so im getting new wheels soon and i need some advice.

i wanna go 17x9 or 8.5 not sure yet. now, i have kyb gr2 struts and dosnt seem like i have that much room on the inside. right now i have stock 5 spoke goldies 16xwhatever i dont know and im running 205/55s.

if i want to go like 17x9 or 17x8.5 and say run 225 or 235 wide tire by like 45 side wall?

what do you guys think. any advice will help. the bottom part where the kybs sit with the spring is kinda big. do most peopple run coilovers with a wheel this wide?
or will i be okay?

^ you dont need coilovers but when you have wheel like kinda of a lot of wheel gap and wide wheels it looks weird. my personal preference though.

How are you's getting these big wheels to fit? I have a set of 18X7.5 ET53 Prodrives with 235/40/18's on them and they hit my Ver.5 Sti struts? So what's the trick/ Just getting coilovers?
