It will be sunk in, yes, but it won't rub anywhere. Will fit just fine

I have this, on the front. On the rear I have 225/45's but I managed to rub the rear trailing arm with the rim. So when I was doing rear brakes one time I did a mini version of Spaz's dimple bash (you should see that trailing arm... dunno why it bulges out like that, right where it will rub).

Very surprising....8 +45 should not be rubbing at all...unless maybe you are running positive camber

Actually positive camber would make it rub LESS on the trailing arm lol.

It has been a while since I've seen the RSX suspension, but isn't the trailing arm below the center of the hub? If that's the case, then positive camber would make it rub more
If the trailing arm is above the center of the hub, then I stand corrected

yes but positive/negative camber happens when the top of the wheel moves in and out, the bottom for the most part doesn't move if it did would be fucked haha.

It depends on the size of the wheel,the width and the offset. Going with a narrower tire might not fix your problem.

The stock wheel is a 6.5in width with a 45offset. You need to measure .75in from the inside of the stock wheel towards the trailing arm to see what happens. Considering offset is the same wed just split the difference. If the offset was different would be a dif idea.

Personally if i went wider id try a 42-40.

I'm not sure I follow. If the top of the wheel is moving in, the bottom of the wheel would therefore move out. And vice versa.
9 +35 is the most commonly used size on the RSX, and people run these all the time with no issues.
8 +45 is equal to a 9 +32 in regards to inner clearance. Therefore, it should have no issues at all. If it did, either the offset/size is not what you think it is, or your alignment is off

Because the bottom doesnt move like the top does. Front and rear knuckles pivot so the top f/r to adjust camber move far more then the rear would. Top moves horizontally bottom of the wheel/tire pivots it doesnt in fact move.

Difference between a 45 offset and 35offset is 10mm so it is almost half an in makes quite a difference. If someone has the same size wheel and offset and rubs ill take his word for it as it rubs.

Try this should help a bite.

***List of Wheel Sizes, Offsets, and Tire Sizes for RSX.

The wheel is 1 piece. There is no hinge or flex point in the middle. If the top is moving, so is the bottom. If the bottom of the wheel did not move, tires would not have camber wear.

I don't think you understand, the difference between a 8 +45 and a 9 +32 is the outside clearance. The inside clearance is the same. 6.5 +45, 8 +45, and 9+45 cannot be compared


The link you posted is the same tool I use, it will show you that 8 +45 and 9 +32 have the same inner clearance

Yea i just checked that i was thinking of something else. This site is even better includes tire width as well. Me personally going for a wider rim i would not keep the same offset.

And yes you are right that the offset means outside clearance BUT you also have a wider wheel. Try it on this site the factory wheel setup and the one he wants. The wheel will in fact be 19mm closer to the strut then before. This includes the trailing arm as well.

Ok I have some new pieces to the puzzle of why I rubbed:
First off, let me say I thought the reason was because I had stock unadjustable rear upper arms, which put my rear camber at a freaking -2 to -2.2 degrees (with like nothing in the front), but considering your arguments, that information would've hurt my case.
Well, I just installed some SPC camber arms (finally) and got an alignment and the tech invited me back while he adjusted it and he told me my rear knuckle bushing is torn, as he was able to wiggle the wheel, so that would explain how I rubbed. It was a slalom turn, hard right, then hard left when I heard it rub on the the rear right, and had scrapes on the trailing arm to prove it.

Anyways, I think next time I would get 235/45's cuz the 45 profile cushy-ness would be nicer with the stiffness of the A-spec. My fronts are RE-11's so maybe that's why it feels like every bridge seam and road buckling is a small speed bump.

Also, I wouldn't get x9's unless you plan to run 255's and/or you love the concave look. Otherwise, 8's are the way to go I say. I think +40 offset would look better as well but perform better I wouldn't know.

Ah that makes sense torn bushing would make it rub probably destroyed your tires too. Well now we know that x8 and 45 shouldnt rub haha.

Update: My friend and I went for a drive during lunch and I was still rubbing (a lot) during a hairpin on-ramp turn. I looked thru my rim spokes and see I've scraped my trailing arms on both sides, so it's not the knuckle bushing at fault (unless they are both torn). I have -1.1d camber on it right now, so it needs somewhere closer to -2 to not rub. So I am thinking I'm gonna get some 5mm spacers at least for the back. The front looks pretty flush because of the 245's but the 225's in the rear look sunken in a lil. Again why I'd say perhaps +40 is the way to go for x8's!

More camber might not solve your issue id start with 5mm spacers.

You can always bang in your trailer arm a bit like Spaz did. I am running 255's on a x9 wheel with -2.5 camber and im only rubber my fender cuz I am a bit to low and will be lifting it up soon.

I'm on DC5R suspension (about a 3/4" drop).
Saw a set of wheels that I think would be good for the track.
What do you guys think of running:

17x9 +30 offset with 255/40/17

I'm guessing I'll need to roll the rear fenders? Is this too much for track and should I stick with 17x8 instead?

Are you on DC5R hubs and knuckles and whatnot as well? Because I believe that would put you at +15 total offset, which is a little too low probably. Assuming your offset is indeed +30, you'll probably need to roll the rears, the fronts with your drop should be okay. I rolled my fronts (even though there's not much to roll in the first place), and trimmed my fender liners just in case, and I'm a little lower than you are. I think I could've gotten away without rolling/trimming though.

I should clarify. I'm only using DC5R springs and struts. No hubs, knuckles etc...
I wouldn't want to drop the car more than 1" but def. would like something stiffer if possible.

So you ran, 17x9 with 255 tires just fine in the front? That's crazy. Didn't know you could run that wide of a wheel on the RSX without major issues. Did you have to run a lot of camber in the back as well?

Are you on DC5R hubs and knuckles and whatnot as well? Because I believe that would put you at +15 total offset, which is a little too low probably. Assuming your offset is indeed +30, you'll probably need to roll the rears, the fronts with your drop should be okay. I rolled my fronts (even though there's not much to roll in the first place), and trimmed my fender liners just in case, and I'm a little lower than you are. I think I could've gotten away without rolling/trimming though.

I wouldn't want to drop the car more than 1" but def. would like something stiffer if possible.

So you ran, 17x9 with 255 tires just fine in the front? That's crazy. Didn't know you could run that wide of a wheel on the RSX without major issues. Did you have to run a lot of camber in the back as well?
Yeah I'm on 17x9 +35 with a 255/40 right now. -2 degrees front camber and -1 rear. All four corners are rolled, and I'm pretty low (half finger gap up front, 1 finger gap in the back). I assume you'll probably need to roll the rears, on my specific setup I could've gotten away without touching the fronts, you can probably too depending on camber. But I rolled the fronts just to be safe lol.

We talking drag track or actual track track? For track track a wider tire is pointless especially if u dont have the power to push it. A 255 and a wider wheel adds unsprung weight. Thats the weight u actually want lower.

They would be for auto-x and track days. Going to my first track day in a week and have booked some lessons. Stoked. Don't think I'd be interested in hitting the drag strip.
I def. don't have the power. Currently: CAI, q300, Obx v2 RH purchased, Kpro reflash shortly after. Probs RBC and I'm done.
Would 17x8 and 235/40/17 be best for track? Again, not worried about how it looks too much.

Well, I would agree with that reducing unsprung weight is always a good thing. And that wider isn't necessarily always better. But going from a 18x7.5 on a 225/40 to a 17x9 255/40 I still knocked off 4 pounds a corner, my old wheels were heavy lol. I will agree with the power comment, I'm only making 200whp so a lot of people give me an odd look with they find out my tire size. But running a 255 R comp compared to my smaller all seasons is night and day, it's grip for days. Do I need to run a 255? No, I don't, but I do it because I can lol. I'm not a professional racer by any means, so take that for what it's worth.
