Ridiculous how?
The thing is that 17"s have only 8.25 & 9.75 in width, and 8.25 doesn't look flush enough for my taste.

Will Coil Overs resolve this? And if so, what would you recommend?

Thanks

They'll be really wide and poke like crazy. Best fix would be coilovers, tons of camber and small tires to run that size

I really appreciate the help. Much thanks!

Going for the 17x9.75 225/40 +25 anyways, but also expecting to get coil overs and camber bolts mounted.

Again, mad props for the help.

No problem buddy! Just make sure to do everything right the first time and RESEARCH RESEARCH RESEARCH before you start putting the whole setup together. Otherwise you'll end up

And helping is just what I try to do around this thread. If you need any more help or anything, refer to this thread as we've pretty much covered it all over the years in here haha.

Les schwab has hub rings. Thats where i got mine for my 530's. But they aren't going to push it out at all. They are only used to keep the wheel centered on the hub. You will still need to run spacers. Also, you might want to make sure to run the same spacer in the rear to match too.

yeah no matter what I'm running spacers front to back I'm just putting on a generic spacer for now until I can get my hands on hubcentric spacers or have some made

Already completely rolled and I know I'm gonna have to put some camber on it. I don't plan on going that low, I just don't want stretched tires.
