Mild roll in the rear will do, on 275 tires. Fronts will poke out an inch. I'm currently running 19x10 +0 in the rear.

You should be fine, reall close , fitment may need to get adjusted with camber

What offset would you consider going with so I won't have to use camber?

Default Help with Wheel supplier

"Please" bare with the subject of this thread as I've only recently purchased my own 350z, I needed to know what wheel manufacturers/vendors carry wheels that I can order that will allow a rear tire profile of 285 or even better 295 without having a "stretched" tire, because every site I go to it seems as though their cutoff or "recommended" tire size is 275 on a staggered set up?? I'd GREATLY Appreciate anybody's help with this please and excuse me if this has been covered already.

Look around at other setups posted in this section, most people post wheel brand, size , offset and tire spec. Find something you like, try google to find out where to buy them

Default New wheels purchased

So I am new to the 20s game, I bought these wheels for car shows. The sizes are 20x9 +25 front and 20x10.5 +30 rear, what tire sizes can I squeeze into the wheel wells I hate stretched tire look so looking for a meaty set up that won't bother me much. Ive looked everywhere and didn't find anything.

Wheels I got

Will it rub?
I looked through almost every post in this thread, but didn't see what I'm looking at getting.

265/35/18 Dunlop Z2ss
Enkei RPF1 18x9.5 + 15 square
Stock height 03 Track

I suspect the rear won't be an issue, but I'm worried about the front. Will be used for autocross in bumpy parking lots.

Will be purchasing some enkie nt03 square set 18x10.5+30 with 235/35. Only concern is will I have any issues with the front ? I'm only on lowering springs and will be rolling fenders. I also plan on going with more beefy tires.

At full compression it may touch, nothing to really worry about

Front will not clear the spindle without a minimum of 5mm spacer. I run a 10mm spacer on mine either the same wheels up front, but I don't run comical tire sizes

Possible to run:

Enkei Kojin
18x8.5 +25 F
18.9.5 +15 R
245/40.18 tires all around.

On mild drop, HKS coilovers.

I know the 9.5" may be slightly pushing it on the 245's, but that's what I currently have, and the tires are fairly still new, and wanted to run a square setup for track and autox. I've run 225 on a 8.5" on my older car (Audi) and it was a very very slight stretch, nothing major at all, so I figured 20mm is like .7xx of an inch, so did not think it would be an issue? only concern is the +15 possibly being too aggressive.

TIA for any feedback.

9.5 +15 all around is what you would want. 245 on a 9.5 is a good combo for handling.

thank you, my good man. oh wow, +15 up front wouldn't have rubbing issues? to make clear, this is a track and autox vehicle.

these are the wheels/setup im thinking of trying with the 245 all around tires, just wondering if i could have rubbing in the rear, even though its barely lower than stock height.

The track and autocross guys would run a 265/35-18 on those wheels up front, very slight rub, but easily fixed with a hair of camber. 275/35 also is common in the track community on that size wheel

yeah, if I could start all over on the tire purchase, I'd run the 265 all around, but i have 245 Z2's with barely any wear, so I'd like to keep them for now and use those up, then later go to the 265's. As for camber up front, my alignment is a little out of whack there and i don't have any adj control arms, etc, yet. I have some negative camber up front.

But just to confirm, the +15 will be fine all around? that seems fairly aggressive up front to me, so just want to make sure before I order. Thanks for all the feedback!

9.5 +15 is just fine up front, you can run 10.5 +15 up front if you want.
