Couple other sets....

Set #1
17x8 +45 front
17x9 +45 rear

Set #2
17x8 +45 front
17x9 +52 rear

Only reason I ask is because I love the wheels and can get an amazing deal on them.

I'm trying to fit an LS400 front caliper into a 92 SC400. In order to fit the caliper I need to push the wheel out .75 inch or 20mm.

Here's my question, I have 245/35/19 on 8.5 wheel with 40+ offset. If I add 20mm spacers I think it will rub. If i shave the front fenders, I'm not sure if it will still rub.

Just would like to know your input on these.

Here's the picture of the front wheel. Sorry it's hard to tell from the picture itself.

you could use a smaller sidewall and it should make it work better with the 20mm spacer.

Sidewall means tires right? Duh... Yeah that's what I'm thinking.

What tire size do you recommend, without the stretch look or the outer lip showing?

Thanks for the input Black_SC.

If you just roll your fender or shave it witch ever one you want to do you should be fine even with the tire you have right now. Or if you want get the 235/35.

Ah, I will try to roll or shave it first. Should I lose the metal that holds the inner splash guard?

Okay I bought some rims (havent picked them up yet) but I got a STEAL for them. Only problem is the front isnt that aggressive. What size spacer will make the front have the same stance as the rear?

SSR SP1's
18x8.5 +37
18x10.5 +30

I was thinking 15mm spacer, what do you think?

I'm getting 20mm for mine. You should measure the front gap first and decide which size of spacers you should get. Don't forget to get hubcentric.

I rolled mine and kept it to hold up that splash guard.

That would be nice it wont be the same as the rear, but it will still look good.

How did you roll the front fenders? Did you use a hammer or a steel tube?

Anyone got any answers? Could I go more agressive? I can go +25, +20, or +12 with the offsets. If I can get a fender roller, I'd be willing to roll the fenders a lil.
