What are the widest tyres you can run on Evo v arches

Hi Iím after the following information

Could a 245 in 17Ē be used if running standard arches with no arch liners on say a 9Ē wide wheel.

Iím not after looks but would like to run a decent width tyre.

I'd assume that would be offset dependant.

I've run 17x9J ET27 with 235/40 with no issues.

245 might be pushing it if you're going 245/45.

245 will be fine on the rear as Iím going mad mac motorsport rears but interested in the front.

I currently run 225 so hoping to gain 20mm on the front if possible

I ran 245 40 18 (IIRC, but def 18's and 245) on my 5 at first, they would catch on the rears on hard bumps or with 5 people in the car, but not bad enough to be an issue. Dont remember any issues with fronts at all. This was on Compomotive MO's

Thanks Stu

As we spoke my cars fully caged so no rear passengers hard Coilovers and soon to be the mad mac arches so Iím thinking rear will be fine.

I am just trying to increase the surface area on the road. Will be having the car set up properly by someone in the know once I have finished building everything back up. Iím just hoping the cost of going from 4-5 gear is worth the hassle not interested in the looks really

255/40/17's are what the Japanese time attack cars like Cyber & JUN ran back in the early 2000s.

with right offset, you may be able to use 18x9 or 18x9.5 wheel to stuff 265/35x18.
255/40x17 on 17x9 +35 or 17x9.5 +38.
So 265 would work on +44mm offset or there abouts.

Should clear rear trailing arm just.

There are rear trailing arms available to push wheel/tire package deeper..if you do get there needing, PM me and I'll share contact. Price is $600 for pair or arms, and work on E7/8/9 as well.
