Wait, I'm confused.The 9's were out there but not quite exactly where I want it to be. I'm not going to be running spacers since I really fear of using them but with the right tire size, it'll look perfect. Especially once I buy the oem aero kit.
Luckily ill get my coilovers for free haha.
After about a month or so of daily driven and somewhat spirited driving on the tanabe coilovers, ill write my review on them.
Or maybe you are. LOL
The RPF1s you had were 9in wide and already poked, correct?
Poke is when the rim of the wheel sticks out past the fender.
You said you want to be more flush, but then said the rim wasn't out there enough.
If you want to be flush you need less width or a higher offset. Since you were rocking +45 you can't really go much higher.
That being said, if you go 9.5 you will be in the same exact boat except stick out almost half an inch MORE. If you go any lower offset you will be going even further out.
But here is where I may be confused. You did say the rim wasn't out there enough at one point so maybe you do want them to poke. In that case then 9.5 would definitely do it. 9.5 with a lower offset and they'll poke like crazy.
Not my cup of tea but to each their own.
I assume you mean you wanted to be more flush, meaning you need to lose some width. 8.5 may not be flush but with a lower than 40 offset or some spacers you'll get there. 9.5 you will NOT get flush unless you plan on running some of dat oni camber son.
