Default Tire Rack- Looking at your 17" RPF1s

I'm looking at TR website. I'm trying to buy 17" RPF1s with some Extreme Summer tires (like RS3s) to be used for my road racing SC300. I have Supra TT brakes all around. From your site, and using a Supra TT as the fitment car, the results were

17x8 +45 fronts
17x9.5 +38 rears

I've been advised at supraforums to use a +35 up front. I would like to run 245/265 front/rear tires. Can I special order SBC through TR? Any other suggestions of maybe wider front widths to fit stock fenders? I'm lowered on Eibach springs/Tokico Blues

EDIT: Looks like RS3s are not available wider than 255 for 17" wheels

Thanks
Jeremy

The 255/40 is the biggest in 17" for Hankook RS-3. The RPF1 wheel fits both your SC300 and the Supra Turbo using the same part #'s so if you're using Supra Turbo calipers it seems like it should be a fine fit. Now as far as the finish, I can order the SBC finish but the wait could be quite a while. Enkei consistently manufactures silver and black but needs a very large minimum order to make a production run of the SBC finish, so we would need a large number customers wanting the SBC finish in order to place an order with Enkei for SBC finish.
