Thanks Zerodrag, I should have considered MK4 Supra lowering springs. Sc3/400 specific springs run really conservative drops.

Anyone running 1910 F and 1912 R with lower offsets, roll and pull, PBM coilovers?

I'm not looking to go more than 2". Just a little firmer ride and a nice stance. Not going to roll the fenders or add any camber. I'm not about that life.

You would need a big pull in the real. I ran 19x10 +10 and 19x11 +13 and couldn't slam the car without a massive pull in the rear and a crazy tire stretch. My fenders are shaved in the rear and rolled in the front. The front was fine since I was running 225/35/19 tires.

Good luck, hope the bacon fender life isn't gonna happen.

Thanks for the info KiraX, I will probably stick to no more than 11 in the rear then.

The thing is, most springs aren't stiff enough to accommodate a large wheel/tire combination. These cars came with 7.5" wide wheels and 225's stock. Take everyone else's advice and consider going coilovers.

12's are doable in a higher offset, and at 12" wide you'll have plenty of lip even on a high offset wheel.

Yeah, I see that would have been the case. I only asked because wheelflip has some good choices from time to time and I wanted legit wheels with a healthy lip, especially on the rears. Not trying to do overfenders unless it's the full BN Sports Blister aero.

From my experience, the largest lip you can fit in the rear is 3.5" with rolled or shaved fenders + stretch tires and some camber. 4" lip with super low disk face, a pull, stretch, and camber. Anything more than that then you'll need to go widebody.

Appreciate the heads up, I will keep this in mind when acquiring wheels.

Not mine, but on topic:
