Also looking for this, but I have sport suspension.2nd
I'm trying to decide between going with 17s or 18s on my wagon. I'd like to have a good combination of a fairly aggressive square setup that's still comfortable, without having to roll the fenders.
My touring is sitting on stock,
non-sport package suspension.
Yes. I have the ST Suspension coilovers and I run a small spacer up front to clear the spring/perch. Here are my 2 setups:Has anyone needed to run spacers for a 17x8.5 ET40 set? I have KW made coilovers (think ST suspensions and the like), and have needed to run a 3mm spacer (might have to go to a 5mm) to clear the spring perch/shock. My car is not particularly low, but my tyres (Michelin Pilot Sport 4 in 235/45/17 square) have very little clearance with the struts in the front. With no spacer, I could fit 1 credit card in, and with a 3mm, I can fit 3, possibly 4. Any ideas?
My fronts with the 3mm spacers clear with 2.5mm. My rears are fine, as I assume yours are too. I am running 235/45/17, so I think that would explain why I can get away with a 3mm instead of the 5mm with your 245s.Yes. I have the ST Suspension coilovers and I run a small spacer up front to clear the spring/perch. Here are my 2 setups:
18x8.5 et35 with a 225-40-18 tire (wheel lip is closest point)
17x8.5 et35 with a 245-40-17 tire (tire is closest point)
Both combos are within 1-2mm of the spring. You'll need around a 5mm spacer with your et40 wheels.
I thought I drove a lot at 120 miles a day. Shit.Yeah I see that now that they're on... Maybe next time, I don't mind too much at the moment since I drive 250 miles a day to and from work so cheap replacements are helpful... I was worried about fitment so I played it safe I do see now I could have fit much more tire

Seems a bit odd to me that you had to shave fender to fit a 225 while MBCO is running 245's with a roll and no issues. He also has H&R cups which are supposed to be lower than the Eibach pro kit, right?17x9 et 30
Eibach Pro Kit/Koni FSD
Shaved a good amount of rear fender lip to fit
No fender mods to the front
