anybody tried running 245/35? I currently have 18x8.5 +30 wheels and I am looking at three tire options. 215/40, 225/40, 245/35. 215 and 245 have smaller sidewalls which help me better with not rubbing but one protects my wheel better than the other. 225 protects the lip a little but it has a bigger sidewall
I'd stick with 225/40 but with that offset you will probably need to roll/pull fenders to avoid rubbing.
I recently just got some parts and planning to put them all in the summer. Need some advice! I got 17x8 +45 rpf1 and yokohama s drives 235/40/17. Also got buddy club racing spec coils. It's my daily and I just want a functional set up that I can do some mild aggressive street driving (maybe autocross and track in the future ). What do you guys recommend as far and drop and camber to achieve this goal? Thanks!
That will be a very functional setup. You can easily lower the car 1.5-2" without any added camber and be fine.
Sweet! Kinda makes me want to put them on sooner!
I believe you need spacers up front to clear a +45 on the Si's. Someone correct me if I'm wrong
Probably not. He's just running a 17x8. If it was a 9j, then I wouldn't run a 45et. It's also depends on his alignment setting.
@FreeSamples if I were you, I would just bypass the 17x8 and go 17x9 +35. You'll have to roll a bit in the front, but if you're serious about tracking the car, you'll have to buy wheels and tires all over again.
I would do it for fun but not that serious about it. I would've gotten wider wheels but I wanted bronze rpf1's and they only make em in that size or smaller on tire rack. I saw 18's on this other website but it got expensive real quick but I didn't want those anyway.
Thanks for the feedback guys.
Thanks for the input Gabe, didn't know that lol
Many thanks for the suggestions Webby and dPetro. Purchased 17 inch alloys, tires and got them installed yesterday. Looks and feels good. No more floaty feel. Few pics.

Wow this definitely makes me want to get some RPF1's even more! It looks great!
what's your suspension setup?
I wanted to ask did you roll the fenders and what camber you are running all around? I'm on a 2" drop and looking at 17x9 +45. Interested to know how much if any fender work will be involved.

What suspension set up are you running?
