The point of this is to put the info all in one place. This is for non-stock sizes, of course.

The info needed is:
-Wheel brand and name
-Wheel diameter and width (front size & rear size)
-Offset (front & rear if they differ)
-Tire size (front size & rear size)
-Lowered or not
-Rubbing? (Categorized as either "Often", "Rarely" or "Never" to keep it consistent)

Those running spacers or modified fenders need not apply - I don't want to over-complicate things. I'll update this first post to reflect the info, and maybe sort them by size, so people don't have to scroll through pages of posts. I'll
later remove these instructions. I realize different tire brands have different construction dimensions...but I wouldn't suggest mentioning tire brands unless they are race compound tires since they can have the really square sidewalls.

I'll get it started. Please contribute. Multiple contributions for the same sizes are fine and encouraged. But please, no contributions that are missing info.

Oh, yeah! Good memory, there, Joe! I'm going to have to guess at the wheel width, and don't know the offset.

- Giovanna Nagano
- 17X7 front and rear
- 205/40-17 front and rear (205's all around!)
- unknown offset
- Not lowered
- Rare rubbing, but not driven hard before replaced.

For the record, these were the wheels the PO sold me the car with.
Yuck!

i'm running 5zigen Inperio-08 17" wheels with Falken ziex 205/45 tires all round. I've though of changing the rears to 225/45 or is 215/45 the maximum i should go for? will the 225's pose any problems?
