what do you think.9/9.5.+12offset..

Found some rims that i really like the style and color of.
But im not sure how they will fit:seeing the thread "the adventures of doctor x and keychain"
I like how the wheels are flush and tires are streched.

but what do yall think;will that ruin my light-weight 17" rota subzero plans?

17x9.0 +12offset Front
17x9.5 +12 offset Rear

center core:67.1mm..

and for people who are curious they are Rota P45R, bronze color.

i doubt they will fit on a 6gen but i could be wrong.. 7gen yes they will fit with camber and rolled fenders.

+12?! You're gonna have to flare those fenders...or roll 4x4.

+12 is really intense. I really don't think it will fit without pulling the fenders or running flares.

You can make them work, but I don't think you'd be willing to do what it takes for that to happen...my $.02. Move on & look for another set.

well i wouldnt slam my car with them,just enough where they just sit under the fenders/quarter.

I already have my fender lip/tabs cut off and no fender liners.Id get my fenders rolled and quarters rolled,and cut the tab off the bumper and just screw in the bumper with tapping screws.

but would they stick out way to much? and would i still be able to run a BBK with that offset?

thats a crazy low offset. more than likely any bbk for accords will work with that low of an offset. but i dont think u can make it work without flares

You would have to run A LOT of negative camber (so much that it would negate your reasoning for getting the wider setup...traction), and it would still look much worse than this:


Cliff notes: look for another set of wheels.

Checked out Rota's official website..and they offer
17x9 +25 offset would that be any better?

i dont understand how to read the wheel offset calculator:
Inner Clearance:2mm LESS
Outer Position:EXTEND an extra 36mm

17x9 +25 would still be pretty extreme, but it could work if you really wanted to make the effort. You'll end up running quite a bit of negative camber, so if unless you don't mind replacing your tires pretty often from inner camber-wear, try to find something in the 30-40 range.

Rota Torque comes in 17x9 +30, a little bit better: http://www.rotawheels.com/wheels.asp?wheelid=45

Rota Slip Stream comes in 17x8.5 +40, a nice fit: http://www.rotawheels.com/wheels.asp?wheelid=40

As far as the wheel offset calculator goes, it's comparing the position of the potential wheels/tire setup to your current setup. So if it's saying "2mm less for the inner clearance", that means you'd have 2mm less room between the inner wheel and the strut housing compared to your current setup. If it's saying "extend an extra 36mm for the outer position", that means the setup would stick out 36mm further than your current setup does. It's surprisingly accurate, I used it to order my wheels and it was dead-on.

So take a look at your car the way it is now, take a rule & measure 36mm (about 1.4 inches) from the outside of your wheels, and that's how far the 17x9 +25 would stick out. It may or may work without a lot of modification.

Thanks alot Brad..I really like the style P45R tho..ill take some measurements tmr. 1.4" isnt too too bad sticking out but ya itl be sticking out and i cant tuck anymore.

but its either those..or just plain 17x7.5 subzeros +45 for performance.
and to clear a BBK.

Im pretty sure you could run a 17x9 +25, you just need to do a bit of stretch. You guys expect to run a 9 wide and have meaty tires? Yeah right, have fun with that.

If you do a 9 wide just a 215/40 would be fine.

That a lil too extreme! i dont know why wheel companys dont just start doing custom ordering,i know thay do but it too much and wait is too long...
Im thinking of switching to a D2 18x8 35mm offset anyone rolling a setup close to that?......
as far as the +12,wow.........

Yeah too low of an offset for a 6th gen especially when your turbo'd. A 9.5 +12 in the front will stick out way too much and you will loose traction running such negative camber.
