You can get the hubcentric rings anywhere these wheels are sold at.

1. Get hubcentric rings. I got mine from the place I bought my wheels.

2. If you are running stock struts, the spacing to your spring perch will not change with lowering. Lowering will just reduce your clearances to the fenders, wheel wells, etc.
That being said I have 57DRs in 17x9 +38, running 245/40R17 Firehawk Indy 500s. I have stock spring/strut combo with SPC camber bolts in the top strut hole at around -1.4 degrees. If I recall the clearance is around a centimeter. (See picture)
Keep in mind different tires have slightly difference side profiles, so clearances can vary.

i'm buying used, so gonna source the rings elsewhere

the 5mm clearance was with natural camber, correct? that should be around -1.0?

No problem, man. It will be close, but I think you should be fine.



This thread helped me decide on wheels, so I will post my setup.

- Gramlights 57DR 17x9 +38 in Gunblue
- 245/40R17 Firehawk Indy 500
- Stock suspension
- SPC front camber bolts
- Camber: -1.4F, -1.2R
- Toe: 0F, 0R

I have daily driven this setup for the past year with absolutely no rubbing issues.

Thank. I wondered if 17 x 9 with 38 offset would fit stock suspension or not.

Went from 18x9.5 +38 RPF1`s to these 17x9 +38 57DR's. The car still feels great, but I feel it's not nearly as planted as it was on my previous setup. Still pleased! Moving up to 255/40's next go 'round.





Stats/Specs:
17x9 +38 Rays 57DR
245/40R17 Toyo Extensa HP
Lowered roughly 2"
Front: -2.2/Rear: -2.3
Tein Flex Z's
Voodoo13 Rear LCA's
Lots of other little suspension bits

I bought new TPMS sensors from Tire Rack. I still use my OE wheels for winter and switch codes with the Ateq Quickset.

As far as I know, there shouldn't be a problem using the OE sensors on these wheels.
