i THINK you will be okay with those offsets and sizes, not too aggressive but someone else will need to chime in (i know more about 18s)

Rear:
305/30
19x10.5 +18
Lowered and fenders rolled.

Front:
275/30
19x9.5 +17

Any clue on if I'll have major issues? I know I had about 3-4mm of clearance when I was running 295s out back on a set of 10.5in 18s with a +15 offset. It'll be tight and may require some extra camber...thoughts?

you will be fine with those... you can do a 9.5+23 and not rub in the front (my hr ran that size, but i have DE friends running a +15 in front)

Default 10.5 RFP1 on 285 RS3 all around on stock suspension, will it rub?

I did it know exactly where to post this but as the subject says I have 10.5" with 15 offset RFP1 wheels with 285 rs3 on them. I still have stock suspension but rear fenders are rolled. Will this rub or damage my front fenders? They are on my car in the garage now and the front tire sticks out past the front fender like a jeep but I have not driven on them yet. I was hoping someone had tried this before.

I plan to run an autocross Sunday so I will have full compression on the suspension. I have stock camber also, all stock 03 350z. Want to run it this way once before the new suspension goes on if possible.

I am awaiting my ohlins to arrive and have the adjustable camber arms ect so it will be built properly for autox in a month in STU classand I know the wheels will work with the new suspension and aggressive camber.

they will probably touch a bit near full compression. I wouldn't chance it, just install your front arms and add a hair of camber if you already have them. It will also save your tires

Will it rub?
9.5 + 12 Front
10.5 + 15 rear

I can roll fenders, but do not want to camber if possible.
2003 350z non brembo, lowered on tein springs.

tire size is still undecided depending on fitment. (what do you think will work for me?)

The wheels won't, but your tires can depending on size

Would 245/35 Front / 275/35 Rear tires rub with the previous wheels I mentioned?

Wheels: 9.5 + 12 Front
Tires: 245/35

Wheels: 10.5 + 15 rear
Tires: 275/35

Will that rub on a lowered Z with rolled fenders?

Stock 350Z enthusiast 2007

ES2 19x8.5 +35 offset

ES2 19x9.5 +22 offset


interested in running 245/35/19 Front
and running 275/35/19 back

Was thinking maybe Mich SuperSports.

Will this work? And if it does, anyone have suggestions for a best performance fit?

Default fitment question

I am going to buy 19" vordoven forme 1 rims 9.5 front, 10.5 rear. And offset of 22mm front 22mm rear. My car is lowered 1 inch on springs. And my fenders are not rolled. I will roll them if need be. As for tires I'm leaning towards falken fk452. 255/35/19 front and 275/35/19 rear. If anyone could tell me if this setup will fit properly or if I need a different offset or tires sizes I would greatly appreciate it. As far as I know these should fit. And i think I could even have up to 15mm offset.

Rears may need a hair of a roll, depends on where in the OEM camber range you car is at

You will need to roll the rear and trim the fender liner screw up front.

Your tire width is the only mistake you're making

All cars are slightly different and different tires are actually different width. Results can be off by a hair or two, if off you may require front camber arms to get rid of the rub.
