17x9 +45 with 5mm spacers all around to clear strut and 245 40 yokohama a drive front and 245 40 Dunlop durreza idk rear lol
Are you lowered at all? Camber?
he's definitely lowered. Maybe a 1 finger gap from tire to fender from looking at his pics. He'll have to chime in
I'd like to know as well. @fb6danny
Eibach Suspension either ProKit or Sportlines springs. Also he has SPC camber kit on the baack.
If hes on either of those springs, I think I can get some fatter tires with 3MM spacers all around (my offset is +42).
His car looks low enough to be on sportlines.
I have -2.1 natural camber in the back, No camber kit.
Hopefully @fb6danny comes thru with the alignment specs!
My investigation is done.
Here's my setup on 20mm spacers 225 45 as well.. Sportline springs too. I had to roll fenders and just to let you know, the sedans body I just a hair wider than the coupes they're could be significant rub without getting fender work done. I'm also at oem specs on my alignment. Might be a good idea to test fit because you might be getting into some trouble considering you have wider tires and your lowered
Thanks for the info man. I really thought I'd be able to atleast fit 235/40 onto my 17x9+45 on H&R's with no fender work.
I guess I have to go with my original idea to go to a used tire shop and fit some 235/40's to see if i have issues. Hopefully a $30-40 tip is sufficient to let me test fit and drive a mile to see if i have issues..and then come back and put my original tires back on because I want NEW tires lol.
I am currently sitting on Eibach ProKit which is slightly higher than H&R. My wheels are 17x9 35mm offset and tires 225/45. I only rub at the front during hard cornering, I can hear the tire hitting that inner fender well.
Looks really good!
I thought there would be more stretch with a 225/45 (seeing as i have 215/45)
Any close ups of the tire on the wheel?
I don't have any other pics
Not my car, but the same specs wheels and tires.
225 on x9 you won't see stretch. 215 and under is where things start to get wild.
Thank you for the pictures and information.
This is why I love this forum!
No problem. If you have any questions then you should contact @Nix . He's an expert on tires and wheels fitment.
Yeah hes a great dude, He helped me when I was looking into dropping my car on 17x9's. Very informative
Thanks dudes! I try and help where I can. I played the fitment game with my wifes cars and had to learn bodywork on the fly! hahaha
I was lowered on eibach sport lines. Sorry for the wait guys
And also had -0.8 all the way around with no spacers but I do recommend them
I may copy cat you a bit lol, I have continental dws so they don't last long, once they wear I'll buy the spacers made by HR that have lugs in them
Unless someone else has a better option, and my next tire size will be beefy like yours.
@Alberto521 - Check the specs on those before you order. That particular set says 4x114.3 you definitely want the 5 lug and 12x1.5 stud thread pitch.
TRAK+ Wheel Spacer DRS Pair 5mm Nissan 240SX All 1989-1994 ALL
TRAK+ Wheel Spacer DRS Type Pair 4x114.3 66.2 12x1.25 5mm
Definitely run extended studs with anything larger than a 3mm spacer. Replacing the studs is not easy.
