If i remember correctly that would be fine, but my motegi's are i think +42 and i run 215/45r17 proxes plus 4's amazing tires so far.. love the size as well it fills the wheel well and top of the front tire is still inside the fender but it does give it a more aggressive look from the front IMHO it looks amazing!! and i only rub a little bit taking corners REALLY hard other then that it doesnt at all im guessing the wheels are 4x108/4x4.25

i have focal f01 on mine that are 17x7.5 with a +42 offset. heres how they site. remember the fenders stick out pretty far one the 08-11. not the best pics for seeing offset. but they are just inside the fender on top (closer to edge on front than rear) and due to the way the bottom of the body cuts in they show more in the bottom. still looks great and no issues on h&r spring with a 1.5" drop

oh yeah, i missed the part about tires. i believe that pic of mine was with 215/40 on it. i later switched to a 215/45 and not issues. in fact it actually corrected the offset in my speedo so i now reads spot on.
