I am trying to get a fairly aggressive stance without having to roll my fenders. I have been thinking of running a 235/45 with these wheels but haven't been able to get a straight answer as to whether or not it would work without modification.

Has anyone ran this same fitment without problems? Or do you think it would be necessary to run 225s?

should be fine, its not that aggressive imo. if your slammed you might need to roll the rear a tad or add some neg camber in the rear a tad if you find your tires rub. 2 finger gap and no roll here. -.7 camber rear too. and thats with soft ass tanabe coilovers. one day my friend and his girl was riding in the back and the rear was dumped(fat asses) and still no rub.

Ok, so going for a 235/45 would maybe be a bit much then? I should go for a 40 then...

Yeah, I'm not slammed, I live in NC and the roads and hills here do not allow it. lol THanks for the info.

I say 235/40
So you agree that a 40 instead of a 45 is a better idea? Thanks for the info.

is 235/45 fits id use that. i personally like fatter sidewalls for a smoother ride. 235/40 is not bad though, looks good.

YOU SHOULD DEF BE FINE IF YOU ARE NOT DROPPED...I just got some nice stock 04 TL wheels (17''X8)...they came with 235/45/17 bridgestone turanaza's (70%tread) but i had a feeling that there would be a problem...so i went with 225/45/17 ....because i am aggressively dropped on tein basic coilovers...that was def a good move because now i am clearing fine but in the back i need some wheel spacers... because on sharp turns, the wheel(s) are slightly slightly nicking against rear control arms on the inner side...

I looked again and it turns out (co-incidentally) the tire shop that mounted by wheels and tires place a weight one the inner side ring of the rear rims (sticks out about 3mm maximum) and this is what is nicking on the rear control arms...

Anyways...just thought i would share my wonderful last couple of days...

...but does anyone know if I should go with the 5mm version 1 ICHIBA's or the 10mm...my worry is that the 5mm will be a lil iffy, but then if i go with the 10mm then my wheels may not clear on the rear fenders (and i do not want to roll my fenders)...any help please???????----thanks

BTW I STILL HAVE THE 235/45/17 (4) (70% tread)... I need $150 +shipping on buuyer (i live in NJ---07470)

right now im runnin 17x8 +47 offset and 215/45/17 tires. the fronts are good but the rear sometimes rubs on the trailing arm or somethin metal goin up hills or large bums. if i went with +36 offset, it should fix the problem correct?

drop it until it rubs, then raise it a little. or drop it to your preference then add camber and roll fenders.
