I'm not searching through 346 pages so I'm just gonna ask***8230; What's the widest wheel/tire setup you can run without having to roll fenders?

Car will be lowered(mild) once someone offers a spring. I was hoping to run 18's in the 265/275 range. Think this is a possiblility? Any recomendations on rim size/offset??

thanks

I have a 2021 with 2 sets of Enkie TSR-X bronze panit+powder coat clear coat wheels, and have no issues . My car is stock height and I run my winter set : 18x9.5 +38 with 255/35ZR18'S and my spring through fall set : 18x9.5 +38 with 265/35ZR18'S . no issues on either . The only reason I run the "255" in winter is for less cross width for better tra tion , but if it actually has a noticeable difference in traction is debatable . Honestly , it came down to a great deal on the "265" tires . I really like look of the "255" better .

Hey all -

I ordered a set of 18x9.5 +45 wheels to avoid any fitment woes, but was delivered a set that was +35 offset instead. The wait time was 5-6 months, and it would be another 5-6 months to get in a set of +45s. At this point I have been scouring the internet to see how I can make +35 work - some STIs have the fit dialed in and others look like small tractors.

I am lowered on coilovers, maybe 1 finger gap between tire and fender on the OE setup. I was thinking 245/40R18 tires to pair up with these wheels. Would appreciate any input into if y'all think this setup would generally work. I don't particularly enjoy the poke look, so anything that would help avoid rubbing, with as tucked of a fit that could be feasible. Or should I just give up and wait another 6 months?

Thanks!

2018 Anniversary no suspension mods
Rota Grid 18x9.5 +38
Conti DWS06+ 255/40 R18

Fit is great, no rubbing, no touching.

I drive in Northern NH, VT, and upstate NY. Winter is real, and roads are crap. I'd probably be better off with something in a 255/50 if someone made such an animal, but that wouldn't fit. There is no way the wheels would survive long up here on 265/35s. The Conti's are about all the meat I could stuff in there w/o mods. (those are not scratches on the left door/quarter, something reflected)
