I have a G5 and need to replace my current aftermarket wheels as they are worn out. I'm looking at R1 Racing Grip but they come in 17x7 with +40mm offset and recommend here is +45mm. Wheelnext recommends using 205/40/17 but I want to use 215/45/17's verses what will I have any issues rubbing? Currently have KYB AGX and H&R Springs.
The setup you are interested in is pretty aggressive. You can run a 17x7 with a 40mm offset but this is the maximum. With a 7" wide wheel, you can run a 40mm to 45mm offset. The 40mm offset will be outside of the fender slightly. It's best to run a 45mm offset when you are lowered. I would go 205/45-17 with that set up.

Still confused!

I want to go with a 215/40/18 +48 (or +50) with a 1-1.5" drop all around. Would I go with a lower offset in this situation say +43 or so? I really don't want a 35 series tire because of the ride and noise. It seems if people can get away with 45 series with a 17" wheel, I should be able to do the 40 series and 18" wheels?

Or maybe I'm just assuming the 40 series will will be more comfortable than the 35 series. But there's treadwear and overall life of the tire which should be better for a 40 series right?

Does anyone know the offset for Konig Zero?

either 17 x 7 or 18 x 8

How much grip difference have y'all experienced between tire width sizes. For instance between 205 (stock 5th gen) and 225?

I want to lower my 5th gen 1.5" and get 17 or 18" rims to accommodate a brake kit, but I am concerned about fitment/rubbing.

thanks

In the 5-4.5 PCD, the Zero is 8" wide for both the 17" and 18" diameter. Both sizes come with a +48mm offset which is perfect for the 1.5" drop. 225's however, will be aggressive and some fender modifications may need to be made.

so will a 225/45r17 fit? i really need to know cause i am thinking about getting some pilot sport A/S plus's i am looking at a 17x7.5 rim size with offsets running from 40-45mm. is there any chance of this working, or has anyone run this in the past.

the issue is that if i run the pilots, my tire sizes are limited, and the whole reason i'm upgrading is cause thats the tire i want.

my car is a 94 vtec and 100% stock.

You'd have to test fit it to know for sure. They are a little tall according to my guide. With a stock suspension you will probably rub.

Here's a tire size calculator that can give you a little idea about the size difference from what you have now.

Alright this is a hott thread but check this out I'm planning on getting some rims real soon and this helped a lot but the site is now asking about the offset like here's detail on size: 17x 7.5 5x114.3 48mm 73mm bore and these are on rota slipstreams fully polished wit 215/40/17 falken tires and the car is already lowered on h&r springs. I flew threw the thread and didn't see anything about bore or anything I did read up on offsets though but I'm just curious and this is on a BB6

Everything looks good from my end fitment wise. The 73mm hub bore is standard on most aftermarket wheels in the 5-114.3 bolt pattern. It's larger than stock to accommodate more vehicle fitments. You just need to purchase hub rings if they don't already come with them. The correct ring size for this application is 73mm - 64.1 and we sell the set for $15.00 with free freight if you need them :bigthumb:

i have been following this thread and i just need a bit of confirmation before i decide to buy my set of rims and tires. i am thinking of buying a set of Tenzo Cuzco's 17X7". +42 offset. i think these rims come in a staggered fitment. i am planning to put some spacers (probably 5mm) to give me that aggressive stance and to put me in the 45 to 50 offset which according to this post is the best for a 7 inch wheel.

now if i am planning to drop the car probably at least 1 inch all around no more than 2, what tires would be perfect and will give me no issues with rubbing? 215/40/17 or 205/45/17?

any info or feedback would be greatly appreciated!

thankyou!

Thank you for the additional information.

Since the Cuzco 17x7 comes with a +42mm offset, you will not want to run a spacer. The 5mm spacer is going to push the wheel out further making the offset +37mm. Since you plan on lowering the vehicle, the ideal tire size to run with the +42mm offset is size 205/45-17.

btw. quick follow up question. would a tire size 205/40/17 work without any problems (with lowering the vehicle and everything) with that rim size? (17x7 +42 offset). just wondering.
