If they are for the 240 the usual thing is to get 25mm adapters up front and 32mm in the rear if your tire is a 225 or less.


If the wheel is for the 850 or C70 then forget about it.

25mm all around fit the best. Slightly thicker in the back looks better but sometimes can cause a little rubbing on stock fenders and increase the tendency to understeer. Roll the rears or use a big hammer/mallet to make room for the larger spacers. If you are using 215/45 or so tires, you probably won't have any rubbing. I guess it depends on how low you go as well.

For what it's worth, I'm running 225/45 tires on what would effectively be ET10.5 in the back(49mm offset wheels with 38.5mm adapters) but have had some decent pushing done with RSI's fender roller. I have no rubbing what so ever, even when loaded heavily.

About the same on mine, though I'm using 25's in the rear (because the 25's wouldn't clear the coilovers in front). No rubbing, no issues whatsoever other than a slight tendency to oversteer (but I attribute that to the 25mm rear bar and nearly bald 400 treadwear tires). I want 32's or maybe 40's in the back but I haven't done much lip massaging at all as of yet.
