I had 17 x 8 ET 17 rotiforms on my clubby and they were fine, sat with the lip of the arch on the wheel.

So it will fit, but you will need a 195/40 tire, camber plates and some mean rear camber

I'm looking to fit some 17x8 et25 but worried they'll poke too much. Think I'll get away with 2deg camber all round?

I wouldn't have thought so. 17x7.5 ET32 has worn the plastic arch down to zero on the front of mine and sometimes clips the metal arch with around -2degs camber. Also depends on your spring rates though, I'm on V1's which wallow around all over the place.

You cant hobo out on fitment like that, youll need a full camber set up front rear (arms and plates).

Im running 18x8.5 - et31 - 1.8 degrees negative camber up front, 18x8.5 - et29 - 2 degrees negative camber on the rear. Tyres are stretched 215/35/18 Falken 452's. Both front and rear rubbed like a mofo. The lips of the wheels poke out, but the tyre is tucked inside the arch. Now the metal has been trimmed back theres no rubbing.
