Your going to need atleast a 5-8mm spacer with the 235s maybe more with the 245s
Spaceman said:To those with experience:
If I go with the 17x8 and 46 offset wheels with 245/40/17 tires on the Tokico shocks and Hotchkis springs...
1. What size spacers do you recommend?
2. Will I need to purchase longer wheel studs?
3. Should I expect rubbing of the tires?
hercfe said:you will definitely need a spacer...probably 5 or 6 mm. you will still have rubbing issues if you don't roll your fenders, you may want to consider a 225 width tire..i assure you it will be way more than enough for any traction issues you may think you have. as far as studs, you need to gte them for safety more than anything else..the lug nutz just wont have enuf bite of the stock studs. hozay09 ran these on his car for a while...they looked awesome bronze on red! just remember...spacers=ok for straight line, not so good for any lug stud in a tight turn with the gas pedal pushed in the go direction! no spacer will do the job like the stock hub will(retaining the weight of the wheel off the studs). they sure do look awesome on the car though
