That was probably DOHCammin if he submitted it. If it isn't his setup maybe PM him and he'd know where to find out more.

Or if he checks the thread, that'd be great so we can have the communication here.

-Tire Size- 235/45/17 General Exclaim UHP
-Rota Tarmac 2 17x7.5
-+48
-None at rest, possibly slight rubbing when really pushing the car (not much room to the rear strut bodies, but enough that a 245 of this tire would probably still barely clear)
-Suspension -entirely stock

Tire brand and size: Yokohama A032 245/40/17
Rim width and height: Rota Torque 17"x8"
Rim offset: +48mm
Any rubbing: none audibly noticeable
Suspension: 04 USDM STi struts/ JDM Pink springs / Group N Top hats
Using any spacers: no

Test fit these today at a buddy's place. Went for a drive and put them through the paces around some hard corners and a few bumps. No rubbing sounds whatsover. I would estimate there's 1 3/4 inches of space between the tire and the strut tower, can barely get two fingers back there. Might be sketchy getting 255's to fit.

Input needed: I have an '07 XT Sport, and wanted to run an 18x7.5 wheel with stock struts and Swift springs.
Offset and tire size recommendations, please?
Thanks.

Edit: Forget it, I think I've figured out what I need.
