For a 215 tire on 17 x 7 you want +30 to +50. Lower will be more flush. Higher can run a spacer to be more flush.

I need help. I am buying my girlfriend wheels and tires for Christmas for her 16 Veloster Turbo. I drive an Evo so I'm pretty unfamiliar with this platform. The wheels I ordered are 18x8.5 +33 and I wanted to run a 245-35 R18 tire but that sounds like it's not going to work. I will be purchasing her some BC coil overs probably next month to go with the wheel and tire setup. No one in this thread seems to be running anything over 225 - 40 R18. Can I fit 235- 40 R18 on these 18x8.5 + 33 wheels with BC coilovers slightly lowered with some maybe -1.0 camber all around or should I stick with 225 -40 R18? Sorry but it seems kind of wasteful to upgrade wheels and run the stock tires 215 40 r18 tires. Thoughts? Suggestions?

16 VT stock tires are 225/40. Running those will be the widest you can fit when lowered and may still require some camber to clear when lowered. If you want to run a wider tire you will need a higher offset wheel to do so. +35 for 225, +40 for 235, +45 for 245, +50 for 255. There is some leeway here by a few mm especially if having some -° camber.

So absolutely don't attempt to run a 235 on the 18x8.5 et 33 wheel setup? Even with camber? sigh, 225 it is. Thank you for the help. I'm guessing you mean 225 40 R18 for full specs?

Can run a 235/40 or shorter but will need to be at OEM height or have -° camber to clear the fenders.

Looking to put 225 35 19 8.5 32 on the front and 235 35 19 or 245 30 19 9.5 40 on the rear, any issues?
Yes you may have clearance issues or ABS or stability control issues if tire sizes are different.
