2006 Enthusiast with stock suspension and NO fender roll.

front: 18x8.75 +20mm 245/40/18 tire

rear: 18x9.75 +20mm 275/40/18 tire

Will it rub? Do I need to roll my rear fenders?

Offset, I have a feeling they are +20 Or +25 in XXR , either will be perfectly fine

Thanks Terrasmak. I did a lot of research and just wanted to make sure I didn't have a cranial-rectal inversion.

-225/35/19 F
19x8.5 +30 Offset

-Linea Corse IC818

Will tires bigger then the 225/35/19 rub in the front? I am having the problem that the current tires are too stretched and too low pro, and expose the rim and usually have them cracked, thanks to L.A potholes!...and have to pay for the weld which is not cheap. Any info on bigger wheels with more cushion and not too stretched would fit/rub would be greatly appreciated!!

Is it true that the RPF1s in 18 x 9.5/10.5 +15 rub? Would use 255/40 and 275/40 sized tires. Lowered on Eisnap pro-kit springs, considering coils though for that low low. I'm worried about the mounting screw for the fender liner I think it is that's close with the +23 that's on there now. I would be open to possibly adding negative camber as well as it's not driven enough right now that I'm concerned about going through tires.

It will rub front and rear , the rear will require a simple roll to be fine. The front will need the fender liner screw cut down and folded more and maybe a hair of camber.

That's the same setup I was running when I drove to TX a while back. But I was running around -2.5 front camber for a daily and was still getting over 20k on my street tires

You said you didn't have the alignment sheet, or am I thinking of something else?

I'm going to look at clearance today. 8mm is about the length of my pinky nail, getting real technical with this.

The front will as mentioned above with +15 , then the rear may rub slightly at close to full compression depending where in the OEM alignment spec you fall in.

Will 18x9.5 +25 Square setup with 275/40/18 all around rub with stock ride height and alignment? Eventually going to lower the z about a 3/4 of an inch. Any issues... Possibly a fender roll?

you will be okay, i ran a 9.5 +23 in rear, no roll and didnt rub when i was lowered an inch, there for a while i had a 5mm spacer and didnt rub, when i changed the +23 to a +15 i had to roll the fenders

Default 18x9 Weld RT-S Wheels on Brembo G35

I'm looking to pickup a pair of 18x9 Weld RT-S wheels, wanted some input on whether or not they'd fit my 2003 G35 Coupe w/Brembo brakes?

The pair I'm looking at are in Supra fitment, they'll be for the front only.

Thanks!
