Well, it depends on the tires that you have. Some of the tires are wider compared to other tires in the same width. With that width of rim, I would go with at least a 235/40R17 tire. But I would do some more research before saying for sure.

Just purchased this not too long ago off a another member. (torque r 18x19.5 +35) I plan on running 225/40/18 or 235/40/18 on my tires. Currently i have my fenders rolled, sitting on s-tech springs and stock struts. This will be going on an 04 sti. I have purchased 5mm spacers to clear the brembos already. Can somebody tell me what else i need to do to make these wheels fit? Is it really necessary to run coilovers, camber plates/camber bolts?

per manufacturer recommended specs? yes.

in the real world? no.

hope you've got a place in mind to roll your fenders and the right suspension mods.

go to tire rack, look at any 225/45/17 tire, and check the manufacturer specified wheel width for mounting.

Default Question about Possible Setup

Is it possible to run 19x8.5 with a 42+ offset on a 2010 2.5i?

If so, what kind of mods to the fenders would I be looking at?

P.S. It is sitting on an Sti Suspension.

Default Work Emotion CR Kai Fitment

Hey all, I am looking to pick up some Work Emotion CR Kai gunmetal wheels. Some that I have found are in 17x9 (+44) and I am very interested in picking these up but I am worried about fitment. The only definitive info I have found is I need 10mm spacers in the front but I'm not sure about the rears. Will I have to roll or pull my fenders? Also, can I expect any unusual wear on my wheel bearings or tires with this setup?

My car:
04 STi (5x100)
stock struts with Espelir GT springs (front bump stops cut)
hotchkis swaybars/endlinks
otherwise stock suspension and fenders

Also, if you know of someone selling work emotion CR Kai in gunmetal please let me know! (size doesn't matter to me much as long as fitment doesn't require major mods). Prefer to buy with tires already installed.

Thanks!

hey, im looking into buying some new wheels for my 02 wagon and i want something more aggressive than stock but i cant afford to get into coil overs and camber plates and things of that nature
my car is currently on swift sport springs and the stock struts
my question is, is it completely ridiculous for me to think i can get an agressive look without fender work and coil overs?
the wheels im looking at are the rota g-forces or grids in either 17x8 or 17x9
would those fit my wagon without modification? or if modifications are necessary then how much?
i hope that made sense i just got off work and im pretty tired

For 17x9 +42, I see that most people rock 225/40 or 235/40! Assuming the car these would go on is dropped on h-techs with stock sturts, are 235/45 too meaty as to cause rear/front rubbing??

as far as the 17x8s i used to run the same setup with 225/45/17 with no rubbing at all on tein s techs. you would be fine with the 17x8s but they do look kinda sunk they wont be flush at all. it took 25mm spacers to get flush. i would venture to say that the 17x9s would be fine with 225/45 on them with no rubbing.

Default 17x9.5 +32 tc-105n

I searched but couldnt find much about these wheels... but does anybody know if the 17x9.5 +32 weds sport tc-105n will clear the 05 sti brakes without spacers or anything? im planning on putting some 295/35/17 a6s on them if they do. I obv. know it would rub because its going to stick out to far, But im just going to raise it high enough so that it dosnt rub. You guys think I will be fine with the inboard clearance with that offset and tire size? Im running tic sst spec coils.

Thanks

Update 6-18-2013 Red are new parts I changed the last picture to something current.

2008 Sti no spacer i wont be mounting for another month or two.
RFP1, 17x10 +38,
Dunlop Star Spec Direzza 265/40/17
Rear Fenders rolled
Suspension - BC racing Coilovers + Swift springs
Theres about 1 inch and half fender gap on all four corners.
Almost identical drop the rce springs give you.

F/R 22mm whiteline swaybars.

Plenty of room at the struts 3mm or more at
the closest spot the wheel can touch the brembos.

Theres finger gap over the sti.

The 265 star specs do rub in the rear if i lift the car in any way that it will drop down all the cars weight just on the tips of the sidewalls. Yet i can still get into a auto x type of situation where theres no rubbing making tight turns. Probably needs rear adjustable control arms to avoid fender pulling, im no expert so ask someone else.

I can't think of a specific STI that has had 17x9 +22 TE37's, but plenty of people have had wheels in that same range of width/offset. I am currently running 17x9 +17f/24r on my car with a full sized tire. Just be prepared to do fender work. Aggressive camber will be a must also.

You might also want to check into gramlight wheels my Rays. They make some 17x9's that are offset in the 30's that make it much easier to fit a 245+ tire.
