Thank, slowbarujosh! Do you know what 275mm tires are on your buddy's car? NT01s runs much wider than most street tires. Did he have to roll the fronts too or only the rear?

tbh if i remember they were just a regular potenza like a s04 or something summer driven but no semi slick like re71r's or anything in that realm... fronts rolled too rears pulled i believe since his fenders look very similar to mine and ive had quite the fender work done to run a 265 on a +22 right now lol

I need help guys, i want to get some Ce28SL but stuck between the 18x9.5 in +35 and +45. I was told both clear brembos but dont know how each offset will fit or what they require to be ran.
I have a 2013 sti sedan lowered on fortune auto 500 coil overs and my rear fenders are rolled flat with a very slight pull. I daily the car but track it every once in a while so I dont really want to sacrifice its function.
i was planning on running a 265/35 or 255/35 tire as i really dont want that stretch look. Also I dont know if it makes a difference but i have the seibon carbon fenders.

My dream is 305/19 with Forgestar CF5-V's 19x11 - and of course fender flares, most likely HTA's which give you an extra 50mm. I'm on coilovers. My question is what offset do I need to run?? Or more importantly, is this possible?? I want the tires flush with flares, nothing severely tucked or slammed.

The +45 will be (for lack of better term) "tucked" or very slightly inset from flush, whereas the +35 will be basically poking out.

Hello all. Im looking at getting a set of Gram Lights 57DR size 18" 5x114.3 ET38. I currently have Pilot Sport 4 tyres 245/40/R18 and stock suspension. Would those fit ok and clear the calipers?

What would a stock car need done to run a setup similar to yours? Love the 9.5s but don't want a roll. If 9.5s won't fit would enkei RSM9s 18x9s?

What do you do with the car that warrants a setup so wide?

Looks. Found a GR with these rims on 275's, looks like 285's will give a more square look.
