I'm looking to pick up some tein coilovers and Rota's 17x8 35+ and would like to fit some 215's or something a bit meatier.

meatier as in profile wise or width wise? Don't think you can go any wider without hitting your stock fender, and profile wise I wouldn't suggest higher than a 40 series, you're getting coilovers because you want to go lower right? By having a meatier 45 series tire you'll run into a whole lot of rubbing issues

I want to get coilovers for adjustability and I would believe that I could clear a 225 tire. I am getting the car repainted so I can pull the fenders as well if need be. I want to be low but not tucking tire

So what exact size are you looking for?

225/45/17: Way oversized throwing off your speedometer. There will be LOTS of rubbing with this size. The rubbing would most likely rub the fender liner inside. And what coilovers will you run? Will the camber be adjustable?

225/40/17: Last time I checked this size only existed with Nitto Neogens, but I don't see it on their website anymore

Is there a reason you're wanting to run such a thick tire? I still suggest staying within 2% of the stock tire size

The coilovers are tein basics. What about a 215/40-17? I'm certain on the wheel size.

^ CJ I've always said that 215/40/17 is the magic tire size for us. Close to speedometer reading and good fitment option

It makes panties drop or become non-exsistant, so say better handling can also be had..

Only will really happen when you run an "aggressive" tire, not wheel. I lol at people running wider wheels that run tires that will fit on the stock size wheel. FAIL

No disrespect but this is obviously not the "aggressive tires" thread, I understand some people use their car to track, some people use their car to show off and be unique/look good as a daily street car. You're right it doesn't make it handle better, like I said it all depends what they are aiming for. Please just leave useless comments out of here, I just created this thread to share info/opinions based on experience.

sorry late reply I went on vacation. Your 8.5 definitely won't work, you'll need a lot of work to fit that, and I'd imagine you would also be sitting very close to the suspension with that. I'd pass on that setup unless you want your wheels further out and get body work done
