Fitment

Hey Guys,

Wondering if y'all can help me without with a fitment question. I've been searching around and have determined that on 19" wheels ET 33 in the rear is a perfect fitment for an e92.

My question is how would 18x9 et30 fit running 165/30/r18 tires. Most threads discuss 175 rear tires and its a tie between fitting and not fitting.

Can someone clear this up for me? Thanks!

you mean "265" and "275". 165/175 are tire widths that belong on a geo metro from the 80s. seriously. even a stock 92 civic hatchback had 185.

and what determined a +33 offset on a 19" wheel to be "perfect fitment"? One, you're missing the wheel width completely, and two, unless it's like at least 10" wide, a 9.5" width with +33 is not "perfect fitment". LOL

Really?

yes it was a typo 265 and 275. The sizes are there, have you read the thread?

The wheel size is 18x9 et30 with a 265/30/18 tire.

+33 on 19x9.5 wheel with 265/30/19 tire tends to FIT PERFECT without the hassle of rolling fenders and camber adjustment.

18x9 ET30 should fit on the rear without an issue, and you could run a 265/35/18 tire. 265/30/18 is too short.
