Re: Wheel Fitment Thread

Car info: 2000 ex coupe, lowered on ff type 2. Currently at 23", gonna drop lower once I get my tires. Natural camber as well

I just got my wheels couple days ago, 17x9 +12. Will 215/45/17 fit? Reason I ask is because I can get 205/45/17 v12 for 90 each, but I can also get 215/45/17 Yokohama yk580 for the same price. V12 is symmetrical while yk580 is asymmetrical so I wouldn't be able to flip the Yokohama tire.

Main question is, will the 215/45 fit or is it too much of a hassel. If its too much of a hassel, will it be better to go with the 205/45 even if it's the same price, but getting the benefit of being able to flip the tire

Re: Wheel Fitment Thread

I've been looking for some 18's and found a set of 18x8.5 +30. Lowering my car on ff1's. will I have any clearance issues? What size tire would you guys recommend? Not slamming my car, just getting rid of the huge tire gap.

Re: Wheel Fitment Thread

I'm gonna run 18x9 and plan on tucking rim.

Not sure if I want to do 205/40 or 215/35. Suggestions/Opinions?

*215/35 are a little easier to find in good brands* (Nankang/Falken/Federal/etc)

Re: Wheel Fitment Thread

I would go with a 205/40, wish I would have put those on my 8.75 but couldn't find them for a good price. Found some 205/40-18 Achilles ATR Sports for around $60 each or cheaper, I think.

Wheel Fitment Thread

16x8 0 offset on 205/50 and 16x10 +12 offset on 225/50 with the car at around 23"

Camber kits on all 4 corners. Fenders will be worked on. Any other thoughts anyone? Other tire sizes I should consider? Be lower, higher?
