Has anyone run 17x8.5 M68's up front with 235/40/17 tires?

I have a full set of staggered M68 wheels and tires...225 up front and 245 in the rear.

I'm thinking about buying another complete set and running the 8.5 wheels all around for the track and using the 7.5 wheels as winter snow rims.

I just need to confirm I can run the M68 17x8.5 with 235 tires up front. I'm pretty sure that shouldn't be a problem because I currently run 18x8.5 ACS Type3's with 235/40/18 S0-3's without any issues.

I just wanted to confirm...

Any info would be appreciated.

Thanks!

I bought my ACS Type III's from the E46fanatics store when it was still around.

Are you interested in a set? I'm thinking about selling mine. :D

Yeah, the 18" Type III one-piece are $579 each. Mine already have mounted and balanced Bridgestone S0-3's on them. I wouldn't take anything less than $2250 + shipping.
