ey vince, how do you think 17x9 +30's would fit all around? Judging by your setup i'm gonna guess it's a no go on stock fenders. but BUT what if i put on some fender flares?!?!? I really want to find some that fit my car or make some fit.

17x9 +30 would looks really good with some fender flares. im not sure +30 is low enough to fill the flares. you might even have to go down to +25 or so.

but a +38 will fit if you pulled the rear fenders.

if i didnt have WRX control arms in the front 17x9.5 +35 would fit, ive tried

never been much of a fan for the stretched tire look.

but be careful of ur bearings. 5x100 bearings arent as robust as the 5x114

IF
this thread turns into a stretched tire thread I vote to have it closed.

on that note keep with the wide wheels AND tires coming!

im only running 17x8's with 225's

vinceGC8, very nice. I like it

lowride: also nice. I like stretched. My s13 silvia is stretched to fit on 8.5's.

Do either of you have issues with the tires rubbing on the strut?

tires not rubbing on the strut, any wider tire i would be. then a spacer and widebody or flares would be in order.


witch im highly considering.
