Are you flush?

If so post here!

Dont forget to include offsets, spacers, tire size, rim width etc.

Trying to figure out which combo will get me closest to my goal!

(Edit: Thanks to the mod that moved my thread, it is more appropriate here!)

How "flush" do you want to go? You can go extremely aggressive with the offsets but, do you mind rolling your rear fenders? Too flush usual equals rubbing issues, especially with certain tire brands . . . Bear that in mind . . . It would also help us if you explained your goal to us so we can better help you.

Great question, i hadnt thought that deep into it i suppose.

This is for a coupe, not a sedan. I would like to AVOID any fender rolling.

I also understand that some tires give you more room as their side walls taper.

I just want my wheels to come out to my fenders! Dont mind stretching my tires a bit to acheive this look!


What setups do you typically encourage clients to go with to get this look? a 19" rim would be ideal. not sure on offset/tire widths though!

If you are not willing to roll your fenders, I suggest not going for the overly flush look, but rather using a wheel with the proper offset. Here's a picture of how our EX-M1 19x10.5 ET40 sits on the rear of a coupe using a 275/30 General Exclaim tire. The car is also lowered and there are no rubbing issues.

looks great!

whats the suspension set up? I figure adding a bit of negative camber can buy me some space in there.

no spacers, correct?

The car is on H&R Race springs. We did not use spacers to achieve the fitment. That is how the wheel actually sits on the car.

to get the look you want you need to roll your fenders. Im running a 20x9 and 20x11 with agressive offsets and my wheels are 100% flush I needed to roll the fenders and adjust camber and toe settings to make it work.

I completely agree with going with the correct offsets and tires. Of course you can roll the fenders but since you wanted to avoid it, I would get a set of wheels with good offsets as well as tires with small sidewalls.

M3 this....you're car is SICK! I love the stretch and poke look (I'm actually going to that on my car in the near future) and its good to see someone do something different around here.

I'm flush in the rear....

19x8 et 40 up front, 19x9.5 et 25 out back
