Barry, i'm running 8.5x17 up front & 10x17 rear with 215/40/17 & 245/35/17 tyres, & have no rubbing catching at all(even with 4 people in the car).
the car has not been lowered or wheelarch lips rolled.
hope this is of some help.
Darren.

I know they'll fit the rear fine but I plan on running 235/40 all the way around and I'm concerned about rubbing in the front.


My car's been lowered with H&R Race springs, and I still want to run 235 all the way around. Do your wheels stick out of the fender wells at all up front? no spacers? I'm really curious if I can get away with 235/40 on a 17 x 8.5 wheel up front.
