Will 235/40/17's fit without rubbing on a 7 inch wide rim

Ok. Just wanted to know if this will fit properly. If it rubs will it rub on just the fender? Whats the biggest tire width you have on a 17?

I know there is a yellow altima on this site with 235's. Last time I heard he wasnt rubbing at stock height but he did get a drop but I don't know if he's rubbing now with the drop.

I'll try to find who it is.

They don't recomment puttin 235/40zr17 on a 7.5" rim but i guess it can be done. Your biggest issue is going to be the offset of the wheel.

Thanks guys. I was looking at 225 40 17's and 215's as well. I want to get the widest tire available for a 17 that will fit an altima is what it comes down too. I dont care about rubbing fenders just suspension parts.

Ok. I just found out I got a 40mm offset and its a 17x7 rim. I hear alot of people are running 215 or 225 45/17's. I dont wanna go below a 40 profile and want my tire to be as wide as possible.

Ok so I know for a fact 235/45/17 tires will fit on my wheels so the 235/40's I am assuming shouldnt be a problem. It doesnt look like I will rub on the fender because I still got a nice gap with the 40 profile. My only concern is rubbing suspension parts. It looks like I got a good inch gap from the tire to strut/spring assembly. Just unsure about the fronts.

It should be fine if you don't plan on running a drop more than trhe eibach or H&R at the most. Any more that that and i can see rubbing the fenderlip being a problem during any spirited driving or hitting large bumps. I have 225/40zr18's with a 42 offset and i have about 2mm of fenderlip I am getting my body guy to grind down.

See I am at a 40mm offset so I get a little more clearence. I dont mind rubbing fender cause I can easily roll it. Yeah I am on a DZ spring drop but once I go coils I actually wanna raise the front a tad due to scraping the front bumper.

IMO, 235 is gonna be too wide. Somebody tried putting 235's on and they rubbed baddddd. Nothing some fender rolling would take care of. I am on 225/40 18's and Velox wheels. Ther is almost noooo room at the fender at tire. There is no rubbing, but just rolling will not take care of ur tire if you go to a 235. You would potentially have to cut that lip off all together that tucked underneath in the wheel well and push it out a little.

I'm on 225/40/18's and there's about an inch left on the rear and 1.5 in the front with Eibach prokit=no rubbing.

I am rolling on 17's not 18's so I dont think it will be a problem.
