Default 2017 Wheel Fitment

Hey Folks,
Working on a long list of improvements for my 2017, one is tire fitment, I am running coilovers so there is some room there, but with 10" long coil spring in front, not as much as a typical coilover.

Under consideration was a 275/40/17 on a 17 x 9 +45/55/60 target offset, however based on the 1/2" or so coil to tire clearance with 255's on 17 x 8 +35's, ( my winter set) I am beginning to doubt this would fit.

Does anybody have a good idea of max tire and wheel with and without fender rolling ( We do have a fender roller if needed )

This is a very handy tool. Use your trim's OEM wheel and tire size for setup 1 and put in the setup you're looking at into setup 2. It'll tell you about clearances, etc. based on the assumption that setup 1 fits perfectly.

Thanks for the replies. I found the rimntires very good. My primary interest is fitting the most tire with an offset that does not negatively affect the handling and steering, while still having good clearance. Also I don't intend to have a stretched tire, so a 255 on 8.5 Width rim or maybe a 265 on a 9.0 width. I have plans for a couple of track days in 2020

Why do you want the "most tire". Just because track day? You may want to look up what the rules and regs for the track day that you're planning on doing.. Wait... 2020??
