You are gonna need to do some work to fit those specs.


First off. You suspension won't be low enough to fit the wheels properly. With Pro-kits, the wheels will stick out quite a bit. You will need to drop the car around 2.5" or more to get enough natural camber to properly fit the wheels. So you will need a set of coilovers to lower the car that much.

Secondly.....225/45 tires are WAYYYYYYY too big. You will rub like crazy, especially up front. You are going to want to run a 215/40 (little bit of stretch) to not rub. Also, a 215/40 on a 17 inch wheel keeps the overall diameter very similar to stock wheels, so the speedometer will read accurately. a 225/45 would throw it off quite a bit.

In addition, you will need to get your fenders rolled for extra clearance and decreased rubbing.


Here is a friend's car with properly fitted 17x9 +25 Rota Grids.

If you have a good set of coilovers, it won't bottom out easily. They have increased spring rates to prevent that.
