    Photo below is 18x9.5 +20 on S15 rear. Guards are rolled flat but not flared, camber is zero and tyres are stretched 235/40.

    So fitment depends on how much camber you prefer, I recon anything more then -1.5 is too much, and also how low you want your car to sit. From memory I had to run like -3.0 camber and car was too low for my liking.

    You could stretch a 215/35/18 on a 9.5 easily, this will give you way more clearance, majority of the time clearance issue can be fixed by running a proper stretched fitment tyre, 235/40/18 does not stretched very much on that size rim, as you can see in the pic above.
    It all depends on how far u are willing to push your rim width's and offsets meaning more crazier stretched tyres.

    Or you can just get the correct wheel and tyre combo...stretch is gay...235/40 is as far as id go...we do get wider rims for a function purpose dont we?...lol

    Just a lot of flaring: http://omgpham.com/mystuff/18.jpg

    Yeah it's a pain fitting non-stretch tyres. But checkout the thread below, pretty handy info:

    I've been thinking of getting a new set of rims, was thinking
    17x8 +32 fronts
    17x8.5 +25 rears

    8.5 wide being the widest legal for s15 that i know of as it's still a daily afterall & i like 17s better than 18s but my question is how would this go with coilovers?
    I can't really imagine how it'd even look (ssr type-f) only type f's i've seen on an s15 were 9.5s i think. I've currently got 17x7 +32 fronts and 17x7.5 +32 rears i think (17" 350z enthusiast rims) but most of what i've seen on s15 is 17x9s or 18xwhatever.
    I've tried searching on rimtuck.com but it wouldn't come up with anything, i guess they're not common sizes but tbh i don't want to fork out money for something an officer can easily say "they're too wide" to and not be able to use them. <-- wrote that to help flame proof not getting 9.5 wides +12 offset rims
