    WTB - One 17x8.25 EVOII Wheel --- any cosmetic condition

    Hi,

    I am looking to purchase one 17x8.25 EVOII wheel ---- in order to use a spare on my car. My car has silver arrow brakes so the stock 16" wheel as a spare won't fit.

    I'd like to use a 17" EVOII wheel as a spare.

    The cosmetic condition can be not-great, but I'd like it to be un-vent.

    Thanks.

    might I submit you just take a good one off the rear and move it to the front and place the 16 on the back. PITA but gets the job done.

    Thanks. I thought about that as well --- but I'm running a staggered set up --- the rears are 18"x9.5" ET+28 with a 275 section width tire on there. That ain't gonna fit the front wheel wells ----- right?

    [Forgot to mention ---- I have 18" NEEZ wheels on the car --- they look like the EVO II wheels but are 1" larger in diameter. Also NLA. Hence I am looking for an EVO II wheel as a spare]

    Ooooo. Good question. The front fenders can swallow amazingly large wheel/tire combos. I think it may clear, barely, at least for emergency purposes to drive home. Might be worth testing out, now that Evos are getting scarce (at least in nice shape).

    EDIT: From my previous notes...

    "The rear C219 wheel (18x9.5 ET28) should clear the strut tube up front with a little room to spare. However, the stock 285 tire rubs on the strut. It looks like a thin (3-5mm) spacer would make it clear, or a 275 tire miiiiight work, and a 265 tire should be ok. I am not sure what clearance issues may occur at the fender with this wheel/tire combo. I don't have a loose wheel (without tire) to measure the exact clearance to the strut with a bare wheel."
