I see that you are also in Central Florida... Where did you get those wheels from and how did you know what offset you needed to get the flush fit..??Ace Alloy Devotion
19x8.5 +20F / 19x10 +25R
Yea man, i have went to MULTIPLE ... and i means MULTIPLE tire shops and nobody seems to know anything about offset let alone know what i need to buy to get my wheels FLUSH with the fender ... They all expect me to buy what they recommend and spend ~$2k .... on a set of wheels with their tires and see how they fit ... Im like ... ahh hell no, im not giving you $2k to do a test fit on my car, then what happens when they dont fit the way i want them to fit ...?? are you gonna give me my $$ back or what..?? Then some of them are like, why are you so fixed on a 10 inch rear ... Im like because i WANT a 10 inch wide wheel to fit a FAT ASS tire on it ..... Its a RWD CAR and it needs to look mean as **** ....I ordered them from Element Wheels, but they weren’t any help with fitment. I scoured this entire thread to settle on what I got. Most cars on here have a much more aggressive setup, so I took that into account and went with a conservative approach, figuring if I needed a 3-5mm spacer to make it perfect, I’d be okay. Fortunately, it all worked out.
Ace Alloy can make you custom offsets if you’re looking within their advertised range. Also, my contact at Discount Tire says they have software in the stores that can help you get the offsets right. I can’t vouch because I did it all on my own over a long period of time, but it’s worth looking into.
The key is to not take any one person’s word for it. Do your research. It’s too big a purchase to wing it and get it wrong. Good luck.
I have found like 3 sets of wheels that i really like and none of the companies will make them to a custom offset. Their offsets are set and cannot be changed ... The ones i really want are like 40 mm offset which is way too much and sinks the wheel too far in, which will require like ~15mm spacers to make them flush to the fender which i don't want to do. I hear both good and bad about spacers and not really sure who is right .. I think the best bet is to find a wheel with the 20F and 25R and be done with it ...Contact your wheel supplier and give them my setup, then tell them the tire size you wish to run and let them recommend the appropriate adjustments in offset to achieve the same result. Any reputable wheel manufacturer should be able to manage that for you.
Also, err on the side of more offset. You can always add a couple of mm by using spacers, but you can’t go the other way.
Trust me ... i KNOW about the opinions of spacers. Some like you claim they are fine and have used them for YEARS with no issues, others claim it screws up the alignment/suspension because it pushes the wheels further OUT than what the original suspension was designed for, blah blah blah ... I am NOT a suspension pro so i can't say if that is true or not... I have seen BAD reviews on YouTube about spacers as well ..Opinions differ regarding spacers. I ran them for 4 years on the factory 19s (15mm front/20mm rear) with zero issues, including track days. I wouldn’t rule them out if you found wheels you really, really want. Especially if you’re driving it daily, and not tracking the car.
Are the spacers ON with the new wheels now..??I put spacers on before 10k miles and just took them off at 65k. My original front tires went 26k, and the rears went 33k, with no updated alignment.
You might have an issue if you go full stance poke, but 15mm/20mm spacers are a non-issue.
