    OK guys, let's post them up with all the details...
    Brand
    Model
    Wheel Diameter
    Wheel Width
    Wheel offset
    Tire size
    Tire brand

    Limit each post to 3 pictures and limit all comments. This should be an informational thread for everyone to use. Maybe we can pm questions directly to the poster if more details are needed? This way it can keep the thread limited to information for others.

    md-18,
    Just bought new Hankook v12 evo's 255-35-20's for these rims and these tires do rub on "big" bumps. Originally I had Falken 452's in the same size on the rim and they didn't rub. The Falken's sidewall bowed out to the rim as to where the Hankooks stick out past the rim. Not happy about that since I did a lot of research on tires before I bought these. Great tire, very quiet, good handling...just didn't expect the sidewall difference! More than likely will buy new rims with a different offset to pull the wheels back in a bit. Then they should be fine. These were just an old set of wheels I had in my barn from long ago so buying new ones is what I had planned on doing anyway.
    But if I could start all over...I would not go over a 245-35-20. That's more than enough tire for this car.
    Not sure what the offset is on these rims...but it's too much.

    Here are a couple I took yesterday after installing my new fogs. I had 22"s on my last car, loved the look but they were just too much of a hassle. It's nice not to having to worry about every speedbump or driveway curb, plus the ride is much smoother as well.

    Bremmer BR05 wheels

    Specs:
    19x8
    +45mm offset
    Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires (245/40/19 all around)

    I know, the 4x4 look is absurd (to me at least). Ordered H&R springs for the car and should be here early next week.

    In my opinion, a +45 offset with these dimension wheels are absolutely perfect. Sit slightly inside the fender wheels but not too far back.

    Enjoy!
