thanx man. my offset is way too aggressive to tuck my wheels, unless i adjust my camber, but thats not an option

then again, if i ran some generals/t1-r/falken 452s i would possible be able to drive w/o rubbing. as it is, i really like how my rear is sittin. so i'm keepin it the way it is

5mm would do. t1r is your best bet.

you can

1. buy wheels that allow you to pick you offset

heres dr.phuonger's ride with custom offset

19x9 et 27 front and 19x10 et 25 rear



or

2. buy wheels and add spacers.

my wheels were 19x9.5 et 32, i added a 20mm spacer making it et 12mm and 19x11 et 25, i added a 10mm spacer making it et 12mm




to get the maximum flushness, you have to pick the right size tire, stretch a tire and roll your fenders.

Exactly!

I had 275s Bridestone Potenzas, which rubbed, and I went with 265 FK452s which now dont rub. I am lowered on KW V1s and want to go lower. I also have my fenders trimmed to allow that aggressive offset.

or here is your option 3.

buy wheels that have low offset and shave them down to the offset you want.


ra2fantics rear wheel was 19x10 et 20, i got 4mm shaved off making them et 24. you can only shave off 5mm on most wheels.

Nahh, I've seen E92's running 10.5 in the rear. Boost_Nation had 10.5's I believe.
