Do the rota rb 17x9 -13 hit the standard strut on a 240z? If so what offset / size do i need to fill out my zg flares in the rota rbx range?

I ordered a set of rota rbx from rota australia today.. There is going to be a 6 week wait so its lucky i am in no hurry

Has any one run 17x 9.5 -19 on the front of a 240z and is it recommended.\
The reason i ask is that they have plenty of the 9.5 in stock so i could have a full set or wait 3 months for the 17x9 -13

I don't know whether the 9.5 (-19) will fit the front. We can try it out next weekend with my 16x9.5 wats if you like however I have never seen anyone run 9.5 wheels all round.
The concern is also that it may look a little odd. The rear flare is wider than the front and aesthetically it makes more sense for the rear wheel to be wider than the front. If you go 9.5's all round and then are not happy, it will cost more $$$ to fix.

SSR Formula Mesh 9.5" -33 205/60/15
i much prefer the 205/60, less stretch fatter tyre.
having said that id rather have no stretch than stretch.
ps. rear scrubs alot. guards are rolled. king springs.
getting them cut up at welded soon to fix it.

Do tyre places look at you funny when you ask for stretched fit? In other words, do you need to hunt around and find someone that does it? I'm not a huge fan of hipari but it seems necessary for some rim sizes.
Can I also deduct from those photos and comments that a 9.5" rim won't fit ideally withouy cutting the wheel arches? I don't really want to cut up body work if I don't have to, but if I do go down the flares path I do want to fill them out properly.

Either cut or go 8" - 8.5" max.
And it depends on the tyre shop - somewhere like K-Mart Tyre and auto wont do stretches.
