Title: Help pls
Post by: zettaryouuu on August 28, 2019, 07:02:51 PM
Good afternoon, I'm about to buy the 7.5jx17 rims on et 45, I was wondering if it fits the fender or more inside please.

As 18*8*ET45 is a common fitment without issues, often with lowered suspension, you should be fine.

What spec do you have on now?

an 18x8 et 45 and a 17x7.5 et 45 have a difference of 6mm in poke so doesn’t really help

I have 18x8 45ET's on mine with 225/40-18 rubber. The tires fit inside the fenders with a pushing-up of the front fender liner screw...but I believe a 235 tire would not...because I cannot fit my little finger between the rear tire and fender;

Thank you all.
I will opt for the 18x8 rims, but since we are in the rims, what are the best ets in rims 16,17?

Nice car ROH ECHT :)

Else, eibach springs 30mm ahead and 45 / 50mm behind, is too low? My car is a jeep ahahha

This means you are going 30mm lower in front and 45mm to 50mm lower in back? Yes? It is not too low for the 18x8 wheels with 45ET.

Best ET for 16 and 17 inch wheels?
OK, if not really going with the 18x8's...are you thinking of 16 or 17 inch wheels with less pos+ ET so to have more poke beyond the fenders? Depending on amount of drop...you could also go wider with 16 and 17's. But... :sad1:
