what would be considered "strong wheel specs" ?

I'm planning on 19 x 8.5 ET18 rims on the front this summer.

Think 225's will be safe enough? I'm dropped on H&R Sport Springs + SP Lowering Perches.

I'm lowered 1.8" in the front over stock suspension. I'm running my stock rims for the winter tires I have right now. 16x7's with 215's on them and I mean they already tuck.

I have slight negative camber already.
8.5 is small offsets are better but I would start with something bigger like a 9 or 9.5 for the front

fair enough i wont have as much stretch as you. do you find the handling ok? or do u not drive it quick due to your stance??

i dont really want rubbing tbh
The handling is still fine I'm on FBO and remember I'm on wider tires then most of the non "hellaflush guys".

And the previous post wasnt cause you have smaller wheels just didnt want you to get mixed up by what Gunda said so it was just a comparison.

Yea I know my wheel specs aren't as aggressive as yours for sure, but there aren't many manufacturers that sell wheels with aggressive offsets and sizes off the shelf lol. Only way is to order a custom made setup, which just isn't in everyones budget. My wheels specs are for a M3 and the pricing was right for my budget

Maybe ill throw in some 18mm spacers and then talk hella aggressive lool :P

I perfer wider tires. on my next set imma run 245 on 9J front and 275 or 285 on 10J rear. Wider tires give you better traction and braking/handling

[quote=Tyso335;13661564]i no there are many people that dont like this look but i am running a little bit of stretch due to putting my original tyres onto my new wider wheels which are 8.5j front and 9.5j rear. so at the moment im running 225/35/19 on the front and 255/30/19 on the rear. it gives a little stretch look which i like.

i need new front and am not sure wether to try 215 and have more stretch and do the same on the rear.

has anyone done this and has any pics to show me, and will this make the handling of my car a lot worse?

im thinking about stretching them more so i can lower the car more and space the wheels out a lot more.... the original tires is far from stretch at all man. if you go 215 the fronts will have 0 stretch and the rears will have 35mm which is alil under 15.5 mm of stretch each sideso it would be a nice setup with some poke but if you run a pretty conservative setup i would run a 225/35 for some nice clean stretch. im running a 215/40/18 all around 9 front 10 rear

^^^ the problem is you used a 40 series sidewall 215/40. When you didn't need all that stretch and can have just as much clearance and cleaner look with a 235/35 or what I use on my front a 245/35 on the 10"
