  • 235/40's on 17X8 et40?

    I would like to put on a set of 235/40 Toyo R1R's. I know these are an inch larger than the stock diameter, but wondered if I would have any issues with them rubbing?

    Some have had issues with that size rubbing up front. You should not have an issue with the rear in that size at all (99.9% sure that you'll be good with the rear). The ideal size is 245/35/17 which is also a size that is uniquely offered by the R1R range. I have the 245/35/17 on all four corners with a front 8 inch /rear 8.5 inch wide staggered setup.

        The tires may fit, but with an ET40 you'll need 15-20mm spacers or else wheel contacts the strut.
