I'd hazard a guess that an 35 offset is just too low for the 6, even with 17's.

I don't suppose 245/45/16's on a 50mm+offset Rx7FD wheel will give me any problems? Or will i need to roll my fenders?

That's too small of a tire. 245/50R16 would be better, as long as the wheel is at least 7 inches wide. But it's probably going to rub on either the fender or suspension.

Nice list.


225/45/18 also seems to not fit in the rear (according to a recent thread), though 225/40/18 fits rather easily. Those examples are all on +48mm offset wheels, an otherwise very usable offset. I&#39;m sure there are many other sizes on the &#39;omit&#39; list too.

Are you lowered? What type of tyres (R-comp/street?)? Regardless, I&#39;m not 100% sure, but I believe you will rub if you&#39;re lowered, and most more than likely not if you&#39;re not lowered - although it will look kind of funny... (Big car, tiny rims, huge fender gap).

Yes, the stock lugs will fit.
