17x8.5 +38 w/ 245/45 tires?
I have read the tech thread a few times now. I do not mean to piss anyone off by posting ANOTHER thread asking pretty much the same thing that everyone that posts on here asks. But I haven't found much information about the 8.5" +38 wheels. Let alone what tires would actually fit.
I see that with a 8.5" wide wheel with a +38 offset should fit with coilovers. I have ST coilovers on my car at the moment.
What im questioning though is tire fitment. Im wanting to get a set of 245/45R17 to wrap a set of 17x8.5" +38 wheels. Would I be better off going with a 17x8.5" +30 wheel??
But im not sure if that tire size is to meaty. I currently do not have my fenders roller. im most likely going to do this anyways sometime soon. I had a mishap with my MT drag radials and they caught my passenger fender while hitting a bump while turning. No major damage, but I want to roll the fenders so this wont happen again.
Everyone on this forum has helped me through bringing my car from stock, to what it is now (mods in sig) But Im not extremely versed in wheels/tire fitment as of yet. Mostly because they are both pricey mods. So I would like to do it right the first time if possible.
As always, thank you very much for any input
