With the amount of drop you'll be running, the 205/40-17 size IMO will look to short. Also, almost all the tire models in this size do not have the proper load rating for the vehicle.

got it. so 205/40/17 is not a good idea. its just because i have some spares in that size just lying around here. i was going through some tires for the size 205/45/17 and i found some hankooks which i heard were very great tires. thanks for all the help.

I have bought a set of Civic Type-R FN2 rims for my Prelude.


I know that the 225/35/18 tyres are the best option, but I would like to go for the 225/40/18 tyres. My Lude is not lowered and the rim specifications are
ET 55 7,5JJ.

Would this fit without rubbing?

A 7.5" wide wheel with a +55mm offset (6.4" BS) is aggressive for your application. The max offset we recommend for a 7.5" wide wheel is +45mm (6" BS). I recommend test fitting the wheels first for inside clearance. As far as the tire size goes, 225/40-18's will more than likely rub. Size 215/40-18 would be a better option to consider but is also aggressive and a test fit is recommended.

According to my guide, these will stick out 1/2 - 3/4" beyond the fenders not counting the tire.

I have put the FN2 wheels on my Lude with 215/40/18 Dunlop SP Sport 01 tyres....

I thought that the car would look more lowered with my new rims but it doesn't...

Here are some pictures:







The rims don't rub... the space between the rims and the brakes is minimal but ok.
Anybody suggestions for lowering the car? only with (eibach pro kit) lowering springs on original shocks? or is this bad for my Lude while it has driven 170.000 kilometres on original springs?

Hey I'm looking at getting these wheels but from the chart it says this is a grey area if your lowered which I am. I'm on kyb agx and tein s.tech, so I'm wondering if anybody knows a tire that would go with these without hitting the outside lip of the wheel well

I would run a 215/40R17. This would be a great size; not too tall, not too short, not too narrow and not too wide. These should fit like a glove without rubbing with your current stance.

What is the wheels width? (it should be stamped in to the back of it if you don't know) What is your vehicles year? What tire are you planning on running?

The +38mm offset is aggressive with 215's installed. If you're lowered, you'll more than likely have some rubbing. You may want to consider running tire size 205/45-17.

Even with factory suspension, it's aggressive.
