235/40/17 on 17x9 +35 Enkei RPF1?

will this stretching the tires a bit? Iíve used 245/50/17 before on the same size wheels but did not like the fact the front tires are sticking out a bit.

235/40 is hardly a stretch. The Stock tires look stretched on a 17x9. What 235/40 are you getting? They are fairly rare. You could also get a 245/40/17. They are stock diameter.

245/50 17 is way too tall of a sidewall profile

You can bring in the poke in the front with some camber bolts or anything that allows adjustable front camber.

No rubbing issues. But a set of camber bolts in the front is suggested.

It might be close to the front fenders. Adding a little camber will solve the problem.

According to that you are gonna need around 2 degrees of negative camber up front so that you don't rub the fender.

That's wrong, sorry. Ive run 18x9 with 245/35 in the front with +37, +32, and +30 offsets. I had between -1 to -1.5 from just a set of camber bolts. Never rubbed the fender. though , I was close to the spring perch, but did not rub.

Op you will be fine.




Edit: I was also lowered more with softer springs in the front. Vs RCE Yellow springs.

You are totally right, it looks like I might have entered something wrong - that's on me, don't blame the site I linked.

I am seeing OPs setup clearing with very little camber, and to verify the site I entered the fitments you mentioned and it shows them all clearing to a similar tolerance.
