled and pulled front and rear
