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..
Alex, I've replied to your PM. The 245/40/17 will indeed be stretched a little bit, and you are correct that you would also need a 5mm spacer for the 17x9.5" ET35 to clear your struts. With these you would need to use your camber plates to dial in about -2.8 degrees of camber for a 255/40/17, but since you're using a 245/40/17 that stretches, you may be able to get away with a tad over -2 degrees. We just recently sold out but have a production starting for the 17x9.0" ET30 wheels as of now, and they should be here in the next 8~ weeks.
