245/40 MPS4S here on 17x8.5 SSR Comps, great sticky summer tire and width/combo if you're not opposed to a little meat on the tire. Nice bit of lip protection, too.

My SSR Comps clear Brembos with no spacer, at ET +48 on an 8.5" wheel. So, 9.5 would put it -13, which would be right on at +35. Spoke design, however, is what it's all about.

Sounds like you're pretty far down the path. At a certain point, they do become regular wear items like pads or rotors. Big bearing wins again!

Our bearings suck. What are your wheel and alignment specs? Or are you just putting a ton of heat into the brakes and cooking them? Sounds more like the latter, if you're tracking.

Since it's a 7.5" wheel at -30mm, I'd assume that it would come out to about the same point as an 8.5" with -43mm offset, which is a pretty common (and nearly flush) setup. 13mm difference in offset...

Konig makes a decent wheel these days. As a brand they're not "reps" or garbage, but not quite a "quality" wheel, either, unless you're talking about their newer flow forged lines. For me, Enkei is a...
