8-10mm front spacers to clear the struts. Could run 205/40 front 215/40 rear at that point.

Will this require a fender roll or pull?

Is there an offset that i wont have to use spacers on the front in a 17x9?

Probly run 205/40s all around unless theres a reason not to

Roll if you're low. +20 - (8-10mm) = +10 to +12. No reason not to.

Rent a roller and ship it in. Substitutes don't cut it.

I just called the shop and he may have the same wheels so 17x9 but a +10 offset. Will this work all the way around? I dont want a bigger lip in the front than the back.

i did some work by myself, the tires that i figured out would be:

Front: 16x7.5 / 205-45
Rear: 16x9 / 235-40

would this be possible?

the last thing that i need to know then is the offset/spacers, I want to have my rims/tires in line with fender.

I got my rear wheels mounted (17x9 +20) and they fit fine. I have 8mm spacers for the front i just need to know what length lug bolts i need. I just ordered 35mm thread length so im hopin those are the right ones. Thanks

17x8 with 0 offset

Will a set of 17x8 at 0 offset fit on the front of an E30 with some minor fender work? What kind of tires would you need?
