Can the RPF1 17X9's be run with the stock suspension?

I'm running -1.7 degree camber front and -2.0 degree camber rear. Will it be okay if I just roll and slightly pull the fenders or will it rub on the inside somewhere at full lock?

Pick a 225mm wide tire and that will easily clear.

I'm wondering where will the clearance issue be? The outside (fenders) or inside (suspension)? If it's the outside that'll be fine, because I don't mind rolling and even pulling the fenders if I have to. If it's the inside, I'm stuck until I get coilovers. The good news is that you guys finally carry the coilovers I want (tein flex). I just ordered the wheels last night from you guys! Thanks for the help Brian.

Also, if I'm stuck running a 225 for now, would that be a 225/45 or 225/40?

No issue to the inside.

No issue to the outside with the 225 wide tire...either 40 or 45 series.

But if you don't mind potential need for rolling fender lips just a little then go with tire size 235/40/17 which is a perfect match for stock diameter.
