I am buying 19" OZ racing anatares with a offset of +40. I was wondering if 225/40/19 and 245/40/19 tires would fit without any modifications to the fenders. I also have stock springs so the car isn't lowered. Could someone please help me out. Thanks

Wondering about some Starform D-type wheels:

Front: 17x8 +5 205/40/17
Rear: 17x9 +17 215/40/17

Tires can be changed if necessary.

I'm running 17x8.5 +42 205/40/17 and 17x9.5 +44 215/45/17 right now, so I'm wondering how much the different offset would affect me. I didn't have to do any modifications for my current wheels, but I'm also only dropped ~1.5" right now (H&R springs) and I plan on getting coilovers soon to drop lower.

I recently test fitted Works XD9 and noticed that i'm going to need some fender rolling for the rear but I am unsure for the front.


18x8 +45 (225/40/18) Front
18x9 +43 (235/40/18) Rear

Can someone point me in the right directions so when I put the new set on, I wont have to worry about what's rubbing and what i need to do.

I've been looking at Varrstoen 2.2.1 wheels recently.. and I was wondering if I could possibly fit the offset with the concave face all around.

Varrstoen Update 2 of 2: ES 2.2.1 (18″) 100% In Stock…!

18x9 +15 all around. Tires would most likely have a popped sidewall, but any tire size will do. Stock suspension. Would it be possible?

I'm new to this, so don't kill me.

In order to fit the +15s you will have to do some majoor fender rolling/pulling and stretched tires.
However, if you are just interested in the concavity of the wheel, you can go with the +41 offset as well and have the same concavity. The 18x9+15 and 18x9+41 has the same concavity and lip size. The offset only changes the size of the backpad.

Awesome. Thanks for the help, I may be placing an order in the future. I have one question though, are you guys offering polished lips? I saw it in one of your previous posts.

Looking to place some 18x8.5 +42 (all around)
Looking at the numbers, the front number comes out to be
65.95 which is > 65 (running at stock height)

What would I need to do and would 225/40/18's work ?

thanks

It's a millimeter... Do you really think a millimeter will make THAT much of a difference at stock height? Unbelievable.

Who the hell are these people? There should be a minimum post requirement for the Wheels/Tires section.
