My setup is 17x7.5 +40 with 215/40/17's. No rubbing issues and the tires actually look small to me. So I'm thinking about going to a 45 series tire and getting spacers (3mm) and rolling my fenders. Or I might stay with the 40's and get bigger spacers...Im also on tein s-techs.

To conclude, yes, 215/40/17 is a good size...if you're lowered. If not for with te 45's.

Then I'd say stick with the 40 series unless you wanna lift it back up a bit

Roblaza is right, if you're gonna lower it, go with the 40 series.

hey regardless which wheel u go youll have rubbing, i have 215 40 17 tires pretty low on coilovers. and they rub when i turn and if i hit a big enough bump you will hear them scrap may be better off going 205 thats what i would do next time

I don't plan on lowering too much, I want to take my car to the local mountains and whistler for boarding so I don't want a snowplow.

where is a good place to buy 5mm hubcentric spacers? I wouldn't mind some either, will 5mm spacers require longer wheel studs, or is it safe on stock studs?

I believe you're good on oem lugs. And I can get some from a good friend of mine, but it means going to orillia to have the rims measured and the hubs measured lol

Hey if the wheels are same specs as Flips then I believe he only needed to spacers for the rear and they were 3mm. If you want you can check Flip's thread just to make sure.

I dont think you'll need extended bolts for 5mm spacer. Anything more then probably yes though.

The option of 2 or 4 is entirely up to you... it'll just slightly give a staggered look if you only get a set of 2. But since we are FWD it wont matter/effect the drivetrain.
