You might need 5mm spacers up front to clear the caliper

i dont know what tires ya getting that are 225/40...that would be a HUGE stretch, anyway

a WIDE 235/40 would be a far better choice but ya killin the gearing with anything smaller than a 245/40

they have the same face as brake clearance is based on the spoke design/hub depth more than offset. the 17x9 +35 required an 8mm spacer, and the 17x9.5 +38 required a 3mm spacer.

You'll need a spacer.

You will probably need to pull your fenders with a tire that big as well.

I already pulled my fenders to fit my last set of wheels, I did the whole stanced thing, I decided to go a different route now. So a 5mm space should do the trick? Beacuse my last set of wheels didnt require a spacer.
