I'm currently running Maya ST5 19x7.5 +42 and 19x8.5 +42 w/ 5mm spacer for the flush look and still have a finger gap between 245/35/19 rear tire wall and inner shaved fender. So, making the current rear wheel space for maybe +32 offset. Here are the pix:



And I'm considering of going to get the new Enkei RPF 1 type RC that are 18x8.5 +42 and 18x9.5 +45.


Now the Q is would the rear fit w/ the space I have mention above being that right now I'm running +32 offset?

Thanks for the help and +rep for those who would like to help.

Just wanting to get some different wheels and look and it would probably get my car rolling a bit faster take off w/ smaller diameter and lighter set of wheels.

something in gunmetal would look nice...and unless you are turbo the IS is slow so the drop from 19 to 18 wont help too much

Those Enkei RPF are a really nice look. Plus I think the silver on silver will look a lot cleaner.

How are you running a 32 offset does that mean I could run a 35 offset? I thought that was way to low and would rub the hell out of your tires. :)

^^^ I'm actually running +42 offset plus 5mm spacer that would make them +37 offset and I still have good one finger gap between the tires sidewall and the shaved inner fender. So, just let said that another 5mm spacer would make it +32 offset, but that means that I have to replaced the studs of the wheel to be longer. Because 5mm is not that much at all.

The sales w/ enkei mention that if I want the these set none stagger I could get it w/ the front offset all the way around.
