I'm getting a set next week for my 7 with 8 Enkies. It will be close but I'll let you know ... my plan is to raise the ride height a bit if needs be.

Hi
Just test fitted the AD08R 245/45/17 on my Evo 7 and they fit fine. They are on Evo 8 Enkies and suspension is lowered. There is less clearance of course but enough to avoid rubbing on standard arches, ie not rolled.

Cheers
Rich

Rich,
Out of curiosity, have you tested it with people sitting at the back, wonder if that would make any difference. Iíve had my old 9 lowered on Eibach springs with 8.5j wide wheels with 235wide tyres and even with 5 people on board it was absolutely fine, it filled in arches well but it never rubbed on it.

Cheers
Goran

No haven't tried that but I have probably 1 persons weight of tools etc in boot. Also have heavy springs so probably the real proof will be on track giving it some!

Mine was ok on the track. I used A048ís and last few years ran full slicks, no issues on hard cornering. Canít remember exactly what springs Iíve had on it but I do remember it was harder ride though

Glad you found the right fit. If you'll be needing spares, there is no better place to look than 4WheelOnline. They have a huge selection of wheels and tires in their online store.
