Artisan Spirits and AIMGAIN demo cars run 20s and they look fine. Pretty sure they use a 30 ratio tire sidewall

I have also seen 20s on the rubber band sidewalls and I'm not a fan of the look or the function.

Just to clarify, the rims are staggered (19x8.5 and 19x9.5), but they have the same offset? Which is +25?
I have to say I'm curious as to what kind of vehicle they came off of.

To address your question, if you had stock suspension, you could get away with the 19x8.5 +25 on the front. It would possibly stick out a little, but would probably function ok.
The rear you would have definite issues and it would look odd as well.

Rohana RC7
Front: 19x8.5 +35 245/35 Sumitomo HTR ZIII
Rear: 19x9.5 +40 265/30 Sumitomo HTR ZIII

Just barely clears in the rear, but rubs in the front on light/moderate compression. Going to need to roll/pull the front fenders. In hindsight, I really should have just went with 225 in the front.

Nice looking wheel. When I saw the front tire size I was going to ask if it rubs...but you answered that already.
You could likely put a 235 on there and be fine too. Maybe look for one with a narrow tread width...unless you're getting a matching Sumi.

The HTR Z only had 225 and 245 as an option, and I rolled the dice on the 245 fitting. Craps.

I'd rather spend the money on keeping the 245 and rolling the fenders as I'm not a fan of how stretched the 225 looks on a 8.5" wheel. If rolling the fenders gets these to fit, I'll take it.

The wheels came off a genesis coupe.

There's only a minuscule amount you can roll on the front...you may have to try pulling it without breaking the paint.

Cool...must of had a little poke on the rear.
I've noticed some of the Gennies around me like to run like that.

Fingers crossed that it'll be enough. By the looks of it, I just need an extra 2-3mm. Rolling and relocating the tabs should be enough, but if not, I'll see about pulling the fender a bit as well. I'll definitely update once its done.

Hi everyone! Would a square setup 18x8.5 +35 work without any clearance issues with the front F Sport calipers?

Looking to get a set of these Superspeed wheels:

By the numbers the wheels should fit no problem.
However rim design, specifically on the front, will ultimately determine if it clears the big calipers.
The rear won't be an issue at all.

I'm running same front wheel size/offset and tire size and have no rub. I'm on RSR downs.
