: Help with wheels!!

So I'm looking to purchase my first set of wheels
I'm looking at the prf1s I'm looking to get them
179.5+35 all around is this going to work what do I have to do to get them to fit I want the tire to be as close to the fender as possible also what tires should I get 215/40/17 or 235/35/17 or 245
My goal is to have them be sticking out of the fender a little bit

Included some pics from a rsx member of what I want.
Couldn't ask him because his tread was from 2011

You mean Enkei Rpf1s right? Anyways to get the tires flush with the fender, you need a drop and you might need spacers.

Yea enkei I meant +18 not 35 offset do u think this will work, what size spacers thanks

That's a very aggresive setup..

Lots of - camber, skinny tire, etc. Look through the aggresive wheel threads for some more guidance.

just get them in x9, it will save some headaches trying to fit them

Yea that's what I think I have to Come to being looks around all day for the past 2 days n I noticed people having trouble.
Could u be kind enough and tell me what I need
The tire specs and camber Thanks

camber i can't tell u since idk your ride height, just get an alignment after and that will be taken care of

as for tires, on a x9, i would run a 245/40/17

but if u want that stretch life (which i was on), i ran a 225/45/17, it doesn't look too bad but it is stretched, it's up to you in the end what u want, function or form

i ended up getting 245's in the end fyi
