Are you running stock suspension or a beefier coilover?
If it's the latter you MIGHT need spacers, test fit it and you will know.

It shouldn't rub unless you have coilovers.

buttt.. if you insist that it's rubbing, just try putting some washers on your studs just to measure how thick of a spacer you'll need... do NOT use them as spacers though.. haha

Well if you think about it, read all the 17x8 +35 FN's threads. Tons of threads on it...along with tons on info.

Most people run a 215/45 on a 17x8 +35 with FN's becuase anything wider will hit. So that given, with 225/45 you will probably hit. So if I were you I would use a 8mm.

But if your all about flushiness then this would be near perfect. 17x8 +35 with a 235/45/17 with 10mm spacer up front and a 15mm in the rear. This would give you room on the inside for the strut, no stretch on the tire, and really flush with only a roll...no pull needed...providing you dont have wheel tuck.

17x9 + 25 will barely clear coilovers.

1inch = 25.4 mm ~ 25 mm

So you do the math.

Front





strut clearance its really close (front strut)






flushness of front rim without spacer.



clearance for the rear should be fine.





i will probably need spacers in the front but do you think i will need extended lugs?

You can get away with 5mm spacers on the stock lugs, but, anything bigger, and you will have to get extended lugs. I really think you will be fine. I had 17x9 +35 and I used 5mm spacers. You have more clearance. The celarance you have, is 5mm more than I had with my spacers.

If its flush with the fender that far away from the wheel, its not gonna be anywhere near there when its low. I believe those gr2 are slightly slotted on the spindle part so you might be able to get more clearance if you take more camber out. I think a 5mm should do it.

did you ever get these wheels on your car with the right fitment? I was planning to get these wheels with the same specs. Please post pictures if you have them on.
