Default Tires, Wheels and Where to buy?

Hello all! What a way to make my first post, thanks for having me.

After some research I have come up with this wheel setup. My questions are; Does anyone run this setup, and what is your suspension setup like.

Stock, current wheel setup:

Wheels: 17x7.5 (20 offset)
Tires: 225x50x17

Planned setup:
Wheels: 19x9 (0 offset)
Tires: 245x35x19

With this setup, my suspension clearance should be the same, wheels will stick out roughly 1.2" more, and wheelwell clearance should be the same as stock.

Any thoughts? Anyone willing to share their setups, even if its something different.

Also, where does veryone on here get their wheels and tires? All sites I found really don't offer anything aggresive in offset. Most aggresive offsets I see is 20-25....

Thanks,

Something is incorrect, your numbers, math or information. You should try using a wheel calculator for more accuracy. Websites will have one or ask for your make and model for compatibility.

What kind of car is this going on? We offer full wheel and tire packages here as well as custom built to order wheels like forgestar. These can be built into any offset.

I decided to go with the following setup,

Rear: 19x10x25offset
Front: 19x9x18offset

Not sure on wheel and combo/suspension yet.

Nice! Those should look really good on your car, did you go with any of the special bespoke program colors?

Mod, i went with the exact wheels in pic.


0 offset wheels were just hard to find. Most required to be custom made which almost doubles the price.
