If that's what you want, then why even post? Just talk to your friend and duplicate what he did.

If you're running large wheels your fenders need to be pulled anyways if you're doing it correctly.

I had 18x9.5 +35 grids on my car not to long ago. I was lowered on H&R's running near stock camber/caster rolled and pulled. with stretched tires.

was the most horrible ride I have ever had in a car. stretched tires kills your handleing. and being affraid of daily driving the car because of ****ty roads. dodging every manhole cover, pothole, bump. gets really tireing.

I ended up trading my grids straight accross for some 17x8 Enkei Nto3+m and cannot be happier. handling, ride, look. overall way better than the Hella flush look. there is a reason its hella flush LOOK, and not hella flush functional

thats funny, I dont rub at all.

17x9 +30 235/40


Thesese are 17x9 +15r +20f 235/40


I snapped this a couple of weeks ago when I was molesting the hell out of my car for more fitment. pulled + spaced front fenders (obviously) allow me to clear 17x9 +10 in front, and pulled the rear a touch more (still +15). Now running 245 fed 595's (feds run pretty wide). The weather has been rough around here, and I need to wash my car but I'm hoping to get some more current pictures in the next week or so.




I have a more "proper" fitment for HPDE's and lapping days though. 17x9 +42 dpt's with 265's.

your car looked really goood with the grids, i dont like your new rims but if it suits your needs then thats good. im looking for a hellaflush setup thats reliable. maybe you would have liked the ride with your grids if you had a different suspension? were you on h&r springs or coilovers?

i generally only rub during sudden hard bumps in the road, or if i have more than 2 people in the car (which is rare). other than that, no problems!

-3* front -2.75* rear, and no fear of fender modification to keep good camber numbers and decent tire sizes.

the 235/40 yokes had a very slight stretch to them, they had a nice round shoulder. the federals I'm on now sit square with the wheel (maybe a touch of overhang).

thank you, yeah I liked the look of the grids aswell. I think the old man bug has gotten to me early at the age of 24... lol

my body is so tore up from my previous jobs that any rough ride kills my back. with driving to Oregon every other weekend to visit friends/family the new wheels do better suit my needs. they really dont look bad from a full side shot of the car. I just havent had time to take any side pics.

but I do agree the grids were a better looking wheel. these will most likely become a winter setup when I buy some 17x9.5 enkei RPF1 +35's but I will not be running a stretched tire. it will be a 255 atleast.

Sorry to thread jack to the op but if i have a 05 wrx with skunk 2 lowering spring (lowered 1.5 front and 1.3 rear) could i get away with grids 17x9 et42 with a 235/40 tire? or would it be better to get a et30? i want that concave look on the rims and i no i will have to roll the fenders just wondering if it would take more then just rolling.

yea youll be able to pull it off. by concave do you mean a the rear wheels coming out more (offset) or camber?

If its camber you want, you wont be able to get that with springs and if you want the wheels to look wider in the back, get a set of staggered tires.
as for the offset, get the 42 since the 30 wouldnt be coming out of the body as much. im assuming your looking at wheeldude.com

Concave as in the outer edge of the wheel caves in towards the middle. Like how the spokes look. They curve out at the outer edge and then curve back in towards the center around the lug nuts.

And yes I'm looking at wheeldude so far.

Also thanks for the reply!
