The Slammed / Aggressive **WHEEL FITMENT** thread

The intended purpose of this thread is EXTREMELY SIMPLE. More and more people are beginning to ask questions regarding aggressive wheel fitment and whatnot, so I believe that a thread specifically dedicated to answering those questions would greatly benefit everyone on this site.

Here is how it works!


You have a wheel fitment question that falls under one of these three categories:

A.) Semi-aggressive
B.) Aggressive
C.) Crazy-aggressive

**I don't want plain-Jane wheel fitment questions, there is a thread already dedicated to that**
See: Guide: Wheel fitment. Will these wheel fit? What offset do I need?


BEFORE YOU POST, you must understand that you're at least *LOOKING* for an aggressive wheel setup and have a general concept of what look you're trying to achieve (see above options: A,B, or C). Don't just ask for "suggestions" on aggressive setups, because I won't give you any! Do the searching yourself and find out what YOU like!

HOW TO POST:

1.) Post your intended look: A, B, or C
2.) Post the wheel specs (IE: 18x9+35)
3.) Post your willingness to do body modifications (IE: roll fenders, trim liners, pull fenders, etc.)
4.) Post any questions


It's as simple as that!

My thanks go out to the Moderator who stickied this thread


**To the other members participating in this thread, here are the rules:**

1.) Be polite!
2.) If you have nothing positive to say, don't post.
3.) Try to be thoughtful of others and their knowledge of wheel fitment
4.) If a member clearly knows very little, kindly steer them in the right direction (please)
5.) Keep bandwagoning at a minimum
6.) No B/S! This is not the PL.


I will always do my best to follow these rules as well! However, I also understand that sometimes a bad day might manipulate your level of patience (and it's completely understandable). Simply try to remain on a positive note.

Thanks!

Pulled the rear fenders with a fender roller, They start off Rolled flat then you keep rolling and pulling it outward to get the fit. Then it was taken to a body shop so that the fenders could be processed the way they are now.

This look can be pulled off with minor fender work yet your going to need to stretch a tire smaller then 245. I wanted to have some tire on the wheel so i pulled more.

Front Fenders are Vertex Aero which come +15mm extended more then a factory fender.

WORK EMOTION CRKAI
Front- 18x8.5 +25 215/40
Rear- 18x9.5 +20 245/40

This is before the body shop.



This is after




Volk TE37
18x9.5 +27 235/40 All around






Enkei NTO3
18x9.5 265/35



This was another test fit to see what would work out.
Evo Regamasters
17x9 +18 225/40




Putting stickers on fake wheels to pass them off is the same as a girl rocking a fake Gucci or a Lamborghini kit car or some fake Jordan's. If you can't afford to play then rock the lower end brands and stop playing yourself.

I want to offer a counterpoint to the IMO - fake aggressive fitments, and post a real functionally aggressive fitment. This is the difference between having fitments that detract from cars drivability vs something that adds tremendous handling and traction. This is a no compromise daily driver that is expected to have realistic tire wear, usability, and performance. Also, lowering the car affects suspension geometry and travel negatively. Steps need to be taken to ensure performance is not lost and proper alignment can be maintained.

Front- 18x9 +38 255/35
Rear- 18x10.5 +48* 265/35 Room for 295/30's for future.

All fenders are slightly rolled and pulled.
*Additionally, the rear coilover upper mounting points were modified and set inboard by 1/4" to increase clearance. Under very hard cornering, the rear wheels will just touch the rear coilover spring. If you don't intend to run as aggressive tires, or don't mind a very pulled fender, you can and should go lower in offset or narrower wheel.





Supporting Mods:
Rear Upper Coilover mount relocation for aggressive inboard clearance needs

Rear Toe Control Arm relocation to avoid rear toe steer from being slammed

Increased front suspension travel to support being slammed and maintain handling

Shortened, boxed, and TRD bushed rear lower arms to bring camber back inline
See picture AAR arms in picture above
Lightened and stiffened suspension via GS400 AL arms, Megan Toe Arm, TRD bushings

Ok trying to nail out the final details of the new setup.

Looking for an Aggressive fitment; here are the specs:

Front:
18x9 +20

Rear:
18x10 +20

I have a Front and Rear Rotora BBK (6 piston fronts and 4 piston rears). As well my rear fender lips have been trimmed down to the edge. I don't have any issues with getting working on the fender liners and am willing to do what I need to get this project going. I am on coils and am dropped pretty low as well.

My last issue is I would like to have a little meat on the rears. Stretching a 225 on a 10 is not what I'm looking to do. If a 255 was possible I'd be happy. I'm currently on a 19x10 with a 275 tire.

^^^ i had 245/40 on my 18x10 +22 in the rear and the tire would hit the rear bumper tab.
for the front i tried a 225/40 and it rubbed too.
I RECOMMEND front 18x9 215/35 rear 18x10 235/40

i have 18x9 +24 215/40 and it rubs at my height. 18x10 +22 235/40 no rubbing
with equal stretch front & back
