Had a quick search and can't dig up anything concrete...

Will 17x8 ET45 RPF1's fit on a 215/225 45 tyre without arch work?

Thanks

That wheel size will be very close to the rear trailing arm and may actually fowl.
I ended up buying ET35. Possibly could of got away with no arch rolling but I didn't risk it.
This is what it looks like with -2° of camber with a 215/45 track tyre.

Ah... I may just opt for the 7.5J and run a spacer then. Don't have access to an arch roller unfortunately and I'll begrudgingly pay somebody to do something I can do haha

Thanks

A hammer does the same job as a roller...

Should slide under no sweat with that offset.
