How would these fit on a 9.5" wheel and on my car? I have camber plates, but would rather not use them on the street since these will be my daily tires. I was originally going to get 17x9 but they won't be available until June apparently.


Edit: After more reading, it appears the 9.5" requires some camber and a 5mm spacer....so I might be stuck waiting two months My poor snow tires..
If you have camber plates but don't want to use them on street, when would you use them? Install them only for track days and then remove afterwards each time?

For a 9.5, I would go 255 or 265. 245 will be stretched on a 9.5.
