Default 17x8 comets on 240.

I was told that running a 25mm in the front would be enough but after checking things it's very tight. 30mm seems more reasonable. Just final checking before i place an order. Anyone running the 17x8 comets running a 25mm? What size tire are you running? Pics?

I thought most were runnin 25 front and 32 rear. But it’s been a while so I’m a little rusty.

comets are 17x7.5J not 17x8.

I run a 32mm spacer in the front of my 245 with propus-c wheels for coilover clearance.

I thought there were 2 sizes for the comets. My bad. With the 32mm spacers, are the wheels still flush to the body or do they stick out some

comets come in both 7.5" and 7" wide, both 43mm offset
the 7.5" wide ones were from C70s. I just put my 7.5" comet winter wheels on
