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.

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.

19" Genesis Coupe wheels

Front wheel size : 19X8 et 35
Front tire size : 225/40/19

Rear wheel size : 19X8.5 et 35
Rear tire size : 245/35/19

Suspension : Eibach springs

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.

My old setup

22x8.5- 40 offset with 245/30/22 tires. (235 would better)

NO RUB, Full turn lock to lock
Ride quality- like stock



If your going to drop it with 22's it's coilovers or nothing....springs will give a rub. (99% positive)
My car on coils.
