Tire/Wheel Sizing

I'm guessing this might have been answered before, but I couldn't find a definitive answer searching. I picked up some TSW NURBURGRING 17x8 40 offset wheels for track use. I'm looking to get some new tires for them, and I'd like know if I'd be able to fit 245/40R17 without rubbing issues. Has anyone here tired a similar setup?

Probably be pretty tight, especially if the car is lowered.

Best thing to do would be mount a single tire and check fitment.

Even my 215 stockers hit the fender liners om occasion.

Yeah that's what I figured. The wheel seems to fit fine, but I guess I'll just have to get a tire mounted and see.

Odd that you've had rubbing with the stock 215s, I can't say I've had any and I'm lowered with some YYZ springs.

It happened when I tracked the car on Teins.

I doubt it'll happen with the YYZs.
