Question Is there any complications with putting 17"s on my stock cb7 coupe?

I just purchased some 17x7 rims (the offset might be 40) and tires and wanted to know if there would be any complications as far as fitment . I know they fit as far as lug pattern but is there any issues with wheel clearance or anything of that sort that i might have to look out for maybe wheel spacers control arms or anything like that ?

u shouldnt have any problems with 17' wheels what size are your tires as long as there not too huge. I have 18' wheels on mine w/40 series tires and im lowered with no wheel problems so you should be good

Everybody and their moms runs 17's at one point or another. Cats are running 18's with no problems, some even got 20's. You have nothing to trip on.

Think the only issue would be if you ran really low or negative offset (40 is fine) then you might have some rubbing issue with the fender lip.

17 inch rims are the optimun size as far as the size to weight ratio. Then go with like a 50 series tire so you dont get a rough ride. I have 18's with 215/35 tires and a 55 offset.. Just took them off tho. Stupid potholes!

Good luck

Smokey, what kind of Konigs? The original owner of this site had some 17" Konig Rated Rs on his white EX coupe... looked amazing.


Anyway, on topic... 17 is fine. I've seen up to 19 with no problems. Just make sure the offset is good (40 will work, if that's what it is.) You MIGHT rub when making a very sharp turn, but that will most likely only be on the plastic splash shield under the wheel well... I removed mine.
