Thank you for your reply

can you give me some input of what i should do?

i recently picked up a set of oem 19inches i refinished them to be perfect and ordered a brandnew set of tires

then.... i found out last minute that the seller did not disclose that these are non staggered 19 x 8.5

and i am in dilemma whether i should put them on or sell them

i already ordered a staggered tire set 225 front and 245 rear Is it ok for me to run staggered tire setup on non staggered wheels? Will it affect driving quality or any of driving dynamics or VDC will kick in even with staggered tire setup on non staggered wheel?

thank you

Well, if you had the right tires, you actually got an upgrade by having wider tires in the front. That'll help a lot with the understeer these cars have from factory, that's an upgrade I want to make to my car but won't let myself spend the $$

If you find someone to mount those tires on those wheels, you'll need to run with VDC off.... the front tire diameter needs to be a little smaller than the rears for VDC to be happy.

Plug in the two tire sizes into a calculator and see if the overall diameter is greater than 3%. If it's not then the VDC won't have problems.

I like this calculator because it does a side-by-side comparison with a neat little visual picture of the two compared tires as well as showing you the % difference.

Its less than 3% so its fine
just want to make sure putting 19 x8.5 +33 compare to factory 19 x 8 +30 in front will not rub against my factory brembo and also in full turning clock

mathematically it should be fine but just want to make sure because ive heard horrible fitment issues with brembo brake

does anyone know? Please help thank you

Get a tape measure and see if you have 3mm of clearance. Worst case scenario you end up adding 5mm spacers.

Greater positive offset shifts the centerline out further AWAY from the calipers, it shouldn't be an issue.
