Whats the Widest Tire i can run on my Setup?

Type R Suspension, 17x9.5 with a +28 currently running 225/45/17

Here is a pic

I rub a little bit in the front. Is it possible to fit a 255/265/40/17?
Oh btw i will be running Chargespeed Fenders which are +20.

Here are some so u get an idea what ive got to work with

you would be fine with some 255/40s in the front and some 245/40s in the rear... If you wanna run 255/40s in the rear too, you will have to raise your rear up 1" and have to roll your rear fender....

I bet you could run some 265/40s too in the front...

What kind of wheels do you got? Looks good..

oh lord, if you run 255's you will definitely have to raise the car up.
im running 245/40 on my +22 x9 in the front and i still rub. i probably have an inch left from the tire to the fender too. im sure if i rolled/pulled the front it would solve that issue


btw very clean car!

For gods sake put some real wheels and tires on your car. This "Hella Flush" shit is hella gay. This is one of those dark times in the import world and you need to let it die.

hmmm.....maybe this is why i asked for fatter tires...my car is more setup for DD and it has power. The hella flush look is killing my traction when i run so im doing the research neccesary to make my car more consistant on my runs.

So please take your valued opinion and posse of followers and post your comment on the OFFICIAL HELLA FLUSH THREAD

I have the Type R Hubs, LCA, Sway Bar, Axles and Rear Hubs. They give the car an addition +15mm offset. So my wheels are +28, with the type r hubs im now at +13 offset

no way you will fit 265 without rubbing constantly, i have 17x9 with 255s and it rubs a little, i'm not quite as low as you either. fenders are rolled and slightly pulled.

edit: didnt see tht you are running wider fenders. 265 will probably fit.

Christ that looks awful... Raise it and put some real tires on it and fix your rear camber.

This is how it stands now

225/45/17

on 9.5 with a +28 Offset

I think i wanna get an extra set of wheels in a 17x9 + 35 size.

Then ill stick some 245/35/17's on there. I always tought a 35 series would look way to thin, but after see a lot of wheel tire setups as long as you get a tire that fits the wheel a 35 series will look wonderful!

Your wheels don't fit what so ever. Get some different ones and then we can start the process of fixing your car.

im running 255 40's on my front with stock fenders and it doesnt rub too bad and im tucking tire and my fenders arent rolled so im sure you will be fine with 255's or 265's, but my wheels are only 17x9 +35 so if they dont fit nothing a little camber, roll and pull wont fix.
