Exclamation Wheel width upfront?

How wide can one go for rims upfront? Can i do 10.5 or 11 in the front? Will there be clearance/rubbing issues that would be concerning?

Sorry to say, but have you searched for your question? There are many similar threads. i.e.: my350z.com/forum/wheels-and-tires.

If you're going to ask such a question, you need to provide many details such as; what is the wheel size, wheel offset, tire size you plan on running, what is your suspension setup (how low or high), do you have a stock fenders, rolled fenders, etc...

Also, is there a particular reason you want such a wide rim on the front? Many people run 10.5 width wheels in the front, but it really depends on the offset of the wheel for clearance, and the tire size if it will rub.

I run 10.5 up front on mine with a 285/35-18 , but it's also got -3.3 degrees of camber. What are your actual needs ?

He meant “What are you using the car for that needs that much rubber?”

that's pointless, a wide tire is for handling and proper camber is needed to make the car handle properly.

Travlee nails it when he says 9.5” with a 15 mm offset. Mount a 255/40-18 or 255/35-19 tire on your 9.5” wide wheel with a 15 mm offset.
