running 17x9 et30's on the rear isn't for the conservative at heart. Of course it depends on the true width of the tire (which varies among tire brands), but most 225's would rub a great deal on that setup when lowered. This is true of the 452's which stretch a little, but not a whole lot.

You'd be better off with the second scenario that you listed, but even then 205's would be preferred if you're going to really lower the car.
