Current summer wheels set up is 17x7.5 +45 and running 205 40 17's and running pretty low on D2 coils

They are pretty sunken in and want a flush fitment now that I'm on coils. I know I want to go with -3° in the rear. Question I now have it what rear hub spacers am I going to need and will I need a tire with stretch? I have yet to get my fenders rolled. I want to maintaine my current ride high but don't want to jam my wheel lip into my fender! Also in the future(aka when I find a used set of wheels) I want to run a 17 with a 20 to 25 offset.

Wheels, tires, camber are all new to me so any help would be great!

Thanks in advance.

I had 17x7+40, so very similar specs, and ran -3 and 25mm spacers. It should not rub if you rolled properly.




This is no camber, spaced 22.7mm (stacked shims)

You might as well order extended studs for the front and press them yourself, it's worth it to be able to add 5mm, 10mm, or 15mm, if you want.

Awesome thanks! I've pressed my own front studs(had a bad habit of
Over torquing them) so ill grab some longer ones. Ordered some -3° shims today and looking around for what size hub spacers I need. Worst part is I can't nail down what wheels I want and still not 100% sure in size. I want so much and can only buy once!

I was running 17x7.5. With 1/4" wheel spacers from autozone. But I had to take them off bcuZ I didn't have a hub ring to fit. Does anyone know exactly where to buy 1/2" 73.1mm to 54.1mm hub ring??? Or does anyone around Philly know a good shop to go to. Also my tires are 215/45 r17 42+ offset.
