18X8 5-114 ET45 KAZ KZ-Z
245/40ZR-18 Riken Raptor ZR SL all the way around
about 1Ē drop
Zero fender mods
Semi aggressive at best, with function leading form.
Handles like itís on rails. Wouldnít go any less than ET45 on the offset. Rubs slightly only in the front in tight corners, only after the drop - would either go with 235ís staggered up front next round or I might adjust my BC coilover height back up slightly higher if it starts to bug (but I canít get over how awesome and FLAT this car corners). Iím not into the rims sticking out past the tires look = curb rash. Itís all about performance.
2.) 245/45/17 square on rpf1 17x9 +45 5mm space front
3.) willing to modify and cut fenders
4.) Purchased the gte swapped car last fall with various issues, but first and foremost the front camber is quite crazy. Seems like the spacer is there to prevent contact with front UCA. The rear is getting cut this winter for widebody and welds/slicks, but I would like to actually grip up front versus 2 inches of tire. I'm new here so
Do I A. purchase camber kit and maybe 17x9 +35
B. shutup and buy 18s for the front
did you use a 5mm spacer needed to clear the front suspension? I've been told a minimum of +35 is needed to clear a 9 wide but your set up is a +40. I'd love to run a square 17x9 +40 no spacer and stick a 245 or even 255 for track use.
1) inherently aggressive, for track use. I want to run 9 wide all around with sidewalls flush to slight stretch to keep sidewalls from folding over. -3.3 camber up front helps too.
2) 215/45r17 federal rs-rr (closer to a normal 225 width tire) on 2014 wrx 17x8 +51 with a 25mm 5x100 to 5x114.3 adapter making effective offset +26
3) I've rolled fenders all around, slight pull up front, front night pager rca's, battle version rear toe arm and refreshed bushings/ball joints up front. I'm willing to raise it up for better geometry out back and to fit a wider setup all around. will get UCA if needed to keep alignment within track spec after the raise. not willing to go 18
4) currently 2" lower than stock, willing to raise. it 1/2" to 1 inch if I can stick a square 17x9 +??? 255/40 or 245/40 tire. I've had 17x9 +38 255/40 rear and 17x8 +35 235/45 fronts and I didn't like it a whole lot. too much rollover on the sidewalls up front and understeers at corner exit.
main question is what offset minimum needed to run square 17x9 without a spacer? thanks
I've been told +35 by someone who races an IS and says his 17x9 +38 won't clear the suspension without a 3mm spacer (which isn't too bad) and he runs a 235/40 racing slick (close to a 245-250 street radial width) without issues but he's all fig'd out.

For a while I was running 18x9.5 +38 in front I had a little bit of clearance issues fixed by a 5 mm spacer for a while, eventually I got sick of the spacer and took a flap disk to the upper part of the spindle where it would hit and got the 3mm of clearance I needed that way. id imagine 17x9 +40 would be cutting it pretty close, might just depend on how the rear lip of the wheel is formed, some might sit back farther than the point where the tire sits which could affect it.
