Default 17x10.5 torq thrust m guys come in

I have 17x9 wheels on the back of my car now but want to put 17x10.5's on the back. Was looking to order them from summit or somewhere if i could find them cheaper. But would these work.

Size: 17'' x 10.5''
Bolt Pattern: 5 x 4.75"
Rear Spacing: 7.5"
Offset: 44mm

I will probably run 315/35/17 nittos on them
And will probably run strano lowering springs too.

Will the tires rub anywhere with this setup? I really dont want to do the bfh mod or roll the fenders if at all possible.

Anyone had any experience with this setup? Thanks!

depends man, you will just have to test fit. more than likely depending on how much drop you will have to do some hammering

Just get a adjustable PHB and re-center the rear after lowering, any rubbing that you might have would most likely be on the fender lips.

315's lowered recommend adj. panhard bar and some slight hammering on the inner fender well. I had to do this with my sumitomo tires.

fenders probably wont need touching. you may need the bgh just for a wack or two i did it even tho i barely had any rubbing but it made me happy.

i'm running 315/35/17 nitto NT-05s front (with a 10mm spacer) and back with Strano/bilsteins. no fender rolling or hammering at all.

it does not rub at all unless i'm at full lock, then the fronts bearly rub the fender liners in the front. no rubbing under cornering at all. i auto-x the car so it is definitely getting thrown into corners hard.

^^^Sounds like a tight fit up front did have to get longer studs?

UPDATE to my previous post. I replaced the Nitto NT555R with NT05R 315/35R17. The car is lowered as I mentioned before (Strano Springs, 1.2 inch lower than OEM). Still no tire to fender contact.
