Based on my experience, I believe they would all clear the front struts.

Only advice Iíd give is 235/40 is too tall IMO. 245/35 is much closer to stock rolling diameter.

Thanks. I canít tell you the amount of time I have spent on tire height calculators over the years for various project cars. Maybe I will try and sell my left over wheels and tires as a package first. BMW fitment. Before ultimately deciding to use that taller size on the 86.

Any other suggestions for wheels I am overlooking? Or sources for wheels? I spent some time on fitment industries site as well.

No worries mate.

I recall there were some decent looking enkeiís around in the 18x8.5 fitment, but I havenít looked in a little while.

After finding the meaty tire thread another thought would be to just use the 235/40 upfront and look at going staggered. Then picking up the correct diameter tire for the rear. Wheel see. LOL.

Two decades ago I ruined the ride of my Miata by adding 15Ē Borbet wheels. They were so much heavier than stock. We barely had the internet back then.

Will this fit? (No rubbing and tire tread is not exposed when viewed from top of fender.)

17x9 +40
255/40R17
-2.5* camber (eccentric bottom + OE crash bolt top)
Stock suspension

Probably rub on the spring perch and close to the fender depending on how wide the 255 runs

Hi all,

is there anyone how has expierience with a REAR (!!) 10.5 or 11 inch wide rim while maintaining REASONABLE camber (arround - 1.5) and with stock body?

I calculated a offset of +48 for 10.5J and +54 for 11J to have the same fitment on side of the fender based on my current setup which is 9.5J +35.

I plan to run a 285/30 on a 11 inch wide rim (ideal) to have the same stretch as on fromt axle, where I want to keep the 245/35 Im running currently.

The question is, if this can fit at the inside. Im sure the braket for the E brake cable will need modification, but I also dont see a big issue in this. But Im unsure about the top mount/strut tower. Can somebody say out of expierience if 10.5 or 11 inch width is possible with the named offset and camber?

Thanks in advance!

To be very clear: Im just asking for the rear axle. Its clear for me that this will not fit on the front axle.

You can run 285/30's on 18x10 square with +40 with the right suspension components, you need front LCA, rear LCA, and rear UCA to narrow the track slightly. Don't know about anything wider then that on stock body but would imagine the wider rim won't clear the strut since it barely does in the setup above I mentioned.

Hey all

New to the BRZ/86 community, have had other Nissans and Subarus in the past.

With a stock suspension setup, would a set of 18x9.5 +38 with 235/35/18 fit well?

I understand they'd have poke (roughly around ~1cm if my math is right)

Any help would be appreciated

Im running 9.5J18 - 35 wrapped in 245/35 square, slightly lowered and camber correction front and rear. This fits pretty well and dont have any rubbing issues. I have a 9.5J18 - 38 for drifting as well. If I use this rim in the front it slightly rubbs the front stabilizer when wheels are fully deflected.

If stock suspension or not, it will NOT fit on the front axle without camber correction. Expect - 2į for a resonable fitment.

Concerning not clearing the strut: Are you refering to front or to rear axle with that?

I believe it's equally tight on both inward. The same guy that was running that setup is on a 305 now with a slight poke and same wheel offset outback FWIW.

Velox makes a steering rack limiter kit too if you're worried about it scrubbing at full lock. I've got one for my car but haven't installed it yet.

ENKEI GTC02 18x9.0 +42 5x100 will fit and clear the PP brakes.
