you would probably be safe with a low 40's offset, 8.5 rim and 245 or 235 tires. i will be trying out 17x9 with 255/40/17 tires in the sring on my spec r1. i will need to roll the rear fenders though and run some negative camber

on the bugeye you will need to roll the fenders no question if you're going wider than a 235 with an offset lower than 50mm.

with the rolled fenders and some camber you shouldn't have problems squeezing on a 245 or a 255, as long as you've got a quality suspension under there as well.
