Evo wheels for 9th gen

Hi guys, I have the oportunity to buy set of refurbished Enkei 17x8 ET +35 wheels, but I cant try them on. Does anybody know what ET is the maximum possible for the fitting without spacers? Or is here anybody driving 9th gen with 17x8 rims?? thanks for your help

Looks like they fit properly

I have done some basic fittings during the buy and it looks like there wont be any problem on a stock height, maybe not even on the lowered springs (next stage of modding) Although you need mitsu evo8 or toyota mag type lug nuts and Im figuring out they are not very common in the nearby eshops. Iīll post more when I fit them on the car.

so they are on - 17x8 looks like the right choice, it has given the 225 tires very nice stretch. Only problem was to find lug nuts in czech and slovak eshops.

Good find. Looks great!
Maybe get them coated in a fun color?

They looks just as good on your 9th gen as they did on my crz and my old cl9 accord type s. Evo 8 wheels really do suit loads of cars.

Be sure to use the proper flat seat wheel nuts as pictured above.
