How about if i went with Enkei Raijins, i was thinking 18x8.5 +35 front and 18x9.5+ 15 rear. Would that fit? What size tires would i need?

Fronts will fit with a roll and will leave you with room to get a spacer if you need it for LS brake upgrades. The rear will fit very similar to the other wheels you asked except they'll be sunken in by 5mm. You'll still need a roll and some minor camber (-1.2 to -1.5)

Ok cool. Will 245 (front) and 255's (rear) fit with a roll and that slight camber? The car will be on Tien Flex-Z coilovers. Would i be better off running a +35 in the rear?

It really depends on what your using your car for, how low your car is going to be, and what brand of tire your going to use. It'll fit if your car isn't slammed and the roll is done perfectly flat.

It'll be a drivers car, not planning on slamming it too far, just going with the preset height from Tein, believe it's around 1.75-2" drop or so. I'd like the top of the tire flush with the fender

I am looking to swap over some wheels from my 300zx to my stock '99 sc300. Volk GTM 18x9 w/38 offset in the front on 245/40 and 18x10 w/42 offset in the rear on 285/35. From reading through this thread, appears that they should fit well.

Ok just picked up another SC400 a 95 with 131000 on the dail. My 93 400 has about 270000 on her now and time do do timing on her.

Got the 95 for great deal she runs great but has the biggest rims on a SC i seen and hate it, 22's.

I looking to run some 19" and found the style i want. So what would be best. Here what available. I would like to have it as close to even with the finder as possible with having to roll and/or shave if possible. I plan to do very moderate drop with a set of stock Supra spring for now.

If guys recommend which of the following would be best and tire size.

19x8.5 Front
19x9.5 Rear
+32 offset

Or

Same size with a +40 offset

Thanks for all the help in advance.

Default would these fit?

My SC300 has the factory 15" and I found a set of replica LFA wheels in 19x8.5, 38mm offset, 19x9.5, 45mm offset. 235/35-19 FR and 265/35-17 RR
Car is bone stock and probably needs new shocks all around. Just wasn't sure if the tire/wheel combo would fit with minimal/no mods.
Other option is to go with a set of 2013 GS350, 18x8, 45mm offset, so I can rotate. This is my daily driver, keeping it stock and simple/close to OE.
Thanks for the advise.

They will fit with those specs. Might look weird at stock height though..... "Replicas" implies a lower cost so just make sure the alloy and build of the wheels is safe..... Pictures before and after will help too.....

one of the wheels has a repaired crack. seller says it holds air, but that's making me a bit gunshy. otherwise, they look decent and they're a solid improvement over the factory 15"s.
