Would I have to pull rear fenders to put on style 95s rims which are 19x10 +24 with 15mm adapters?

DID you ever get this set up? Searching the threads this is closest thing i found to what I'm trying to run currently. If u have any pics that'd be great.

18x11.5 +43 and 18x11.5 +47

My car has vertex rear over fenders, stock front fenders
Has roll and pull.

Im more concerned if these wheels will interfere with my suspension components without spacers.. stupid high offsets and width.

The rears will be ok with coilovers (some hammering might be involved). I think it could potentially hit a spring and shock combo or air suspension.

I'm not sure about suspension clearance in the front. I can't think of any cars that have wheels that wide in the front. If the wheels are 3 piece, then you could probably find the inner barrels used and swap them out to make a narrower wheel while maintaining the same lip on the outside.

Now that I'm thinking about it... I replaced the 4 lips not the barrels, so I think these will fit on the inside without any problems, they just may poke out a bit in the front.

More importantly, what tire size should I go with on these??

Default Hows this set up?

Trying to figure out if this set up will be a good one. Ive found a craigslist guy selling Euro Mag Wheels ( Any experience with this brand feel free to tell me) and potenza tires from his mustang. He's running 275/40 tires on 19x9.5 +40 Em10 wheels all the way around. Will this be sunken in
? and if so what spacer would I need for a flushed look my car will be lowered 2-3inches soon so if there would any interference with suspension components please let me know but I truly doubt there would. If anyones got any similar set ups post pics please. Haven't found this exact set up yet in the forums but still looking.

The inner clearance doesn't change at all unless you milled the backing down.

Your offsets are still very conservative for a wide body car. I think your wheels might even fit a stock body car with rolled fenders, stretched tires, and some camber. It's hard to say what size tire to run since I've never tried working with a 11.5. I would need to see the car and do measurements for myself before deciding. If I had to guess I would say start around a 255 or 265 width in the front and as wide as you want in the rear.

Quick question guys.

SC400

Front: 18x9 ET20 with 225/40/18
Rear: 18x10 ET38 with 255/35/18

Will they fit without having to roll the arches?
I'm on slight drop on coilovers.

Thanks

If I could even locate a spacer that would make this work, I still wouldn't run it. You may be able to fit the front flush, but not the rears. I'd find wider wheels with lower offsets to be safe.
