Hey guys, I need some advice on how to make these wheels fit correctly. I'm still learning about wheel fitment/tire sizes so bear with me. The wheels are a set of Enkei RPF1s and the sizes are:

FW: 18x8.5 offset 29
RW: 18x9.5 offset 30

What size tire would look/fit the best? Also how hard is it gonna be to make these suckers fit? I am dropped on Tanabe coilovers and am pretty low. (0 finger wheel gap )I know the fenders will definitely need to be rolled but should I expect any other difficulties? Thanks guys any help is appreciated

Hey guys,

Im in the process of trying to sell my car but if I keep it, id like to change it up.
Currently I have

Front 19x8 + 35 w/ 215/35/19
rear 19x9.5 + 38 w/ 235/35/19

I have a slight rear pull with rolled fenders and
fronts are shaved and rolled


I am looking at

Front: 19X8.5 +35
Rear: 19X9.5 +35

I am assuming I am good to go and will just put them on.

I used the calculator and said slight pull, i am already pulled and lowered.
I am just wanting to know which tires would be good for me
]

I am overseas and am going to try and set the car up and purchase items from here.
I know APEX has close offsets as to what i am getting, Just looking for some good info.

thanks guys, really appreciate any help.

How come with 18x8 35mm and 18x9 41mm I need to roll fenders. If I would put a 245/40-18 would I really need to roll? How about the 235/40-18?

The company selling the wheel said that they will fit without modifications.

Does anyone think it's possible to do 17x9 +20 all the way around? Probably with stretched tires and roll?
Yes, 215/35 or 40 all around someone can chime in for that, roll your fenders flat. Look for jon on the forums he has a thread running/was running aggressive 17's with just a roll

Are you lowered at all?
Even if not, you will probably still have to roll the fenders. I'd imagine with both tire setups even the 235's you might rub at least once. The stock suspension is so soft, if it were my i'd just throw on the 245's and not worry about rolling and see what happens ;)

(Depending on how low you want to be run the 35's for lower)
215/35 or 40/18
225/35 or 40/18

I am currently running a 18x8.5 +25 with a 225/40/18 and 18x9.5 +30 225/40/18. I was rubbing a bit in the front on hard turns and big dips with rolled fenders all around but i just got some 215/40's so I'd imagine i won't be rubbing anymore unless i lower the car more...which i plan on doing anyways

Ok I'm trying to understand this, I have a 02 model stock height, will the following volk's fit:

18x8.5 +40
5x114.3

225/40/18 tires

I'm not looking for staggered, just the same all around. Basically if it will fit without requiring any modifications.

Thank you for your info and help!

245/35 is good.

Those will fit fine without modifications. Your car will look like a truck, but they will fit fine.

What color is ur car?
I run the exactly Set up
215/35/18 and 235/35/18 Tires
-2 Camber all around
2" lowered on Coilover
Fender is rolled flap and pulled 15mm in the Back, 10mm in the Front.


There is no way u can do this WITHOUT fender roll. U even have to pull it...unless u plan not to lower ur car at all.
Or just get 18 x 8.5 all around. Then all u need is roll fender a bit.

This is how it sit WITH rolled flap fender and -4 Camber.

Then just get Flat Black XXR 521, u dont have to paint it at all after.
And how low u going? U might not have to roll fender if u run stretch tire on 18 x 8.5 all around.
