What to do to make them fit?

http://sfbay.craigslist.org/sfc/pts/1129046444.html

What would be needed to make these fit my 02 coupe? I am currently lowered all the way on tein SS. Is it possible to be lowered a good amount without having to roll the fenders?

probably 2-3 degrees of negative camber gonna have to roll your fenders...
i think slow did 9.5 in the rear with 4 degrees of negative camber cause he didnt roll the fenders...

You sure the offset isn't too low? Seems a bit too much maybe..

Rolling the fenders is a must when considering aggressive wheels, otherwise you'll have to make up for it with lots of negative camber. Don't go for aggressive wheels if you don't want to take the proper precautions.

roll the fenders and then run about 3 degrees of camber. im rolling on OEM rims now so i still havent rolled my fenders even though i have the tool lol.

but they will fit if thats what your wondering. and since they are 17" they are easier to accomodate than 19"

That offset is kind of scary for that width in my opinion. Get something lower, or possibly run spacers.

Keychain was using a 17x9 +45mm wheel and the rears ended up slicing up his coilovers when he would go through dips and driveways. He's got -3 degrees of camber. If you're running a wheel wider than 9" I would suggest possibly going with a +33 offset or something like that. S2000 widths and offsets are just too high for the Accord, in my opinion.

40 was cutting it close. i think it was rubbing on my coils on driveways but when i took the wheel off i didnt see any paint chip off the coils. maybe it was sitting the spring? idk. im sure a skinny spacer would have solved the problem. so i dont think you would need as low as 33 offset. maybe some thing as high as 38 would work also.

OH and when i put my car on the alignment rack yesturday it was showing -4.7 camber and -4.6 for the rear. lol i dont know how it got that bad. This was with 17" oem honda wheels and 225/45/17 tires. I had it set to -4 for the staggered setup but i changed wheels and put it on the rack and it was way different.

That's a pretty intense amount of camber. How much gap did you have between the inside of your fenders and your tires? Lol

wow. that's some camber there. i had it close to 4 on my civic before i put a kit on the rear. But yeah the ride still has to be practical since i have passengers sometimes and i too go 50-60 miles round trip for school.
