I have the 18x9.5 +35 and you definitely need a front spacer.

Just get the 17x9.5 +32. No spacers and just a roll in the rear, pretty much perfect fitment in my mind.

Tires are 255/40/17 and I am lowered on Tanabe springs with MR Bilsteins

OP, did you ever find out conclusively if 17x9 +35 requires a spacer or not? According to RavSpec they do not. According to Emery at STM, the only guy on here running them as far as I know, they do need a front spacer.

You're right to be confused.

Since I am on stock suspension, I think I am going with the 17x8.5 +32 and pinch some 255/40/17's just a lil bit. That should give me the look I am after. I think it would look so silly to have a ton of offset on a stock height Evo.

Mark at RavSpec is a great guy and answers all my questions patiently and nicely. To make the 17x9 +35 work Mark told me that you will need a very small spacer on the front to clear the calipers and that a 3mm spacer should work.

I cannot confirm this of course......

There's a 17x8.5 +32? Damn they make these in a lot of sizes. I thought it was 17x8 +32.

Yes, but I'm sure they just painted them. I had mine powder coated.

I am for sure going with the 17x8.5 +32 and pinch (slightly) a 255/40/17 on the wheels.

Mark from Ravspec answered my questions again and confirmed 17x8.5 +32 will fit fine without any modifications.

He is a great guy to deal with, I cannot stress that enough.

I like the Matte Black!

I wonder if the Black is harder to get? I am sure it is.

17x8.5 +32 sounds like an awesome choice. I was worried they wouldn't be concave compared to the 17x9s but then I found these pics. They look plenty concave to me.

I have searched and searched and I am familiar with those pics. Those and others I found are what made me decide on that. Thanks for agreeing lol.
