Hi Guys,

I've been told mixed things about the preferred sizes / max rim size you can fit. The purpose of my Evo is to be driven so I don't want it slammed & scrapping guards etc.

I have found some perfect Enkei RPF1's that are 17x9.5+18 with NS2R semi's that I like but assuming they'll be to wide?

Is 17x8.5's the max? I have Evo 7 rims on at the moment.

Thanks.

What size tyre is the semi? the rim size (9.5" +15/18) barely fits a ct9a with 235 tyres and that's with rolling the rears with -3 front and -2.5 rear camber. 
For the CP9A you'd need to cut away plastic and metal if you want to run a decent sized tyre. To give you an idea, with stock alignment before the rear plastic flare was cut away, 235/45/17 semis on 17x8.5 +30 lowered 1.5" was rubbing in the rear. Personally I didn't want to cut the metal arch and couldn't fit a bigger size than 17x9 +22 without rubbing.

Thanks for the info.

Looks like they'll be way to big as the tyres are 255/45/17.
So 17x8.5 fronts and 17x9 rears would be safe if not lowered to much?

If you pick the right size then you'll be able to fit 255/40/17 tyres.

 

Stay away from mismatched front and rear sets because it will end in tears.

Sorry to butt in here, im looking at getting 17"x9 et 25 rota grids for my evo6, does anyone know if these will be safe to run on stock suspension and what tyre size i should go with so that they don't rub, or would i be better off getting the 17x8 et30,
Thanks
Glen

I've ran 18x9.5 +20 work cr kai in the past and trimmed rear plastic arches and neg 2 deg camber on fronts. If not too low you can get a way with it.
