Wheel and Tire Question.

Postby MatthewS989 » Mon Nov 10, 2014 9:50 pm

Hello GWR family. I have a question of fitment on some Enkei wheels I am looking into buying. As well as the tires for said wheels, now that I think about it. First, I should state that I installed the Ohlins coil overs from GWR and have my 2010 MX-5 lowered quite a bit.

I was looking into purchasing the gold Enkei RPF1s with 45mm offset on all fours for my car. My question is that with the car being lowered, would 235s be okay to run on the 17x8 Enkeis with that offset? I know 50 and 48mm 17x8s can fit 235s on them with no issues, but I'm not sure about the 45mm offset and it being lowered. Still a youngster and have never done a wheel and tire upgrade like this before.

Thank you all for reading and have a wonderful day!

That 235/40/17 on 45mm offset wheel might need a fender lip roll for clearance.
