How much play do I have with that setup? Would it be just too big and wide? Would it hit any parts of the front suspension? Rear fenders are rolled. I've read that it "can" fit but was wondering if anyone have that setup?

Only reason why i'm asking is because I can get a brand new set for dirt cheap. It would be great for next season's autocross.

im on 16x8's (50 offset) running 245/45/16 hankooks.

the rt615 azenis have .1inch wider section width than the azenis.

if its a lower offset, is it closer to the suspension components? i forgot.

im like 1/4 to 1/8th of an inch from rubbing on the suspension components up front.

with a full fender roll, it should fit in the rear. Im running a +3 mm spacer in the rear so it is like im running 245's on a 47 offset. in the front you will rub depending on how low you go (if you have coilovers).

i say go for it. i know the rear will fit, and the front should.

I'm running 235/40R17 on my Kosei 17x8 on a +45 offset.

THe higher offset the the closer the barrel of the wheel is inward towards the suspension. I have my fenders rolled ALOT ask arch here. I would say 245 might fit, havn't had the rims on for a good 3 weeks now so not sure.

Well, I currently have the MX 235/45-17's on SSR 17x8 +48 and that fits fine with the fender rolled. I'm not sure if bumping it up to a 245, which adds about .1 inch makes a difference. Probably not.

sorry guys, way old, but just checking to see what ended up happening. i'm looking at a setup that would be about 3/8 further out than the setup you talked about

Wish I can help and tell you but I don't have them mounted on the SSR's yet. I probably won't until maybe halfway through the summer as I still got about 4/32 left on my Kumho MX's.
