I was curious on how to achieve this look of the rear tires? Because I do not care for the rear tires to be tucked.
So I was wondering if it was offset or width, or a combination of both?

I've seen the Amuse car from many different angles, and it looks like they actually cut the fender to make the wheel well larger.




Compared to your car... we have that inch or so of flat metal, where the body and the end of the fender well meet



To somewhat achieve this look, I guess you could trim the entire inner fender lip off, and get spacers (or a different sized rear wheel), and lower your car another 1/2 inch or so. That's my take on it.

Thanx for the info.
This pic looks differnt then the other one, but it still looks sick. I plan on getting coil overs, and have been debating on some new wheels. That is why I was interested in this.

is that really practical? it looks like its just a hair away from the fender, going over any bumps will cause the tire to contact the fender unless there is no travel in the suspension. looks sick though.

since Amuse Altezza it is a demo car, I don't think they care about fender rubbing occasionally.

I may be getting that look. I got 19x9.5 with 45 offset. so it may actually be flush with the fender. I will have to stretch 235 /35 to clear the fender. also probably have to roll it deep..

9.5 in wheels are sitting in my garage. but I'm waiting for the 8.5in fronts to arrive before starting the mayhem or prepping the fender.

Can't wait to see the outcome. 9.5 +45 is gonna be rough. Sounds oversized on paper, but with the right modifications it seems possible. Thats going to look tits.

bringing back the old tread.. side by side comparison?

Looking like Amuse have 10's on the rear. I have 9.5 +45. Amuse still have some wheel width or offset on me.

Alignement

Add massive negative camber and even a little toe in to the mix also. This is not very practical but a show car is generally driven down a ramp and on to a show room floor and that's about it.
