    Wheel fitment question (possible majob rubbing?)

    Hey folks!

    I currently run the TL 5 Spoke wheels which are 17x8+45, i want to switch to 17x8+35 lightweight wheels, and keep using 225/45/17 tires. I am already lowered running about 1 finger gap front. Would it fit and not rub much without pulling / stretching fenders?

    Thanks!!

    You are just moving the wheel 10mm out further than the TLs. You may have to roll, but that would be it

    Looking at some some 18x8 +32
    Only dropped 1.5"
    Fenders are rolled and front fender lining is partially cut

    Will this fit without any issues?
    Would it look decent with this small of a drop or would it look silly?

    Thanks!

    I did a test run, it seems to rub along the fender liner more than I would like , but mine is a jobber one with horrible fit.. I marked some spots that were troublesome and will check them to make sure its only those parts that rubbed. Will post pictures soon to give an idea!!

    Looks good. A +40 in front would have gotten you off the outer fender lip (that slight poke). I've got the same deal going with my +38 offset. I really like how the rear looks with the 10mm spacer added. :)

    Yeah I wish they were 40 in front, I'll see someday if I can get them machined , for now it will have to do!!

    Ok guys I have a 01' Accord Sedan all stock with 4x114.3 stock wheels and I have never owned an aftermarket set of wheels, so you could say I am a virgin.
    I bought this car with 68,000 miles on it from a old lady who never drove it and there is some body damage cause she wasn't a very good driver and the wheels are in really rough shape. I have been looking for stock replacement wheels and can't find any.
    So my question is what dimension wheels including offset (which I know nothing about) can I put on this car. There are currently 15" wheels on it now. Can I bump up to a 16 or 17" wheel without any issues?
    I am basically looking for something I can buy and put on this car without adding spacers or rolling fenders (whatever that is)

    Thank You guys
