Has anyone rune a 17x8 on their Teg yet?

I am currently using a 17x7.5 for my HPDE events and want to step up to a 17x8 with a 235-40-17......

I have seen some on some HC race cars ( EK civics)

I figured someone might have tried it on here.

Thanks!

Also I searched on here..no definitve answer hence the posted question...



I run a large front brake kit (Baer 13")



therefore no small wheels

Also I am already running R compounds.......

Wonderful..... I am on my second set of rotors due to wearing the slots off the first set.

Note: running Race pads on the street may lead to shortened rotor life


I love being able to brake later than most cars @ events and do it all day long.....

what is the offset of those wheels, i'm also looking for a 8 inch wide wheel, just to clear my future big brake kit (from an RL). I just need to know what offset would work without rubbing suspension parts.

your not gonna rub on suspensions parts youll rub on the lip of the fender... roll it out and you will have no worries

I could try putting them on my sedan and let u know.

I currently run the same wheels as you (CP035's) which are 178x7.5 with a 215/40/17 or maybes a 35/17 and i have them spaced out 2mm and they dont rub, and my fenders arent rolled in the rear, only the front tabs are rolled.

How about 16x8? would the extra inch smaller get away from rubbing?
not really, cause 16" has the worst tire selection and tire sizes ever.

and i assume the original poster is scootin' out on the track so thats why he wants the 235 width tires and a 17" for less tire flex (as well as fitting over the brakes)
