Is their anyone out their with the remake kit on their Gen that can guide me in the right direction of getting my fitment to fit nicely (flush) with the wide fenders? I am currently sitting on BC racing coils and stock wheels. Any help would be greatly appreciated

|L8Braker||I would have bet money you couldnít pull off the 265s in the front, but you did it! Looks great, congrats!!|

New Wheels & Tires
Want to send a SHOT out to L8Braker .... If it were not for him i would still have stock wheels and still be searching for the right size and offset to get it done .. You are the man and i can't say thank you enough.. The fitment was ABSOLUTELY amazing ... !!!
These are the TSW Rivage:
Front's are 20x8.5 with 265/30/20 +20 offset
Rear's are 20x10 with 295/30/20 +25 offset
APOLOGIES FOR THE **** RESOLUTION... I usually use my DSLR to take pictures of things i care about their quality... But since its down, i had to settle on my cell phone which i do not prefer because .... its a smart phone, **** lens, **** pictures... Anyways here ya go
These are the old oem wheels:
These are the new wheels:
These are the 1st set of fronts that i got that i didn't really like, 255 on the 8.5 inch wheel, as you can see there is a SLIGHT stretch on it, enough to bother me to the point of not liking it one bit, so i took them off:
So i went with a 265, MUCH better flush fit, now i like :-)
These are the rear's:

|Jarhead4L||I'm planning out a lot of mods on my car right now, and hoping to get some help. I'm going for power (~600), performance, and looks. I'll be using brembos and most likely air suspension so my setup will need to clear those. I'd also like to get the wheels as close to flush that I can while my car is lowered, I'm willing to get the fenders pulled if needed but would like to avoid if possible. For specs I've seen 18(or 19)x9.5/+22 front, 18 (or 19)x10.5/+22 rear but not sure how those will work for what I'm looking for. I'm all ears on suggestions, thanks|

Finally got everything installed the coilovers still need to drop a bit but she fit almost perfectly with my stock spacers no rubbing at all. Thanks for all the info guys!

I just got 20x8.5 for the front with a 255/30 and its slightly stretched by like ~10 deg ... its not too bad, i have seen worse (like yours lol) but i can deal with it. The rear is a 20x10 with a 295/30 and its a perfect 0 deg flush fit to the wheel ..
Once i get these pictures uploaded and hosted i will post them

If you look at my tire and how it fits, add another .5 inches to each side and imagine that tire IS going to stretch to fit... Now its NOT even close to flush anymore .. That is the drifter look that i do not like...
My gen coupe will have a 10 inch wide wheel and even putting a 275 on it will stretch it out a little ... If my 275 is flush on a 9.5 inch tire, its going to stretch on a 10 inch wheel and even more on a 10.5 inch wheel.. This 10 inch will get a MINUMIM of a 285 tire and im sure that 285 will be damn close to a good vertical flush to the wheel, if not, then im going 295 or 305 to get that more tire than wheel look ...
I don't go by those calculators and converting mm to inches, that does not work in the tire world ... Yes a 275mm is 10.8 inches wide but in the real world you put a 275 on a 10.5 inch wheel, its not going to match ... !!
My Nissan (same as above) has a 7.5 inch wheel in the front and a 235 was vertically FLUSH with the wheel, then i went to a 245 and the tire was more than the wheel ... Do the math, 245mm is 9.6 inches .... So why does a 245 buldge out slightly when mounted on a 7.5 inch wheel...??
Because those calculators dont work and the recommended tire size per wheel is their safe margin. And MOST if not ALL of those recommended tires will be semi flush to slghtly stretched.

Donít forget the 275mm (10.8Ē) is the section width (incl sidewalls) so the tread is still going to be less than 275, and therefore there will be stretch. I run 275 on 10s, and itís a little stretched. 295/305 would never fit on a 10.5 +22 in my opinion without some stance-level camber.
|04-18-2019 10:56 AM|
Wouldn't 305 be too much tire for a 10.5? I was using some recommendations, but also multiple charts suggesting a safe MIN tire size for 10.5 wheel is 265mm with MAX being 295mm.
275mm is 10.8 inches so I wouldn't call it stretched really, but it is slightly. Now the 265 would be for sure stretched.
295mm is 11.6 inches and 305 is 12 inches. Would you wan to run some 11's on the rear if you were going with 305?

So I went with Aodhan DS02 wheels and Michelin pilot super sports. Tire sizes practically matched stock circumference so no speedometer issues.
9.5 + 22 245/40/18
10.5 + 22 275/40/18
Overall I have a bit of poke because I'm not running high camber and I don't want to be slammed. Can't really tell from the picture I have at the moment, but the tire sticks out a bit. I kind of like the look it gives though.
Camber: -2.1 to -2.0 camber on front and back.
Caster: 7.5* left front, 7.2* front right.
Toe -0.01 to -0.00 in front and rear. Drives really nice and the suspension shop was great. They recommended I consider adjustable toe arms since they are pretty much maxed out on the stock ones and even let me under there to show and explain. I guess I have another set of things to grab. Thanks again for the wheel suggestions mrGainZ.

I have pretty much decided on the Aodhan DS02.
At 18x9.5 +22 and 18x10.5 +22 would 255/40 fit in the front or would it poke a bit too much?
Based on similar configs I assum the 275/40 in the rear should be fine.
