hey im thinking about trading a guy my 17x7.5 rota tarmac II's for his 17 x 8.5 rota slipstreams. my question is, would a 8.5 fit under the fenders without any modifications? i know obviously im not lowered yet but as soon as some springs come out i plan to lower. also, what size tires are everyone running. i know the stock tires are a 50 series, but my rotas are 225-45/17's and the rotas i plan on getting are 235-40/ 17's... i dont want to go to small and mess with the speedo over 3 or so mph. thanks

Good question. A 235 wide tire will fit in the wheel wheel. I have at least 10mm of extra space in my wheel well on my 2.5i and I have 225s on there. Although I'm running a prodrive 17x7...not a 8.5.

What is the offset of the slipstreams, that can make a huge difference.
