you dont have to use those tire sizes since out wheels are different.

heres my setup:

19x8.5 +24 245/35
19x10 +24 275/35

rolled fenders all around...

i plan on going with smaller tires next time around since ill probably have coilovers by then and will be going lower...



here are some pics to try and show how flush it is...

it does help. For a drop I'm probably just going to use Espilir springs and a good shock setup and rock that for awhile.

Thanks again.

I am at stock hight right now. I am about to go lower.

I have:

19x8.5 +6 tire 235 35
19x9.5 +2 tire 275 30 Rubs during hard turns and with more than one person in the car

as it is right now there is no way for me to drop the car. the rear is past the fender.

The front I am not too worried about becuase I plan on gett widder fenders. I am worried about wearer or not with the wider fenders will make the wheels look sunken.

As for the back I could go with a smaller spacer. 20mm instead of 30mm. which would make the offset +12.

Is 19x9.5 +2 too crazy to do anything to make them fit?
I would like to do a pull, stretched tire 255ish?, maybe very slight negative caber(i would like to avoid tear issues.)

OR do i need to do all this and go to the smaller spacers.

got any pics?

id say a pull would be necessary along with the smaller tire and camber.

Im getting H&R's, hubcentric. What offsets are you getting?

I know it wont be the same, but im looking for it being close.

I haven't received my rims yet, but they have been paid for. I'm just anxious lol.

What will the offsets be if you didn't use a spacer at all. Ideal offset on the sc300/400, 19x9.5 wheel is 40....which sits flush. Anything less sticks out and is too rice imo. Mod the car but it's still a classy car.

+40 does not sit flush.....


technosmurf, once you lower it i believe it would **** pretty flush if you got some camber.
