well ive deciding to pass on tire stretching for the moment..maybe on the next set of tires ill get into fitment.but the 245's i got for the front are labeled inside and outside so i dont think i can flip those. but if i go with the +12's how much camber do you think ill be running with rears rolled and a rear camber kit with alignment?(without rubbing of course) another member is running +12's with 275/35/19 rears with rolled fenders and -4 camber and said he couldnt adjust it without damaging his fenders..but some say i should have no problem getting +12 offset to OEM specs with a fender roll...

im either getting g35 s techs or MDU Coilovers...if i get the MDU Coilovers i will be setting ride height pretty much so the fender is sitting as close to the tire as possible for my daily setup(apt complex is speed bump happy and exit is STEEP and slamming it down occasionally when the urge comes. (so keep my plans in mind with the camber question) im not worried about camber when im slammed since ill only be doing it every once in awhile...so my daily setup will be fender to tire(some tuck)

O Hella OEM was on +12 TE37s with the same tire size and ran little to no camber on rolled fenders.

I'm finding someone to your fenders right now, I'll let you know.

Quick question: I am getting 20x9.5 +25 front and 20x10.5 +18 rear and am on Rsr springs which gives me a 1" drop in front and 1.2" at the back + a 1/2" cut on the springmount! So with those specs, what would be the best tire specs i can get to close that fender to tire gap! I like to run beefy tires and am willing to shave part of the front fender off to accomodate that! Also have some 10mm and 15mm spacers to push out the wheels more!

Just looking for a semi-agressive look! Btw, planning on getting general uhps!

Your help is much appreciated! :-)

IMO, with 20s you need to go lower. I suggest you buy coilovers. You also will not be able to "shave" the front fenders.

You could go with something like 255/40 and 295/35

But that's a pretty beast tire especially on a 20.

If it were me I'd do 255/35 and 285/30

Hahaha sorry just realized that came out wrong! I was actually pertaining yo that metal bracket where the front bumper and fenders meet that the tires usually hit! When i was running my 19s my fronts at +15 with 40 series tires rubbed on that part and was adviced that i can partially shave that to i can sit more flush!

Hmmm didnt really think of those tire specs! Always thought that i would rub on those! Might give that a try! Im actually saving up on the coils but i want to get the coils that i really want! Tein comfort sports with edfc and with 5k springs up front so itll take quite some time before i can put on coils! :-(

5k up front? Those are way to squishy man, you're going to eat fenders really quick.

You mean the bumper bracket I guess.

Assuming this is a coupe?

1. You don't need to pull the fenders or even roll them with that offset.
2. You're running a mild stretch with the 235, you can run a much larger tire without issues.
yeah its on a coupe. a mild stretch is what i was looking for. i was thinking of rolling the fenders due to me racing the car and i didnt want the tires to rub in the corners. thanks for the reply

I would double check the spring rates on the Teins. I'm surprised they would even offer such low spring rates on a heavy car. It's going to be very squishy, not so much bouncy.

Yea I'd roll the fenders no matter what, but you won't need a pull at all with that stretch and offset.

I want an all season tire. Summers where I'm at though can be pretty hot. What about Kumho or yokohama's or continental are those any good? I currently have Kumho they are good just want some additional recommendations.

Yea its that! Its actually even on the sticky on here on aftermarket suspension and talked to b2autodesigns about it too! What do you mean by squishy then? Ive been looking into comfortable coils and I have 2 current options:

Bilsstein PSS10: 370 Front and 280(I think)-420 Progressive rear

and

Tein Comfort Sport: 390 Front and rear

hey,
have sf challenges 19x9.5 +28f (245/35/19) & 19x10.5 +23r (275/35/19). I'm planning to swap my springs to coilovers soon and to lower the car to at least no finger gap all around. I know the rears are going to tuck because as of right now i have 1 finger gap with -1 camber in the rear ( I set it like that when i had oem wheels). Now that i'm gonna go lower, i plan to set my camber a little more negative like at -2. My question is how many mm spacers should i get for the rear to flush it... also what negative camber do you suggest? Thanks.
