So 25mm spacers should fix the rubbing issue though, gonna roll guards, hopefully it works and fits up.

Well rears fit nicely, with a 25mm spacer, and 205/40 R17 tyres, its about 1.5inch to 2inch clearance, between guard and tyre. Still gonna need rolling and flaring so it doesn't hit when I hit a bump, but is very achievable.
So i believe my wheel is +42 offset, 17 x 7.5 with 205/40 R17 tyres, and 25mm spacers. Anyone else wants to try this, it works.

Cheers

We've gotta roll the rears a touch, but otherwise they fit well

Running an 18" tire on a 17" wheel? Putting that engineering degree to use! Lol...

Lack of sidewall? I was uneasy about 40 series tires...

I am trying to decide on a wheel size and am not sure what will fit best. ST165 with GC coilovers. I want to run a 16 inch wheel and these are the available sizes.
16X8+25
16X9+15
16X9+25

Should I stick with the 8 inchers or try for the 9? and if I go with the 9 should I get the lower offset? Thanks guys!!
