Alright, so I have an '07 Si Sedan with a stock suspension (soon to be dropped on Neuspeed Race when I save up some money) and I was wondering what is the widest rims I can get for the front and back. More importantly, I'm wondering what's the widest I can go in the front (along with the offset needed) so that it won't get caught on anything, rub, pull, or any other complication.



Did that make sense ? Sorry, kinda out of it. Thanks guys (and girls, if any).

Just to give you a picture.

I'm dropped on Eibach Prokit (about 1" all round) and have Tokico HTS dampners set to full stiff.

Tires 225/45/17 +38 offset and my rears rub, but not my fronts. Going to eat these tires and then get new ones in 215/45/17, should fit then. Hope that helps.

do you have any camber in the rear? if not, that may help.

Without ANY work, camber/rolling ect. you really can't go very wide.
A 8.5" +40 or so with a 225 is about right.

There you go, this is exactly what I was looking for. Out of curiousity, how much work would be needed to fit 9" wide rims with +35 offset ?


And for everyone else, my bad. I meant tires and rims. Not fat people. Haha. :D

I've got 17x8 / +48 with 225/45R17 and the HFP suspension - no rubbing at all. The +48 was higher than I wanted to go but the wife had to have blue rims!

your gonna rub if you go wide

even if you run a 17x7 +45 (stock) and put a big tire and a drop then your gonna rub
if you want wide and aggressive, your gonna rub, no way around it

i'm really debating on 235's. i'm only on a pro-kit so it's not like i would be tuckin. i've heard of guys pulling it off without the need to roll the fenders. i really don't want to get invested in that.

I think you can go by 9 in width your just going to need a lot of work like rolling your quaters ,stretching your tires and run some negative camber in the rear

I'm on HFP suspension, fa5, and asked the same question. I'm going to end up with 18x8 +35 225/40 next year. No rubs from those that have those

I'll probably just run some 8 or 8.5's then. Anyone know what's the widest I can go on Neuspeeds ? I'm not really concerned about the rear. The front is my main concern because I don't wanna have steering issues.

This question is pointless because it all depends on how low you are.

On stock suspension you can run wide as **** with low offset but you'll look retarded.
