What's the widest wheel and lowest offset one has fit without insane amounts of negative camber on a CT So far?

I have a few wheels in mind that I have owned and loved in the past:

17x9 +44 Work Emotions concave face (haven't looked into if they make them in 5x100 yet)
18x9.5 +40 Enkei NT03M's concave face (only 5x114.3, would need to re-drill)

I am getting my CT on sat, and will do springs and wheels in the very near future.

Other possible wheels would be Enkei 17x9 +45 RPF1's.

I would only like to roll the fenders, no pull.

Thanks guys!!

I saw that he's running 19x8.5 and 225's, didn't see the offsets mentioned.

I saw another thread where someone with spacers and Tridents was essentially running 17x7 +11 and +21. So the x9 +45 would work. (outter Clarence, not positive on strut to inner wheel)

I think the concave emotions would look great on the car. I'm going to look into the 5x100

And I've seen RPF1's in 5x100 17x9 +35 (Subaru figment)
I like the way those look. So that's a possibility if they will fit.

Rears will be fine as per the 17x7 +36 with 25mm spacer on rear, but fronts might rub...can anyone confirm the front fitment?

Honestly the only way to know what you're getting into is take the stock wheel specs, plug the new wheel specs into an offest calculator and measure the different against the wheel. Obviously there will be some variables due to the tire sidewall, cambler, fender clearance etc. But you'll have a true and accurate gauge of where you need to be.

If you need help with this just ask. I've been doing wheel fitment for like 10+ years and I used to work at a shop. :)

Are those the concave ones? I know they don't concave in 17" only in 18" and only in 9.5 width at plus 40 offset. (I had those on my s2000)

Also the 5x100 is custom drilled for concave face on those wheels. They're not a stock wheel if those are indeed factory (Enkei) drilled 5x100 and concave 18x9.5 +40.

If crazy amounts of camber aren't needed, I'd love a set of concave face NT03M's...I'm going to look into this! I'd be okay with -1.5 to -2deg. Any higher and I don't think the trade offs are worth it.

A 9.5" wide wheel has a 241.3mm width. 235's would be slightly stretched on there...225's would be very stretched which I'm not a fan of.


235/40/18 has 25.40" O.D.
215/45/17 has 24.61" O.D. (Stock size)

3.12% difference.
