Sorry to threadjack, but I'm looking at a set of 17x9 they are available in +22 or +38, my car is dropped around 2" would it be better to get +38 and a spacer? If so what size?

+38, you might need spacers (5mm) in the rear, front should be fine,

do you plan on running a 255/40 tire?

Ummm, whats the title of the thread?

Since I'll have to spell it out for you, I was first planning on buying 17x9 wheels but decided against it and bought the Evo 9 Enkies.


Get it?

Want me to get the thread title changed to " I was going to get 17x9 wheels but got 17x8 instead"

So I bought my wheels and they are not 17x9. I just felt I should share with everyone LOL

I ended up going with an awesome deal I got on these

Couldn't pass them up. I'll probably be looking for some Dunlop Star specs in the near future now that I have the wheels.

Just got them back from the powder coater today
Love how they ended up :D

You should weigh one of the wheels to see how much the powdercoating added to them.

I only ask this because I want to get mine powder coated and I'm just curious. I'm still going to get them done either way.

So, I came across this cool item for checking wheel/tire fitment....before guessing and thought others might find it interesting.
