I found a set of awesome wheels from japan but they are a little more aggressive than I want. Can anyone confirm that I will be able to clear 17x8 +35 with 215/50R17 tire without fender rolling? I plan to put a set of General Altimax Arctic winter tires on them. I also have Eibach Pro-kit lowering springs on.

Being lowered you will probably need to roll the fenders as they will stick out almost an inch more than stock 16" rims. If you weren't lowered you could probably pull it off without rubbing. This tool is really useful all you have to do is put information in for stock then build and it will tell you the differences.

Take a ruler and measure out an inch from your tire near the fender right now and you will have a pretty good idea! Hope it helps.

I'm actually getting 17x8 +35 rims next year, and have done some research.... 17x8 +35 will look super flush. the fronts will stick out slightly past the fender... You will need a little bit of negative camber. The rear should be really flush. I'm going with 235/45/17 tires, but I am planning on rolling the rear fenders. Because you are going with 215s, you might.... might get away without having to roll the fenders. But I can't confirm. I searched around and there isn't too much people running that offset and 8 inch wide rims. But from the few that I have seen, one of them was 18x8 +35 and they did have to rolled the fenders in the rear, but I believe they were on 225s... that's all I really kind of know lol. Hope this helps a little:/

Did you ever get these wheels by any chance? I want to know if you rolled your fenders and if you had to get negative camber...

Or if someone else knows this question... please help me out:/
