Thanks in advance
Yes.

So I'm looking to get a set of Niche Misano M117s with some pilot a/s 3s. I'm trying to figure out the right size for both as well as the offset. From what I've seen, there's not really a point to staggered wheels for our cars if we're not pushing out more power, so I plan to go the same all around. I want wide wheels so I was thinking about 18x9.5 but I don't want any rubbing, so I'm not sure what offset I should go with, or if I should even go with the 18x9.5 or something a bit smaller. My car is stock height, but I plan on lowering it in the future so I'm going to need something that'll work with both stock height and lowered. I've seen that 245/35/18 will work good with 18x9.5 but like I said I'm not sure if the 9.5s would be the best option.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, Thanks.

Welcome to the forum.


IMO, 18x9.5 wheels are not the BEST option. They can work on stock suspension with a +38 offset and 235/40 or smaller tires. +35 will also work.


Coilovers are needed to really dial in 18x9.5 wheels.

Have a set of 48mm offset 18x8 Sparco Assetto Garas. Off a VW GTI so its a 5x112 bolt pattern, so I bought 4 20mm hub centric spacer/conversion from 5x100. Now I just need to decide tire size. Looking around this isnt a popular combination, but I'd like to keep the wheels just need to decide on what tire to buy. Looking at wheel-it-fit calc it seems to hit in the rear with 245/30. I have stock suspension and -1.5 camber in front from camber bolts. What tires would you guys recommend?

Question Halp!

Hi guys I needy help figuring this out.

I'm thinking on buying Bremmer Kraft BR10 18x9.0 +42 (similar to this thread http://www.ft86club.com/forums/showthread.php?t=39679)

The difference is he has coilvers with 1.25" drop and Ill just have 1" drop with springs (Eibach Pro Kit). I prefer a square setup unless staggered is the only way to go.

Will I be able to achieve perfect flushness? What's the biggest tire I can use without rubbing? Am I going to need spacers?

Thanks in advance!

Welcome to the Forum!


Square is better than staggered.


I have 18x9 +42 wheels and had Prokit springs.


18x9 +42 should fit stock suspension and lowered on Prokit springs, depending on tire width.

But, without some room between the wheel/tire and spring perch, you won't be able to add camber to tuck the top of your front wheels. This is why I started by adding a 10mm front spacer and 5mm rear.


I didn't feel like the wheels were flush, so swapped out the old spacers for 12mm front and 15mm rear. Now my wheels sat nice and flush with just prokit springs (for natural rear camber) and one set of camber bolts for the front. My camber was -1.8 rear and -1.4 front. Drove 65,000 miles with this setup. No weird tire wear.


I know a 225/40 will fit without any other mods. ( no spacers, no camber bolts, no other parts)


I'm running 245/35/18 all around. (this size tire has the same outside diameter as OEM)


A 255/35/18 will fit with spacers. ( this is the biggest size that I would recommend for a 18x9 wheel)


My car is post#5 in this thread.

I have tried 215/40, 225/40 and 245/35 on an 18x8. 245/35 was not a good fit.


My advice would be to go 225/40 on an 18x8. (or 215/40 if you like a bit of tire stretch)




This is a 18x8 +45 with a 25mm spacer and a 215/40/18 tire. I am lowered 1" and have -1.4 camber from a set of camber bolts. Your 18x8+48 with a 20mm spacer will be sunk in at least 6mm compared to this pic.

225/40 would be good for the front, but why wouldn't you recommend a 245/40 or a 245/35 for the rear? Was there excessive rubbing or something?

Thanks a lot! Will I need longer studs with the spacers? I guess I'll go with Hankook Ventus V12 245/35/18


Btw, cambers bolts? (Kinda car noob here) If it's something I need to replace which ones you suggest?

You are welcome!


I do not suggest the Hankooks. I would suggest MPS4S for a Michelin. (non - budget friendly) I also suggest the Indy 500 Firehawk as a budget friendly tire.



You will need longer studs to be able to add slip-style spacers. I DIY'd everything. It isn't that hard. You will need basic tools, and a couple special tools. The large axle socket, 32mm IIRC, and a ball joint separator. You will also need open ended lug nuts, spacers, camber bolts, and extended studs. Everyone suggests ARP extended studs, though I went with cheap ebay ones and have not had ANY issues.

Cam bolts.
https://www.ebay.com/itm/SPC-Perform...MMrZ:rk:1:pf:0


Installing the camber bolts is fairly easy too. There are a ton of DIY's in the DIY section...


Ball joint separator



I like hubcentric spacers that have the same OD as the brake rotor. If you are searching for a specific width, include these words into your search: "HUBCENTRIC 5X100MM 56.1MM"


Something like these.

A 245/35 does not fit a 18x8 very well. The tire is to wide which kills your steering feel. It also feels like it folds over on hard cornering. I hated it when I had them. IMO, it is totally not what you want. If you want a wider tire, get wider wheels. (I am running 18x9's front and rear now)


I mean a 235/40 could work. Still, I highly suggest getting 225/40 for front and rear. Don't go staggered.


I am saying this because of the many different staggered setups I had. None of them were as good as a square setup.

One more question Leonardo

"

Minimum required spacer for a 255/35 to work?

Depends on the exact tire. Tires can vary in width quite a bit. But, I think 10mm will work.
