Ok, my latest idea:

Front: 17x7.5 ET41
Rear: 17x8.5 ET41

I'd be going 205/40-17 Falken FK452 on all four. I'm currently running 15mm spacers, that might work IMHO.

Suspension: KW V1, Dr Krumm fixed camber plates up front (-1.75), still havn't installed my Eibach rear control arms...

Would be going on this;

You might need a little spacer on the back to clear everything, but it will fit just fine.

Coen, I think the rear really won't fit. you have to do something to the body of the car. you already had seen i already had to roll the body wider.

Rally's fronts are 17x8, you can tell from those pics that the lip is different front/rear!

You'll also lose 12mm of inside clearance in the back... Front will poke 12mm more than Rally's, inside will be nearly the same.

@ragnar.. you are running 18" x8.5 with a 215 tire..
I'll be running 17" and 205's all-round I guess..

Martijn.. you're right.. read to quickly through Andrews pm..

new specs

I can buy a set of wheels in:
17x8.5 + 28.5 front (after taking off 3mm of the centre)
17x8.5 + 18.5 rear (after taking off 3mm of the centre)


Rally is doing:
17x8+35 front
17x9+35 rear


This means IMO:
FRONT
13mm more poke +
01mm more clearance on the inside

REAR:
11mm more poke +
23mm more clearance on the inside

I don't think that the front is the problem because I can set more camber then Rally because his shock house is filled with airbag (correct me if I'm wrong)
The rear I guess can be a problem tho...

How ever I am not afraid to poke a bit but I don't want to go crazy like the UK guys with his 9.75J in the back

Depends how low you wanna go, but i bet you'll be alright. If anything, just add some more camber. 11mm more poke isn't really that much. Just be sure to get 205's that stretch really well.

I would go a little lower (and add more camber) then with my BBS
Like this:
This was 17x8.5+33 with little camber up front and stock camber in the back

So you think I'll be alright with some camber links in the back falken ziex 912 (205-45)
And some more camber upfront??

Sorry for overload on pics.. I just don't want to end up with shitty wheels

With enough work you can make it happen. It's only a little more poke than those pictures.

Do like I did and cut out all the useless metal under the arches. It will do wonders for you.

It's hard to say because people tend to measure backspace and widths differently.

Widths are measured from bead to bead while the backspace is measured from the hub pad, psat the bead to the outside edge of the inner lip. Some people forget that and just measure to the bead again which causes trouble.

If he measured backspace correctly, then yes the offsets you calculated are right.
