Im thinking of getting something a little more fun but need help to decide if a 205/40/17 tire is just to small for MB Weapons or Battles 17X9+27?
I only mention the 205s because i can get a set of nankangs for real cheap.

i currently have 225 40 18

18x8.5 31+


im hoping to get my traction

so next size up would be

245 35 18

anyone know if this will be too wide for our car? would it rub?

im lowered about 1.5" all around

so one finger gap between the fender all four corners

I aim to install some 9" wide 17's on my Type-S with Stock ride height up front...+42 offset. I'll let you guys know how far I have to space them out to clear the stock suspension components. Wheel fits without any spacing :thumbsup: but I don't think the tire will :thumbsdow

Just for reference, 17x8 +47 wheels. The driver side rear rubs some plastic piece in the wheel well when you hit bumps, make turns. by yourself not so much, with full car, it's freakin annoying. There's about less than a 1/2" clearance from the wheel and the plastic thingy so that's why it hits the thing and makes the sound...

What size tires? Camber angles? Stock suspension?

Some people just remove that fender liner BTW
