    17" BBS 8.5 wide 235/45... Yes or No?

    As the thread says
    i have a 2001.5 sedan. Will it rub on a control arm or do i need spacers? I currently have 245/45/17/8 and its close enough that i cant fit my pinky, so i'm wondering if it's going to be a super close fit? and then, will i need my fenders pulled?

    If the offset is the same for both sets of wheels, the 235s will give you an additional .2 inches(5mm) of back space. Speedo will be a bit off, if that matters.... So the answer is yes.
