Default need some varrstoen wheel fitment advice...

So I was just wondering if anyone on here has varrstoen wheel s and if so what fitments.. I was told most wouldn't fit my 2is350 because the wheels won't fit the front caliper

Members are either getting 19x9.5 +12 for the front to clear the is350 calipers or getting 19x9.5 +22 and adding a 5mm spacer to clear the caliper. The rear should be fine whatever offset you get. It's going to take a lot of work to fit Varrstoen's aggressive sizes without a front and rear camber kit while being slammed. I'm trying to fit a 19x9.5 +22 and 19x11 +25 Varrstoen ES1 and i'm having too many issues, so I'm just going to sell them

Which design varrstoen are you looking at?

And what fender work have you done so far? How much work are you willing to do? And how low are you?

What kind off issues?? I'm considering of getting the same ES1 & with the +22 & +25. The +12 & +15 would stick out way to much for me. I've seen the youtube vid for the black is350 on varrstoens

Really depends on how low you are trying to be. I'm trying to tuck the whole tire so maybe that's the reason I'm running into these issues. But the front is rubbing really bad because the tire is rubbing on the actual bumper. I cut the whole bumper tab off and 75% of my fender liner is cut out. Next I have Federal 595 225/35/19's and I can barely turn my wheel before it catches on my fender. I have a roll and pull. I will probably get a 215/35/19 soon. The rears should be fine with a roll and pull with megan camber arms with 245/35/19's. It's all because of my ride height. A lot of members that don't slam their cars with these specs don't have as many problems

edit: I see you bought spc front ball joints and a rear camber kit. You should be golden . Just a roll for your front and rear and cut a little fender liner out and modify your bumper tab should be good.
