How much will my wheels poke?

Ordered wheels and wanted to know if someone could tell me how much my wheels are going to poke. Should be getting them in 2-3 weeks. Will be using conversion spacers to 5x114.3.

Coilovers: Fortune Auto 500 Series w/Swift Springs

Rims: Work VS-KF
Front: 19x9.5 +20, with spacer +5
Rear: 19x11 +26, with spacer +11

Already know that i will have to stretch tires and roll my fenders.

+26 fronts
+27 rears

have you thought about redrill and run inserts vs the adapters? fronts need plates and the rears will need shave bigtime.

+1

E90 or E92? in my opinion with those kinds of widths and offsets you wouldn't need spacers.

Yes did think about redrill but it would kill resale value if i ever sold them. Coils have plates on them if thats what you're talking about.

Numbers are right around what i was expecting.

That sizing is pretty aggressive, especially with an adapter. Major work will be required to fit that.

On a side note though, VS-KFs are cool wheels. Especially with a stepped lip. I've never seen them in that finish though.

If shaving the rear fenders is major work then yes, other than that no other work required.

Finish is new to me aswell, looks awesome though.

Is that 5mm and 11mm spacer what you are using to change your bolt pattern?

Because iirc adapters are usually like 3/4"-1" thick. Also are the wheels and spacers hub centric?

Guess you new, the adapters are 15mm. Notice the difference in the two offsets, one without the spacer and one with, its a difference of 15mm for both.

Yes, wheels and spacers are hub centric. They're the Ichiba conversion spacers.

Alright so that is your final offset I thought the second number was the size of the spacer lol.

What size of tires are you using? 225/35/19 and 255/30/19?

Yes sir, final offset's.

Tires will be Fed 595, 215/35 and 245/35. If I find that i can fit bigger tires, then i will switch them out but i think im cutting it close now.

215/40 is a closer match for 245/35.

Not putting a 40 side on a 19in wheel. Besides, Feds run tall and tires will be stretched.

215/40 has almost the exact same size of sidewall as 245/35. With a 215/35 your tires would be taller in the rear and shorter in the front than stock sizes.

Thats fine with me, want it a little taller in the rear. Only people with a certain eye will catch the difference, which is only like a half inch. If I don't like it, I can always switch them out later to that size.

Definitely looking forward to this set on your car.

Don't forget to buy extra front fenders since you might break one or two in the process. LOL.

Mad props to you for the super aggressive offsets.

Front: 19x9.5 +20, with spacer +5
Rear: 19x11 +26, with spacer +11

Make sure you shave the hell out of your rear fenders and have adjustable camber arms ready.
