oooh, i know this is a dumb question but offset is just how much it sitcks out right??? i am not to familar how wheels work
The offset indicates the distance from the center of the rim to the attaching disk part (unit:m/m). As seen in the attached drawing, the offset is indicated by "+" when the fitting surface extends beyond the central line of the rim and "-" when it is falls within. Caution is required to prevent the tire from coming into contact with the fender of the vehicle or the brake caliper if the offsets are very different.
+27 Front and +29 Rear are about the maximum the IS can handle in the widths you described. Even then, you will have to stretch some pretty small tires on there to make them work.
I measured and measured and used lazer alignment tools to decide the offsets on my IS, taking into account I wanted real world tires that could handle potholes and speedbumps, etc. The maximum offset I could get was +30 front and +35 rear. Of course I also didnt want to roll fenders. I could have gone +30 rear with a fender roll, and a skinnier tire.
im 19x9 +23 and 19x10 +21
-Under Construction (lowest offsets on a 2IS...)
welp i tried it on and its actually not that bad, it just poke out a lit bit, and the front rubs a bit on the fender liner. but now im curious now if i lower my car, will the wheel still hit the fender in back, even if its rolled?
the pic of the white IS with AME wheels have pulled fenders not rolled
he is running Progressive TE 19x9.5 19x10.5 +22 all around now
his set up is not for the faint at heart about tires because he is running 225/35 in front and 235/35 in rear
I was wondering... for those of you who currently own a IS250 AWD that is lowered w/ 19's what springs are you running, offset, and tire sizes. I really want to lower my car and run 19's but I am trying to avoid any rubbing issues. I appreciate any help.
umm... your really gonna need the vip stretch, no big tires, and your gonna have to be dumped, on bags preferably so the camber will tuck in, if not your gonna stick out and that just looks horrible, theres a difference between staggerd and pro street
