Re: will this work?

No problem. Although 4 1/2" bs front and rear looks and fits better.
I have 235/45R17's on 17x7's w/ 4"bs front, and 275/40R17's on 17x8's with 4 1/2" bs rear. My car is lowered 2" in the front with 500lb springs and stock height in the rear.

Re: will this work?

8" rim with 4" bs will stick out from the fender lip a little, or may be flush anyway. But on a stock height car should still fit with 225/45 or 235/45 tires. The other thing is did you check to see if the wheels will clear your brakes? Do your wheels not come in 4 1/2" bs?

Re: will this work?

I think the rears will fit. They may stick out a little, but on a stock set up they should work. The fronts may work on a stock set up as well , but I think they will stick out even with the fender lip.

Re: will this work?

The tire sizes are fine. The popular backspace for the front is 4.75". With the aftermarket discs in the front the wheels may even be pushed out a little more. I would not even consider a 4" backspace in the front. If you ever wanted to lower the car you would be buzzing the tires on the fender lips and you may do that anyway. Didn't we go through this in another thread recently?

Re: will this work?

Hey no need to apologize. I didn't mean to be harsh but this sounded like something we just went over. If this helps at all the backspace should stay about the same whether you are talking about 17s, 18s, 19s or even 20s. What changes is side wall profile - example 235/45-17, 235/40-18, 235/35-19 are all about the same overall diameter (25.32 - 25.4 - 25.47) but the sidewall gets shorter as the wheel diameter increases. So a 235/45-17 and a 235/40-18 almost interchange. The sidewall is a little squarer but they all need about the same amount of room.
