hey guys
i picked up 19x9 and 19x10.5
Are the tires sizes 225/40 and 245/40 considered stretched for these rims? i have a 350z and looking to have the rims sticking out of the fender. +1 offset with spacers.
Lowered enough that the sidewall touches the fenders

Sup guys, I have a kouki S14 and I think I'm buying 18x9.5 +12 wheels. I've talked to a few people and from what I got, I'm going to have to run -2 camber and get my fenders rolled. Now the only concern I have is if I'm going to be rubbing on the inner wheel wells? I just want the wheels to be flush with the fenders, Have and inch and a half distance between my fenders and wheels and not have to run negative camber, it's my daily.

You should run 35 series side walls with 19s...and yes they'll be stretched. Outside of rolling your fenders and lowering the car you should be good with just bolting those to your Z.

SPL, Fortune Auto, or Parts Shop Max. They all use quality products and have a nice range of adjustment, but SPL is a nicer product overall then PSM or FA.

What sized tires were you going to run? You will need to beat out your inner fender wells up front, that's just what you have to do if you run wide wheels and slam your car. You can run a 225/40 or 215/40 up front to keep the hammering to a minimum, but unless you just painted your engine bay you aren't hurting anything if you go to town with a sledge hammer on the front back and top of your wheel well. I recommend removing the fenders if you aren't very accurate at hammering.

i used this website to calculate the stretch
Online Wheel & Tyre Fitment calculator. Offset and Tyre Stretch
going from 245 to 215 reduces the diamter around .8"..-_- (which mean .8" drop) is this right?
if it's true, i gotta go 40 profile

Oh, if you want a gap like that I would recommend getting a less aggressive wheel and running square tires. Get some 18X9 +20 or something like that and run 255/35s. Negative camber is apart of a factory alignment. If you're worried about tire wear you should be more concerned with toe settings. Having -2 camber or even -2.5 camber will not significantly wear your tires down. Just keep and eye on your tires and get them rotated to keep wear even.

I thought you wanted to run 225s and 245s?

You didn't specify width, but I believe grids in 18" only came in 9.5" +15.

With that said, 9.5 +15 will fit & they will clear the coilovers. However, the only way you can be low with that size is stretched tires with a slight roll, slight pull, and camber.

Matter of fact, here's a pic of Grids 18X9.5" +15 on a S14:

He's running 225/40 up front and 245/40 in the rear.
You could try running a monster stretch with 215/40 all around or a less extreme stretch with 225/40 all around if you want to get low.

Depends how low you are. If you slammed a small spacer will help like a 10 mm cuz 25mm with a stretch tire is gonna be a little sunk.

Depends on what you are willing to do because 10mm is a effective +15mm which is a roll and small pull, 15mm spacer is about the same but bigger pull and a little bit more camber.

A 10 +25 will not clear your coilovers up front. You'll need to space it out around 13mm to clear your coils...that will make it a bit of a bitch to fit up front. S13s don't like wheels over 9.5 up front without tubs or widebody. You can definitely do it, but it'll take some work.

A 10 +25 with a 235 requires a slight pull on S13s out back, so you will not need spacers....unless you're trying to run like neg 4-5 camber.

A 9 +15 with a 215 fits just about perfect with -3 camber and a roll. The 10 +25 fits 3mm further out then that...plus a 235 is wider.

Do the 9.5 up front with a 5mm spacer and 10 out back with no spacer. 225/40s and 235/40s for a medium stretch, and 215/40s and 225/40s for a more aggressive stretch.

That should clear your front coils no problem and allow for decent clearance. Go for the larger tires if you don't want to slam it too much.

Do you have a zenki or kouki S14?

EX: Q: Will a 18x10 +18 fit on an s13?
A: Yes with some camber and stretched tire. Suggested setup 225/40 about 2.3* of camber maybe less with small pull.

LOL, please tell me you're serious.


24s will NOT fit on a S13, they barely 'fit' on a 2000 Mustang, lol.

I'd say 21/20 stagger (bigger up front), lower it till the fender is at the wheel lip all around. Then ride in style. Mission accomplished.

with a slight tuck and stretched tires, it can happen

I can't tell how much of a pull the couple on the front page has. But it doesn't look like much. I've seen a hatch that was higher off the ground with the same wheel specs and he had to pull the fenders about ~25mm. The hatch is running a 10mm spacer but let's imagine the car without one, will that kind of pull be necessary?

Generally, do coupes have wider wheel wells? Or am I trippin out?





what the heck are the wheel and tire specs on that hatch?! its flawless. seems to be semi functional and still flush.
