I think you could make the 245's work with a spacer.
17x9 with a 215/40 would be a stretch.

Nice!! I agree 215 would be a stretch also. 235s would be better. How do u feel the Si compares to your s2000?

What are you lowered on? 235/40 will be a good option for you. Depending on what exactly you're trying to do. 215/45 or 225/45 if you want to stretch the tires but 215/40 wont be a comfy ride for your little one.

I'm thinking 235 may still rub, the s2k handles amazing compared to the si. I'm def gona get another one in the future. Here is a pic of the s2k

I'm lowered on d2's I just don't want a gap without rubbing the suspension, just lowered not slammed, 215/45 or 225/40 I'm thinking with 5mm spacers in front. Thanks everyone

Just joined the forum, first post.

Picking up a 2007 Si Coupe as a winter car/summer track/autox toy.

Will be ordering a KW V3 coil over kit, Progress rear 24mm bar and need the biggest rubber I can stuff in the fenders. Have been reading through this thread, and there are so many tangents it is hard to find an answer. This is what I am thinking for wheels/tires.

Enkei RPF1 17x9 ET 45
BFG R1 245/40/17
Front H&R 10mm spacers

Anybody running this setup? Looking for a quick answer so I can order everything in one shot and hopefully make the next autox in a couple weeks.

Edit:or should I get 17x8.5 ET 40?

That actually sounds like a pretty good setup to me. I'm sure you could make that fit.

Only thing i'm unsure about right now is the rear. I don't think you'll hit the suspension, but you'll need to roll fenders a little bit for sure.

Will you be adding new rear camber arms for rear and bolts up front as well?

Already have a couple sets of front OE camber bolts, so I can play with that, had them on a previous FG2. Will get adjustable arms for the rear if needed.

Seems like the front springs are pretty long on the V3. Luckily they are a standard size race spring, so can always get springs of the same rate, just a couple inches shorter so the perch sits above the tire and not beside it. This is pretty common to do on the 135's as the front is pretty tight and you need as much rubber up front as possible to reduce understeer.

Also don't mind rolling the fenders a bit.

Hopefully the 17x9 fit with the 245's, will be ordering them from Tirerack already mounted, so no going back.

Had 17x8 +45 with 235/40/17 before, and those bolted on and never rubbed.

I have a si coupe on stock suspension looking to do some autocrossing. Planning on getting a set of RPF1 17x8 wheels, but not sure of the offset and tire size. I want the widest tires without rubbing or doing any body/suspension modifications or spacers.
