I'm in the market for new tires for 17x8 +35 wheels for my HFP setup. I know I can get 225/45/17 and call it a day but I'd like to go wider if I can. Looking at maybe 235/40/17 but the tires I'm looking at only come in 245/40/17 size. Looking at the rear I doubt I can clear 245 without rubbing maybe 235 what do you guys think.
I have 245/40-17 on my 17x9 RPF1's, and I don't rub at all. Not even close. My next set of tires will be 255/40-17.

And yes, I'm on HFP suspension.

I just don't know how you can get away with it. Looking at the rear wheels looks like I can get away with 225 but even 235 looks like there will be fender clearance issues. Do you have a camber kit?

Haha, no sir. Nothing special. Just HFP suspension, 20mm RSB. I had an alignment once right after install. Drives straight as a tack.

There were 2 people I talked to on Facebook that both had 2" drop and both had same wheels and no rolling or pulling of fenders. That's why I went for the + 45 RPF1's. They fit like a glove. And like I said, 245 width is what the others suggested, and I've had no issues with rubbing at all. And that's also considering I corner aggressively and even took a deep pot hole recently pretty slowly and no fitment issues whatsoever. You can trust that I'm super picky about my car.

I'm surprised you don't have strut clearance issues with those wheel specs and wide tires.

Nice. Your going to be really surprised at the difference over stock and how much it changes the way the car feels.

This might sound like a dumb question, I'll ask it anyway, if trying to do this on a budget, would it be possible to buy the rear or front parts of the HFP suspension first? I was looking into the price on hondapartsunlimited and they had decent prices, and I figured that it probably wouldn't hurt to hypothetically do the rear first, since there aren't really a lot of components and you can basically buy the entire assembly through the website. That being said, I don't know if there would be a downside to this, other than the car looking funny until the front got done. Thoughts? (I'm assuming an alignment needs to be done as well after this install?)

I would wait until you can afford to do all 4 corners at once. The HFP kit comes with everything you need unless you are overly concerned about camber. You can get a set of front camber bolts for $40. The rear is a bit more costly in regards to a camber kit.

Again, I would wait until you can do all for corners. An alignment will be needed to confirm all tires are straight as there is little adjustment unless a camber kit is installed.

Hey, check out your order again, I just looked on three different sites for the HFP suspension, I believe you were getting the trim confused with the HPT trim, which is not the HFP. I checked the part number for the front shock absorber, the part number is "51621-TS9-A03" (Left Front), the part number does not change if you back out and switch to a different SI trim, so just be aware of that.

Yes needs conversion bolt to work.

Hello guys,

Do you know if it is possible to install the HFP suspension on the 2012 LX sedan?
I think I need to get the conversion bolt right? Where can i get them?

Thanks
