Default 17x9 +22 F and 17x10 +45 R??

Trying to figure out if its possible to run the CE28n 17x9 +22 up front with a rear 17x10+45. If so, what is necessary to make it work??

Note: I have DF front EVS fenders and currently have a set of 17x10+45 Ce28n square setup. I'm trying to find a ce28 wheel setup that will clear a bbk and still have a concave face.

Personally, I just don't really care for the convex faces on Ce28's.

I think that front spec is really going to be pushing it. I have 17x9 +43 in front with downforce as my street setup and while there is plenty of space I am not sure I could move that wheel 20+mm further out and not cause issues.

Trust me, I don't want to go that route, but I just don't see any other options if I stick to CE's. I can't find any other concave ce28 spec in between 17x9 +22 and 17x10+45 that's bbk friendly?!? Is there maybe an 18" spec that's concave and bbk friendly and not a +15 or 18??

I wonder why Rays never developed a 17" CE28 that's bbk friendly, concave and doesn't have an extremely aggressive offset??? Maybe Evasive can make it happened! I mean they figured out a way to get a production of those 17" TE's in 17x9.5 +41, which I considered but I really prefer CE's over TE's any day.

Don't want to loose the concave look...

Concave wheel faces and BBK clearance are mutually exclusive specifications unless you're running ridiculous offsets.

Pretty much every functional sports car engineered with brakes that are actually up to snuff for track use has flat faced front wheels - see GT3 RS / GT2 RS / 488 Pista / Ford GT / AMG GTR.

If you absolutely must run concave and want BBK fitment, I'd venture to say that you need to run the Circuit Garage style front fenders, or completely flare the OEM fenders flat, such that your remove the body lines.

Agreed. And typically its a look I like, distinguishing the front from the back on a RWD car. This isn't an AWD Subaru. Its the same thing on my Rpf1 and BBK.

OP, that said, a J's front fender would also likely give you the room. Possible Spoon as well.

There is the 17x10 +44 that is BBK friendly? Though there is a post from evasive saying those are discontinued.... There is a used set for sale in the classifieds.

Thanks for the input guys! My initial intensions were to retain the "concave" look upfront without doing anything too drastic to the body of the car. I defintiely don't ever want to cut my quarter panels to fit larger wheels. I considered sourcing a pair of the 17x10 +44 offset for upfront, which seems to be the best option if I stick with CEs. I'll have to update this thread when I finally pull the trigger on what I end up with. lol

Thanks again!

I ran 9+29 fronts with 235's on downforce fenders. If you want to run rubberband tires (215-225) you can probably make a 9+22 work

9.5+47? isn't L3 face but is slightly concave.

also looks like it might be safer to 9.5+35 and run spacers to clear BBKs like all the dudes with spoon bbks in the official CE28N forum
