Looks like that will work w/out a spacer per the comment in this thread

Drives: JDM EVO VII

I'm narrowing down choices for 17's for my car and because I'm in Canada I'll be ordering online. More than likely they'll be from the US so confirming fitment is crucial as returns are really tough/expensive. This thread the the people that contribute are a huge asset, thank you.

I really don't want to roll/alter the fenders on my 2001 JDM EVO VII so fitment without modifications are crucial.

Great to see the Enkei RPF1 17x8.5 +30 with 235/45/17 will fit without any problems. These are probably my #1 choice.

I've seen mixed reviews on one of my other choices, Rota Grid's in 17x9 +25. Most run a 255 width tire though, I know it's a stretch, but I'm wondering if they'll fit with 235/45/17?

Lastly; I'm looking at Advanti Storm S1's in 17x9. They make a +30 and +35 both strong and lightweight at a good price point. I'd just like to confirm fitment and there's not much info? Again I'd be running 235/45/17 tires.

The EvO7 has the CT9A platform so:

The 17x9 +25 will definitely need a rear roll
The 17x9 +35 would be your best bet, based on your notes above (i.e. no rear roll)
The stock size 235/45 will certainly help eliminating the need to roll the rears
Front fit will be no problem on any of your scenarios except that a front spacer maybe needed on these wheels. No way to tell if a spacer is needed unless you have prior knowledge from others

Would like you to reconsider the rear roll. Its the only way to get a decent width tire in the rear.

You really should consider running a 255/40 tire

All the function guys that monitor the wheel threads will politely advise you to stay away from these low offset wheels

Try & stay within the +25 to +38 range (even +25's w/wide tires (255 & above) is tough to fit correctly

after looking around i found +30 which is what i would want, i only posted about the 12s because i couldnt find any other offset on the site i was on.

so if anyone has any info on those +30 i would appreciate it.

^^^18x9.5 +30 is a size similar to what I run. Lets say you run a 265/35 tire. This recipe will require a rear fender roll combined w/a slight pull.

Also, the bumper bolt will have to be relocated further back. Rear camber setting set at -1.8 degrees max

Please note: Front caliper fitment is unknown

I'm looking around at 18x10 +35 with a 275...I know these will require offset arms in the rear. Will these hit the strut in the front without a spacer? I know it has to be close.

Here are a few threads that discuss this. It is doable

My expertise ends at the 9.5" wheel width & 275 wide tire

hi, i was thinking of advan rg-d in 18x9 +25 with nitto 555 in 265/35. How much work would be needed with stock body? I'm thinking rolled rears and bracket relocation, would the fronts work with stock fenders? Currently on kw variant 1 coilovers.

No way to really fit a +25, especially w/a 265 w/out a bit of rear fender pull. This recipe overlays almost the same as my set-up

If you dont pull, you can expect tire contact w/the rear fender. Any form of rub is not good & potentially dangerous. Some rear camber will be needed but not more than approx -1.8 degrees

Front fit will not be too much of an issue. Expect some liner rub at lock positions. Not sure about spacer usage on this wheel so please confirm that before installing, Advans have been Brembo friendly. I also run their RGII 17x9 +29 that fits OK w/no spacer.

I have mostly decided on the wheels I want.

Wedssport, TC105N

17 inch.

25 offset.

Do you think I will need the quarter panels rolled in at all to prevent the metal from kissing the tire?

Need to know the wheel width (9" or 9.5"). I will run this up on the calculator. For sure, you will need a rear roll & depending on tire size, a slight rear fender pull is possible

Let me know
