What brand front strut brace?
What, did you sell your car? If you don't mind, how many miles, auto or standard? How much did you get?

Idk what model you have but..

If i remember correctly on an 02-07 a 17x8 with a 235/40/ tire would be your best bet or you can do a 18x-7-7.5 with a 225/40 tire i think!

On an 08+ the biggest wheel ive had on was was an 18x9 245/40/

I know 17x8 e48 225-45 work.. It's Tire Rack guaranteed size.
Not super aggressive, but fill out wheel well sooOO much better than stock. I bet I could get 235 series on there no problem..
18x8, 225-40 guaranteed to work too.
