    he's definitely lowered. Maybe a 1 finger gap from tire to fender from looking at his pics. He'll have to chime in

    THANKS!:thumbsup:
    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.:shadyhat:
    http://9thcivic.com/forum/threads/25mm-wheel-spacers.12518/#post-326368
    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 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

    (http://www.frsport.com/TRAK--Wheel-...5MQOvZxeqaBG0VWjbnL34FHEAQVHoyLdCUaAsQt8P8HAQ)

    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.
