I’m looking at getting XXR 527 17x8.25 35 on my current setup. I have 205 tires on stock wheels on BC Coilovers with no rubbing at all and was wondering if I could go a little bigger on the tires to 225, 235, or even 245 all the way around or if that would cause rubbing issues. Or if I should just stick to 205’s on the new wheels. I rarely have wheelspin on these tires with the current power I’m making and I don’t plan on making much more power.

The widest in range / completely safe width wheel for our stock tires is a 7.5 wheel unless you want to stretch it and be potentially unsafe.

I run our 205 stock tire size on a 7.5 wheel with a +38 offset with coilovers a bit lower than yours. My front rubs on rare occasions on big bumps, but not bad 99% of the time.

With your mentioned setup, the wheels will stick out further than my setup due to the slightly lower offset and wider wheel.

If you go this route, I recommend you do a 225 tire at least and likely plan on rolling the fenders. Hope that helps.

So I found the same wheels as a 7.5. Would I still roll the fenders on 225 tires with that setup?

That helps a bit. If I were to bet you’ll still have to roll with 225s or raise up a bit on the coils. You can also try and search on here for SRT’s with the exact same setup you’re trying to do and see how it went for them.
I know it's a bit late, but I got the wheels and tires on and it fits great. No rubbing or anything. I didn't have to roll the fenders either and the coils were just fine as is. Thanks for your help with this. For anyone running the same OEM wheel setup as me with coilovers, go for the 8.25 wheels. It's worth it!

What's your final tire size?

It’s a great day getting new wheels mounted up!! Especially with some wider meat on them 👍🏻.

I was going to ask about your calipers since I just noticed they are silver or a polished look. Are those the OEM ones that you painted or polished, or aftermarket?

They’re remanufactured Autozone ones. They came silver.
