Re: Wheel Fitment Thread

Must be some XXR's with those specs haha. Probably 527s also. I'm running those specs in the rear with a 215/40. I would definitely suggest a 205 though, wish I would have gone with that.

Re: Wheel Fitment Thread

I'm looking to get the XXR 527's in the next few days, too. I'll be sure to post pics of their fitment with my Tein Coilovers.

I've decided to go with the XXR 527's. I currently have a 3" drop on my Teins.

How do you think 18x8.75 +20mm will sit? I'm thinking 205/40 for tires.

It is worth noting that a little poke wouldn't be the end of the world since I'm liking the idea of switching to FF2 coilovers.

Thanks for any help.

Edit: I just read the above posts after writing this... almface:
I lol'd at your edit

Ill post what happens with mine. But I just had a few guys saying I should have gone with 18x9.75s instead

lol I can see that since you're a bit lower, but for $523 I can't see much reason to complain.

Re: Wheel Fitment Thread

I've found a set of wheels that are 18x7.5 +45 with 205/45/18 tires. I'm on S-techs and have a ~2 finger gap at all four corners. I know the correct size would be 40 sidewalls, but the increased overall diameter would eliminate most of my wheel gap, which is kind of what I'm going for. Even with the 45 sidewalls I believe these will fit fine (with the occasional rub), however, will the wheels/car look stupid with that much tire?

Re: Wheel Fitment Thread

I had the same specs with a little less drop. You'll be about an inch from flush with the fender. I'm only responding because I know those specs from experience. Maybe some spacers to help. I was on 205/35's. I wouldn't recommend any higher than 215/40.

Re: Wheel Fitment Thread

just bought some corvette salad shooters. 17x8.5 front 17x9.5 rear +56 offset (im pretty sure). other than adapters, what tire size do you guys suggest i run and what about a spacer because of the high offset? not quite sure on this. got them for cheap tho

Im running 225/40s on 18x9+35 with no fender work at the moment. Tucking 1/4" front and 2 finger gap rear. I only rub on hard turns. So if you have all the proper fender work done then you should be good with a 225. At least 215.
