      16x9/5x100 with 205/40/16's ET25

      Stock VR fenders and brakes. ST Coilovers, about in the middle threads.

      5mm spacers on back, and ground down about 3mm off carriers to clear front breaks.

      Final ET20 rear, ET25 front.

      No rubbing what so ever.

      Cleaned this thread up to make it easier to find the specs. Deleted all of 124 non-technical posts.

      Except this one.

      I also finally added it to the sticky at the top of the forum.

      Hey Everyone,

      I'm looking to buy 3pc Schmidt Modern Lines from Tuner Shop. What has worked well for others?
      5x100 Rim 8.0 x 16 All around
      or
      5x100 Rim 8.0 x 16 FRONT ____ 5x100 Rim 8.5 x 16 REAR

      - NOT looking to pull/roll fenders.
      - Looking for flush or minimal poke.
      - Any advice on wheel sizes and ET?
      - Any advise on tire sizes (205/215)

      PLEASE NOTE: I'm running Koni Coilovers


      Dan :-)

      I am currently rebuilding a set of 3 piece rims and trying to determine how much my rim can go past the outside of my fenders without rubbing. I have rolled and pulled all four fenders. My current set up I want to run I have measured that the outside of the rim will protrude past the front and rear fenders by 3/4".

      Rim specs will be
      Front 17x8-1/2" et 14
      Rear 17x8-1/2" et 1
      Planning to run 215-40's all around

      That's the size tire I want as well. The pros have recommended 8.0" (or 8.5" rim if you want the stretched look for some pointless reason). Ideal ET is 35.. with a rear fender roll

      I don't know how much poke has to do with rubbing vs tire size and how low you are!

      et1 is going to be a lot of poke. I am running 17x9 et 15 on pulled and rolled fenders and I have about 15 to 20mm poke. So poke will be close to mine if you do the math.

      oh yeah I am also running 215 x 40 on the 9 and have a 1 finger gap. It rubs on bumps, potholes at 30+ MPH
