I don't suppose you have any intention of making some in 16" to accept stock tyre sizes do you?

No such plans, sorry.

I have stock front fenders.
I like the 17x9 55 option for the front. I don't see how they will fit.
I want to run 245 size with 3degress camber using an adjustable upper arm. Do you think I will have an issue hitting the fender and or liner ?

How about the rear 17x10 with 255 tire and 2 deg camber ? Rear is rolled and tab moved.

Thanks.

We also build a 17x9 +48 , 17.4 lbs for the 2006-2015 Mazda MX5 and many Japanese sedans. This offset on an S2000 tends to rub outboard a bit even with full race camber. More bump steer, rubbing and tire scrub so we generally don’t recommend it. We know the +48 looks cool but they will rub.
What if you have your fenders rolled (and some -ve camber), will the 17x9 +48 rub?

With a roll you would be good, just depends on how lowered you are. You'd need to relocate the tabs on the front probably with a 255 tire.

These look sooo much better than the 6ULR's!

So glad you decided to make these in 17's

Do the 17x10 +52 clear the Stoptech ST40 BBK (328 x 28mm rotor)?

For 17x10+52's to clear Spoon calipers, how thick spacers would I need?
