I think you might have issues with the 235s being a bit wide for the guards and the wheels will be extremely close to the rear trailing arms on the inner edge of the wheels. I put Evo 8 enkies on mine in that width and had those issues so it might pay to check once you put them on. Maybe the offset might help a bit?

Yea I did think it could be an issue, I have been considering flaring the tears a bit so they kinda match the evo fronts and I can roll the lips on the fronts too, so the guards don’t worry me, it’ll be the trailing arms and the coil overs I’ll have to contend with I think lol. Thanks for the heads up.

What offset are the enkies for reference? Do you have a pic with them on?

Hey Ian, have you had a chance to test fit those 17x8's? I'm looking at similar sizes and it'd be a big help if I can get some info off you.

Hi mate, yea fitted them with the 235/45 tyres and never would of been able to drive on them without serious guard work, inner and outer, I had 215/40 tyres fitted and the fronts are fine but the rears I had to pump the guards out a bit (they were previously rolled) and the bumper tabs will need addressing, I just took the bumper off and bent the metal tab away for now

Yea, and I think gsr front guards would need to be at least rolled to fit these wheels, depending on your ride height I guess

I’ll get some photos for you

It’s actually really hard to get good photos, but here are some anyway.

You can see the fronts are flush with the guard looking from the top, so they would poke out on gsr guards.

The rears probably would have fitted just with rolled inner lips and bent bumper tabs but I thought I’d rather pump them out a bit and give it some extra clearance.

D Windows look sweet!

 

Front caster looks weird below? Or is it just the photo - the fronts look set back.

Yea it is different compared to the other side too, the guy that did the wheel alignment didn’t say anything about it and it drives fine lol. Thanks man :)
