That order sucks...
1. 40mm offset for 17x7 rims will rub even at stock height.
2. 215/45/17 is larger than stock specs, giving you worse performance as well as a messed up odo/speedo. 251/40/17 is the correct size.
3. Yokohama H4s are inferior to your stock potenzas.

It looks like you are going all looks and no function here...I will guarantee you will regret this setup.

thanks for the input on the tires.. What about Yokohama Paradas?.. i heard they were alright.

and about 17x7 rubbin at stock height with 40mm offset.. someone told me it's the equivalent as 17x7.5 with 44mm offset.. I've had ppl tell me it rubs and other ppl tell me it doesn't, so who knows.

those are totally different specs from a 17x7 with 40mm and 215/40/17.. i don't see how you came to your conclusion.

Smoothludey: Plenty of people on this board and others run lowered 1.5"+ with +40mm offset on 7" wide rims with no rubbing. A +40mm offset on 7" wide rims will give the same effective outer wheel edge position as +45mm offset on 7.5" rims. You have +45 and 7.5" wide. I think you would not be rubbing if you had narrower 215 instead of 225 series rubber...

I'm with you on 2 & 3, though...

Hey bro i bought my racing hart C2 evolutions in 17 inches for 210 a wheel and i bought the Kumoho tires for a 100 bucks each, with 215/40/17, which are the correct size. I paid out the door with balancing and installation and tax 1400 not bad, and the Kumoho's are pretty decent for a 100 bucks. I'm happy so far, but my rears were rubbing with the eibach drop, so i shaved the fenders.

Take it from me, I just had some ADR GT Sport 17x7" +40 offset, with Falken 215/45/zr17 tires on my Prelude. There is a TINY place that rubs in the rear fender well, that can be removed with a dremel, x-acto knife or file and then there was NO RUBBING at all. This was stock suspension too.

(and those rims/tires are for sale, CHEAP, e-mail [email protected] *shameless plug*)
