Hello,

I was looking for low price rims and I just saw stock EVO8 Enkei Wheel which
I could buy around $300 for set. and I am kindda like its looks too.

but how you guys think?? and very basic question, does this rim fit in TSX with its stock tire?

oh. btw this is the picture.

The recommended rim width for the stock tire (215/50/17) is 6" - 7.5". If the stock Evo8 wheel is 17x8, then I would not recommend those rims with the stock tire.

i'm pretty sure the offset is +38 on evo wheels

you can run the 215/50r17 tires, they will be stretched though.

I would personally go with a 235/45r17 tire (prefect for track days)

The offset is pretty low, though. I'm sure enough negative camber and fender rolling would do the trick.

FYI, the SCCA SPEED Tour Car series cars (RealTime Racing TSXs) run 17x8's with 235/40r17 Toyo R888s. I don't know the offset they run, though.

Yes, you can run 215/50 on them. They will be stretched.

I'm actually running 225/40 on a 8.5in wide wheel. And I'm pretty sure my cousin is running a 215/40 on his 8in wide wheel. see pictures below for reference, although you can't really tell..





look above! horro and proto already answered this!
