Actually, one more size need an opinion on, now leaning towards

18x8.5 +42, with a 225/40/18 tire or am i better off with 245/35/18

Would either have any fitment issues, rubbing, poking etc on either stock suspenion or lowered TRD type springs?

If go 245/35 for sure mate. More meat looks better than slightly stretched IMO.

That will fit nice and should take a camber bolts. Go 245s

New guy here, so be gentle. I'm building a car with my son as a father-son project, it's a 2013 FRS. I found a set of Volks that are 18x9.5 et 30 that I can get and refinish. It seems like that's probably not a great offset for these cars?

Most of the 18x9.5's I've looked at are in the 40-45 range. We don't want the car stanced, just lowered and flush.

How low do you plan on going is going to play a factor in how flush it is. Also, you really dont need 18x9.5 wheels to be flush that size wheel is pretty wide and just overkill and just add additional weight imo. Stick with 17x8 +35 or 17x9 +35-38. Now, if you are really want those Volks sure they will fit with Coilovers you may have rubbing issues on the fender as well depending on the size tires you choose.

Thanks for the reply. I doubt we will go much lower than 1" to 1.25". Lots of steep driveways here in our area unfortunately. My wife works for a large tire manufacturer, so the world is my oyster there. Was thinking 255 35 in back in 245 35 in front.

Well you *may* rub in the front with 255/35, but depends on the tire itself some are more wider than others. As far are staggering there is no need on this platform these cars dont make enough power theres just no benefit and itll be more prone to understeer but thats just my opinion... anyway you'll most likely be able to make this setup work with coilovers tho good luck.

I'm looking to add 18x8.5 +45 wheels with stock suspension on a 2022 brz. Will this clear the strut/spring?
