Yes, I'm getting Lexion 203 by Ray's Engineering in diamond cut finish. 19x9 in front and 19x10 for the rear. The front tires will be stretched with 235/35s but that's what Mackin reccommends. So I'm going with what's suggested.
Mackin Industries said they will not rub. I'm not a wheel/tire expert so I left it to the pros. They have run this setup before on a lowered 2IS and the owner reported no rubbing. These were my tire choices in 235/35 and 275/30 - Bridgetone Pole Position, Michellin PS2, or Goodyear F1. Mackin said those tires have thicker sidewalls and they will rub. They suggested Falken 452s. So that's what I'm going with. Regardless of what they say, I'm prepared to mod so there is no rubbing.
One question, with an offset of 45 for the front, someone told me the lip will be bigger. I thought it would've been the other way around. Any comments?
After checking what size of wheel and offset other members have on their ISX50, it seems like most people have 19x8.5 with between +35 and 38 offset in the front. Now, I was wondering if I go with 19x8.5 with +45 offset in the front, would it make the wheel staying to close to the body? meaning inner side? or would it stick out of the fender line?
I have gone to many different web sites that have wheel size and offset guide, but I do not seem to understand it correctly at all.
The reason I'm asking this is because, the rims I am looking to buy has 19x8.5 with 45 offset, but if they will stay too close to the inner body, I was thinking to run 5 mm spacer, which will make it still out 5 mm out to outer side so that it will make the wheel offset as 40mm, which should not rub?
