    Wheel/Tire Size and Offset. Combo's known to work.

    There has been a ton of threads lately about what wheels will fit, what offset works etc. I know its hard to find in the wheel/tire thread as a lot of them are just pictures.

    I am going to start this thread so people can post What wheel size, tire size and offset they are running and works. (also if you are lowered or not.)

    I will update the first post as much as I can.

    PLEASE DO NOT POST IN THIS THREAD WITH QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS. SPECS ONLY TO KEEP THIS CLEAN. I will delete any other post.

    Format like this.

    Tire Brand: Cooper Zeon RS3-A
    Tire Size: 245/40/19 (front & rear)
    Suspension: Eibach Pro Springs (revised)
    Rubbing: Slight inside driver front when fully locked to the left. Happened before being dropped though.
    Ride Quality: Close to stock SX on all but harshest bumps. Rides very good IMO. Handles corners fantastic now with virtually no body roll. Will update after they settle if this changes.

    CIn60ragfk's Setup:
    Wheels: Tsw Mallory 5

    no rubbing

    MDJammin's Setup on Sonata:
    Volk GTS
    19x9.5 et43 Front
    19x9.5 et 43 + 20mm Spacer Rear
    235/35/19 Hankook V12's
    D2 Coilovers
    Front stock camber - Clears fenders - Inner lower rim lip rubs lower control arm only turning left at full lock
    Rear requires -4* camber - Fenders rolled out 3mm to avoid damage
    Rear Notes - Tire is still fully on ground, camber wear is present but not extreme, driving alone it hardly ever rubs, add one person OR a full tank of gass and it rubs occasionally, add a 3rd person it rubs just from hard acceleration, 4th person is NOT doable.

    Nikko's setuo:
    Wheels: Gen Coupe R-spec wheels
    Wheel size front: 19 x 8 | ET30 | 225/40/19
    Wheel size rear: 19 x 8.5 | ET30 | 245/40/19
    Suspension: Megan Springs 1.5" all around.
    So far no rub. Even with 200lbs (old wheels and other junk) in the back.

    So far, no rubbing as of yet but the rear is really close. It seems like if I have the car loaded down, I might rub. I rubbed with 245/40/19 in the rear when I had three people with like 50 lbs of cargo in the car. Not sure with 245/35/19 yet though.
