Mach V's new BRZ on 17x9, 255/40R17

21 miles on it, and we're modifying it already...











The wheels are our own Mach V Awesome, 17x9 +42, satin black on the left side, gunmetal on the right. Tires are 255/40R17. I would probably go with a 245, but we already had the 255's on hand and mounted up, so we just bolted those on. At least at full ride height, I have not been able to get it to rub. If we lower it, it would probably rub.

These seem like a really nice cost effective 17x9 solution for those who need it.

Is 235 too much of a stretch?

I wonder if that would fit in the fenders...

Yeah, everyone says that. Heck, even my 12-year-old, non-car-person daughter looked at the car and said, "It looks like it's on tip-toes. I think it needs to be lower."

We're working on it. Stay tuned for Mach V springs for this car.

On that point-- i don't think the lowering needs to be drastic. An inch should do the trick, in my opinion. Either way, i think it looks very nice.

I love the wheels!
As stated.. needs a drop.
I'd like to see the silver color wheels with some 245/40's on them. Maybe I'll see them on my own car later this summer.

These wheels look like they match the BRZ. The wheels seem to flow niceley with the car. With a drop (and no rubbing) this would look even better!

245 would be better. 235 would obviously fit easily in the fenders, but would be narrower than the 9" wheel.

Yeah, just trying to avoid any fender mods (or rubbing), and keep close to the stock diameter.

17x8 or 8.5 would be awesome, but there has to be a big enough market for you to make it worthwhile.
