235/40/17's with Eibach Sportlines?

Just wondering if I can get some feedback from anyone who has ran 235/40/17 tires on their Si with eibach sportline springs......

Ive done some searching and I read that someone running a 235/40/17 tire with a 17x9 +35 wheel had little to no rubbing issues, I just want to make sure I won't experience a lot of rubbing if i run this size tire on my new wheels.

Wheels they are going on are 17x9 +38, and tires im looking at are the Yokohama S Drives.

Like I said I've done some research and think I will be ok, just seeing if I can get some more feedback from you guys before I buy my tires.

Oh and just in case it matters, they are going on my FA5.

Thanks in advance for any help!

not sure how much help it'll be, but I'm on Pro-kit, 235/40/17, 17x8 +40, only rubbing I had was 1 clip on each side up front. It only rubbed on big dips. Once I bent the tabs in, it hasn't rubbed since. No camber kits

Alright cool thanks for the help. I should be good then since the sportlines only drop 1.4 front and 1.4 rear. (seems more than that tho lol)

old setup: 17x9 +35 with 235/40 dunlop direzzas (non-star specs) on Eibach Sportlines, no fender work, no -camber

rubbed on larger bumps in the rear, cleared lock to lock in front

imo one of the most functional setups to be had

hey shibainu do u think that same tire size would work on skunk2 lowering springs setup. I really like that 235/40 for my car. About to get my wheels this week but im still debating what size tire to get.

The non-star spec direzzas are on average a full inch narrower than the comparable size in the star specs.

Yeah I love 235/40 and actually I ran this setup with Skunk2 Pro-bounces and they were fine -- just the occasional rubbing in the rear.

I ran 225/ 45 v12's on sportlines with no rubbing at all, with the shorter sidewall you should be fine.

i wanted to run 235/40 but couldnt find the right brand for the right price, running 225/45 prior and having rubbing issues (neuspeed race springs)
i opted for 215/45 in federal 595 evos which are still quite beefy with alot of meat on them.
just run 225/45/17 and be 100% safe
but keep in mind every brands size runs differently, so a hankook 225 will be wider then a michelin etc
