18x8 +35. That’s what I had no rub and they filled the wheel well pretty decent. I have sk2 springs as well.

What size tires? Looking to get the same specs and I’m lowered on H&R with stocks and it looks pretty close so I was kinda scared to go and wider. 2014 SI sedan.

His comment was referring to using the stock si tires on that size wheel.

Ok. So 225/40. Thanks. I have stock wheels and tires on. Just wanted clarification cuz I don’t want to roll or pull fenders. I don’t mind staying with 7.5 to be safe. Lol

With all that said...

9’s are a better look I think. Little more work and money though.

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!

I have the EXACT same setup except Im running 225/45 and I’m wondering if I should have went with 235/40? I like the extra comfort of a higher side wall I noticed, and I just swapped the new with the old today so it’s fresh and I definitely feel the difference. But I have D2 Rs coils waiting to be installed as well for ONLY a slight drop/daily driving as my 2015 si coupe is my daily so can anyone help a novice with clearance/ rubbing with a 225/45/17 Michelin pilot sport? I’d like to cut the wheel gap as of now in half but I only just put the wheels on today the suspension will have to wait so I’m calling on everyone’s expertise!

safe to run 225 45 17, the stock rim is 7inch-that is all you need, I would stay away from any lowing coil springs.

Hi guys, new to the forum world and this is my first time buying new wheels and tires. I have a 2012 si hfp that came with ugly winter beaters instead of the stock wheels. The springs in the hfp are only a 15mm drop, I'm looking at 17x8 or 8.5+35/38 and 225/40. Really don't wanna rub or modify my fenders but also don't want a huge gap. Anyone have suggestions or pics of a similar setup?

Hi guys new to the forum just got myself some tein stech lowering springs specs are: (Ride Height (mm,inch) - Front: -30/-1.2, Rear: -33/-1.3). As well as i just purchased some Enkei RPF1 17x9 +45 wrapped in 255/40r17 with 5mm spacer so a meaty set up. Was seeing if anyone had similar specs and rubbing, knowing that its a beefy setup please inform?i saw the first post with black sedan but not sure if he is lowered on same spec or not
