Sorry, i'm kinda new with the wheel sizes and stuff. so, a good look would be 18x9.5 in the front and 18x10.5 in the rear, and a +22 offset in the front and rear? J/w

Yep, that or +15 all around will have you looking nice.

Looks like tnk was running a 18" bronze in the first pic, +22 or +15. The second pic looks like 19" diamond black in a +12 all around.

For the TE37, here are some general guidelines for sizes in our offsets:

  • 18" will have more concavity, and no cast in lettering. Very small lip. To me, it's a great look!
  • 19" will have flatter faces with cast in lettering.
    • The rears in 10.5 with a +22 or a +12 will have a nice fat lip.
      • +22 will be easiest to fit wider tires, if you plan on dropping much a simple fender roll will get you the clearance you need. I ran 285 on a +22 rear with a 2" plus drop with nothing more than a fender roll
      • +12 will be more "flush" to the body and will require more work to fit a wider tire. If you want the "hellaflush" look go +12 with a 255 tire.
    • The fronts in 9.5 have a big difference in look for a +22 vs a +12
      • +22 will have a small lip, but plenty of room for a fat tire. 255 front tire or larger is generally fine.
      • +12 will have fat lip that matches the rear lip, however there are clearance issues and you will be running a 245 or 255 max front tire, with the possible need for adjustable camber front a-arms if you are lowering. Also, if you have the stock Brembo brakes and want to run the +12 fronts, you will need a 3mm spacer for brake clearance. If you are going for "hellaflush", you will want this offset with maybe a 225 - very "aggressive" look and spacers will push it out more.
    • Another option for the front is to run a 10.5 +22 up there... you will have the same fitment issues as a 9.5 +12 and I think need the 3mm spacer for Brembo. In essence, a 10.5 +22 is a 9.5 +12 with the extra inch in width added to the inboard of the rim, if that makes any sense.
I think that about covers it.
