I have a 2022 Limited BRZ on order with 18 by 7.5 wheels. I'm looking to do an all season setup for winter driving since I'm only going to drive in cold and prob no snow. In looking at wheels almost all are 18 by 8.

If I go with 18 by 8 should I go up to 225/40 instead of the 215/40 size that comes on the 18 by 7.5 oem wheels?

Also, do I need to be concerned about offset? I am so confused. Never bought after market wheels and this is my first BRZ/86 even though I am 53.

Waiting for my new blue baby in St Louis.

For winter driving i would suggest getting winter tires, but if you are sure you wont be driving in snow than all-seasons might suffice. If the winter wheels you are considering at 18x8 a 215/40 or a 225/40 will fit just fine on them. For snow though a narrow tire would be better. For offset you can try to stay near the stock offset anywhere from +35-48 is good enough. People will generally get low offsets to push the wheel out to get a flush fitment.

I will avoid the snow and only need all seasons because of the temperature changes here in Missouri. So with that being said am I better with the 225? That is the largest Costco will put on the 18 by 8 since it is a bit bigger than specs.

Yes, that will be fine. 225/40 size tires are the most common size on wheels with an 8" width.

BBS RF520 w/ Stock Suspension

I have a bone stock 2013 FR-S that I've had for about a year. I'm ready to start upgrading it and want to start with some nice BBS RF520s.

The RF520s are an 18x9 +45. I've heard there can be problems with the stock suspension when running a +45 offset with a larger wheel. While I plan on making the switch to coilovers next, I want to check if I will run into trouble with the stock suspension if I grabbed these wheels.

Also looking at Michelin Pilot Sport 4S @ 245/40 for tires.

Feedback and suggestions are welcome as this is my first time buying wheels.

I know I've seen 18x9 +45 fit on stock suspension before, but I'm not sure that a 245/40 tire will clear. For my setup the wheel/tire moves away from that strut by about 0.5" more than the setup you describe. I'd say mine is... about 0.5" to 0.75" away from the strut, so you'd be hitting VERY close or possibly not quite clearing.

EDIT: closest setup size to yours that I could find - mentions he has slight rub, but he also has a lift suspension.

OEM Brake Measurements

Hello! Long time reader, first time posting. I have the PP brembos, and am actually looking to downgrade to OEM brakes. the whole purpose is to fit 15s on. I am currently trying to source wheels for this project that have a lead time of 4 months before shipping, and I need to get this out of the way before buying the brake kit.

I am trying to see if someone either has measured, or could measure, two things:

1. the radius from the center of the hub to the tallest point of the caliper.

2. how far the caliper protrudes from the hub.

if anyone has this information i would greatly appreciate it!
