Ok so on my 08 sedan I'm planning to drop it on h&r race springs/koni sport yellows. I want to get 16x7 rims with I believe a 40mm offset. Would a 205/45/16 tire fit without rubbing or do I need spacers?

With 40mm offset finding the right/perfect tire is going to be awkward. Spacers will only move the tire and wheel toward the fender lip complicating matters. I'd initially use the stock tire and wheel for a test fit and let that be your guide.

^^^^ I second that. I was running a 235 on a 7.5 in rim with 40 offset and i only rubbed on the really hard hits. Start with what you have a go from there.

Alright thanks guys! Is higher offset better? The offset always confuses me :). What's the offset on the standard 15inch alloys?

U shouldn't need to roll. If u want to try on my gold 16x7 +40 swing by my house and do a test fit[thumb] the 2nd gens have more fender clearance than 2000-07 see how they fit and go from there. Smaller/ taller wider etc. This will give u a good reference point since u can see it right in front of u

Demented you have become my favorite socal focus.....once I get all my various bits together sometime in August I'll have to test fit. Off topic but I should be able to come by this Friday for those sways. Finally get paid this summer :D.

In my various daydreams of today involving my car, I wondered, does anyone make a widebody kit for the second gen?
