Hey Guys. I know there are a few threads across the board regarding the SSR type-F's and concerns over fitting issues, so I wanted to start a new thread with some new info
I just spoke with Tanabe and ordered my type-f's. specs:
In flat black (additional $100 per wheel, but 16x7 already comes in flat black , so no additional charge for that pair).
Tanabe just received news from SSR japan that they now offer a 17x8 +35, which I believe is perfect and flexible enough for those who want to run a 245/40/17 and a 255/40/17 (available in yokohama A048's). I believe the 255's are $75 each tire cheaper than the 245's on tirerack.com
SSR still offers the 17x9 +25, but I believe the limit on the rears is probably 17x9 +30.
Here's a picture of Mat's car with Toybox48 Hethels in what I believe are 17x9 +35 ( they only make +22 and +35 for the rear) with a 5mm spacer.
SSR also offers a 17x7.5 +35 4x100, which Tanabe actually has in stock right now in their USA offices. That's pretty much an oem wheel size for the rear or possibly an option for the front if you want to run 17's.
Right now, SSR Japan has 17x8 +35 in stock. They just need to be shipped over, which will take a few months. The catch is they only come in titan silver. they can paint to any color (if they offer that color for their other wheels) for an additional $100 per wheel.
16x7's come in flat black as well, so no additional charge if you are looking for flat black.
Good luck. These will be bad ass
