you'd probably have to roll your fenders. or you might be able to pull it off with a stretched tire.. like a 195/35/19. i'd recommend that you just go with the 23535/19 and rolled your fenders if you need to. chances are that you will only have to shave the fender lip.. maybe someone with this exact setup can chime in on this one

My Toyo T1S do the trick as well.

I got lucky with my setup, it was originally fitted for an SC430. But it didn't fit without major headaches. But I love the deep dish.

CL Member Name: Jc4dint
Rim Brand and Type: DTM Kreuz 16 spoke 3 Pc
Rim Size f/r: 20 x 10.5 : 20 x 11.5
Rim Offset f/r: ??? but it clears big brakes.
Tire Size f/r: 245 / 275 stretched = curb rash
Suspension Setup: Tein Basic 3 in. drop & 1.8 neg camber(r)
Comment On Ride: stiff but bearable
Fender Modifications: Rolled and pulled out probably a half inch. Removed linings, washer reservoir & relocated wiring.
Any other comments: Hard to peel out, PITA to clean, but when it's clean, yumm.
Picture: The pics below are before I pulled the fenders, they're just rolled then.

** So if anybody is going to drop their car to where it would hit the top of the front fender. There are wiring underneath that needs to be relocated and a piece of steel that needs to be trimmed.

I simply pulled and zip tied mine out of the way. The piece of metal that protrudes, I trimmed 2 of the 3 layers of metal and pounded the third flush with the fender. **

They would look pushed in cause stock offset is 50, my friend has an 35offset wheel on his and it still looks pushed in.

Based on the fitment of the other wheels on this topic you should know it will look like a total pile of crap.

Default Needing a bit of help here....

I didn't see this one covered so i'll ask away.

I am planning on 19x9.5 and 19x10.5 Volk SF Challenge. I have a SC300 so just trying to figure out the maximum amount of lip i can get. I am fine with rolling the fenders. I have seen the charts but here's the catch....I plan to also upgrade my brakes to Supra TT units front and rear.

Any help i can get would be greatly appreciated as i am ready to buy now and they are waiting on me for offsets since i'm so **** about it lol.
