9.5" with a +55 offset seems to be the magic number for widest rear rims with the least amount of fender work. You should be fine with a 1-1.5" drop, just get an alignment. They should be able to adjust the camber close to the stock settings. If you do decide to get those sizes, the front tires can be 215/45 R17 or 225/45 R17. For the rear, you probably want to use 255/40 R17. 255/45 is a tad too big, you'll probably need to shave or roll your rear fenders to fit 255s as well.MannyBlaze said:OK THIS IS THE DEAL. SINCE I HEARD YOUR ACCELERATION SUCKS AFTER SWITHCING TO 18. IM THINKING OF BUYIND A SET OF WHEELS 17 IN. WHAT IS THE WIDEST YOU CAN GO IN THE REAR. MY PLAN IS TO GET 17X8 F AND 17X9.5 REAR SO I CAN USE 225 F, 255 R. IM PLANING TO USE TEIN FLEX WITH THE EDFC. AND DROP IT ABOUT 1 OR 1.5. WILL MY TIRE WEAR. CAN I CORRECT TIRE WEAR WITH THIS DROP? I REALLY WANT MY WHEELS TO BE AS WIDE AS THE CURRENT BMW M3. WILL IT RUB WITH THIS DROP?
