Yeah I was looking for a 235/40 but the tires I were looking at didn't come in that size for 17" and I'm not sure if 245/40 would fit or rub if I go a little lower.
235 isn't the most common width many manufacturers don't offer anything in that width or offer limited sizes. I'm running a 235 tire on a 8 inch wide wheel on my wife's car fitment is spot on.

Hey guys I live in a small province so wheels don’t come up often there is a set of 17x9 Rota grids that came up for a decent price what all would I need. I would like 235-245 wide 40 side wall I’ll be going full coil over but not looking to stance out just close the gap a smidge

I think those come in a +42 offset? If so, 235/40 will fit easy. Minor roll or push the tabs in. Shoot depending how low you go you might not even need to touch the fenders ( I would still ) Little camber in the rear ( get camber arms ) /the end

Looks good. Not sure a 35 series falls into the "meaty" category but functional none the less.

I was thinking the width and large diameter would fall into meaty and I noticed there was discussion about tire offset/width discussed.

After reading this thread for a couple of hours I think Im gonna pull the trigger on the 17x9 +40 Konig Hypergrams and run a 245/45. Ive already ordered the H&R springs so everything should fit pretty well. It seems like Subaru's and Hondas are very similar when it comes to fitting wheels and tires. I ran these same wheels on my 2000 2.5RS only I went with the 17x8 and 225/45s. They handled great at the Tail of the Dragon and other mountain roads.

245/45R17 is gonna be pretty meaty for the civic. Those konigs look good.
