You're going to rub with those 225's on stock fenders, you'll probably need to pull the trim strip or roll them slightly.

I was just thinking the same thing with the 225's, you're running almost 9" (8.8") of section width goodness. You might be able to squeek by if you went with the ET 45 instead of the ET 48 SubZero, not much I know, but you'll still have to pull the fender trim strip to make it work and possibly roll the fenders.

There's not a strut clearance problem with that setup as much as a fender problem, a 45 ET would make it worse, pushing the whole assembly 3mm farther out.....

Positive ET pushes the rim toward the fender. Given that the SubZero's are available in 17x7.5 ET 45 and ET 48, I suggested the 45 instead of the 48 so it wouldn't impinge the fender as much. 3mm reduction AWAY from the fender TOWARD the suspension may or may not impinge the suspension. Likely not.

I've run +38 on my BD with 215-45x17 (OEM RE92a) with no inner suspension nor fender issues but, with Dayton Daytonas in that size on the +38 rims, the tires wanted to rub the fenders occasionally. With the section width and tread width of the 225-45 Azenis on 7.5" rims, I'd recommend a test fit/drive first. YMMV

Definitely back you up on the test-fit if they'll do it.

Dale, a 45 ET is closer to the fender than a 48 ET. The higher the offset (ET) the more the rim is pulled in over the center point (towards the suspension).

In your example, your 38 ET is 10mm closer to the fender than an ET48 rim, given the same wheel width.

Sorry, I work at a Suby performance shop and deal with this stuff all day, so I'm a bit pedantic

Thanks Sybir - I was asking several people, whom I know and trust (really look at them as wheel gurus) and I must have misunderstood. I've always understood that the greater the positive offset, the further the rim/tire was pushed towards the fender. I see now that it's just the opposite... but I had to draw a diagram so I could visually see it. See attached.

In reality what's happening is that the wheel hub is moving internal to the rim itself. As the offset decreases, the hub moves closer to the center line of the rim and that forces the outside rim toward the fender and away from the suspension. The disconnect for me was that I could not see the hub/face moving inside the rim as offset increased or decreased. Once I thought of the hub/face sliding inside the rim, it all made sense.

My apologies if I confused anyone.

Exactly, Dale, sorry I didn't explain it more clearly. That graphic is one I'll grab for future use
