Hi everyone! Wow. It's been a while! Glad to see the forums are still as busy as ever. Here are my wheel specs.


SSR Professor MS3s

19x9 +37 front
19x9.5 +30 rear

225/35/19 front
235/35/19 rear

Newly wrapped in Achilles 2233s.

Been busy. Vehicle was in major accident February 2013. Just got fixed and revitalized.

Are your rears pulled? It looks like there is a slight lip on there

Keep me posted. I have a set of Work XT-7 18x9.5+38 5x100 sitting at my home now. I am selling it as it might be too much trouble to fit it in.

^x2! Agreed! They will fit, go with a slight tire stetch and you'll be good

I wouldn't go that far to say its easy. Deff need a roll, and a 215 tire plus camber to not rub on OEM front fenders.

I am going with 235/40-18 on my 18x9.5 +38. I have camber bolts and the Eastwood fender roller is arriving today I will most likely be doing a slight pull in the front to clear the tires I want to run.

I got a chance to roll the rears, and I put enough pressure on the quarter panels with some heat in order to push them out slowly. There is a bunch more clearance now, and the x9.5 +38 should fit fine even with the 235mm tire.

Here is a quick pic


Did not get to the fronts. Will have to wait until another day for that. And my wheels still aren't even here anyway, hopefully I'll have them by next week!

Finally got them! Can't wait to get the tires mounted on wed then try these things out with the camber bolts up front. I'll see how much clearance I have with just the bolts.

On a side note, my front fender paint is cracked and I don't know how the hell it happened, so if I attempt to pull it will crack and need a repaint anyway. So maybe ill just go ahead and pull and not care about paint, I can do my own filler work and prime wet sand etc. just have my guy blend everything perfectly after. I need to get my full Artisan spirits lip kit painted as well, so ill just get that all done at once.

On to some quick pics. I hope I can pry them from my girls arm in Order to put them on lol (she couldn't care less about cars, I made her sit with the wheel lol)

Nice!!! I love work wheels. I had work meisters before I settled with my BBS's

Waiting to see mounted pics.

Oh btw, did you use a heat gun when you were rolling? Makes me want to get mine done professionally even though I have an eastwood in my garage.

AND to other guys out there that are interested in upgraded wheels, please do yourselves a favor and buy quality authentic/forged wheels.

I don't understand the logic of going with cheap, replica, cast wheels...in reality its a downgrade from your factory wheels
