I see ALOT of supra with wiiiddde asss tires, I have 265 in the rear on 18's and they catch the inner lip badly, partly because the susp. needs replaced, but still, I mean How can you guys fit ridiculously sized tired or deeeeeep dish rims.sorry if its a newb question.

roll/trim your fender lip, get coilovers, and get wheels with the proper offset for huge fitment. for an 18x10 to 18x11 rear you should be looking for wheels in the mid +40's to the mid +50's offset-wise.

They said the same thing, that there is a chance the paint would chip off.....and it did. No one wants to do it around here.

I have a rolled one on my Black and cut the other on my Alpine. I also sealed it with a good sealer with no problems x's few years. If you get it rolled with patients with the eastwood roller at least, you'll be fine. Some even use a heat gun (mild) while rolling to prevent cracking. Tons of users on here with rolled/cut fenders

If you can't fit 265's even with the stock fenders then the offset of your wheels is too low. you can fit up to 295's with stock fenders with the right offsets

Your wheels do not fit correctly if you are catching fender with 265's.

If you want to run nice and wide rubber you will need coilovers and rolled rear fenders; then follow some of these sizings:

18x12 rim in 55mm offset with a 1mm spacer, 335/30R18 tires
18x11.5 rim in 50mm or 55 offset; 315/30R18 tires
17x11.5 in 50mm offset; 315/35R17 tires

Up front you will need to remove one fender liner screw, and slightly bend a tab with your fingers:

18x10.5 rim in 55mm offset; 1mm spacer, 295/30R18
18x10.5 rim in 50mm offset; 285/35R18

This may not work with out some work, but I have seen 18x10.5 in 55mm offset, 1mm spacer; 305/30R18 up front.

Hope this helps

FWIW im running 18 X10 on the rear with a +22 offset (275/35) and they only just rub a tiny amount down the odd driveway - my car doesnt even have coilovers so if it were a touch lower the wheels would camber in enough to make the rub disappear.

my gaurds are rolled only.

Fantastic info. Do you know how it would change with a 19" rim? Same numbers but tire sidewalls with 25 instead?

how would the car handle with 295"s at front? also any specific numbers for 19" wheels Thanks
The car will handle great, what you need to keep in mind is balance. if you have a lot more grip in the rear you will have to battle some understeer issues. All of which can be corrected with alignment, spring rates, and damping.

** Keep in mind on these tire sizes that I make the following assumptions: The rear fenders are rolled, you have coilovers all around, you are not afraid to hammer the inner rear tire well as much as .25 of an inch, the front top fender liner screw is removed, and you have bent the front top fender liner tab up with your fingers. **


For 19 in wheels:

Front:

19x10 55mm offset; 275/30R19
19x10 55mm offset; 285/25R19

Rear

(You really will need a 25 series tire fpr any tire wider than 285, you might get away with a 30 series with in a 295/30R19, but I think it likely will rub the spring seat on the coilover.

19x12 55mm offset w/1mm spacer, 335/25R19
19x11.5 50mm offset; 325/25R19
19x11.5 50mm offset; 315/25R19
19x11 50mm offset; 305/25R19
19x11 50mm offset; 295/25R19
19x10.5 45mm offset; 285/30R19

18x9 +15 with 245/40 up front here - light roll of the guards and removal of the screw that was mentioned above was all i needed, no rubbing at all!
That not a very good fitment at all; are you SURE your offest is +15? The wheel and tire will stick out past the fender. You really need a 40mm offset up front; even with a narrow 9in wheel.

(Not to mention 245's are only 10mm wider that stock, and your tire diameter is 25.7 inches, you really want to keep it at about 25 inches up front and no more than 26 in the rear. To prvent rubbing on a tire that tall up front you would have to modifiy thing much more than I am talking about here.)

The moral of the story is, if you are going to buy wheels, buy wheels in the correct offsets, and make the most of your investemnt.

I'm positive...i ordered the wheels myself. the other option was +30 which wouldnt have matched the rear and quite frankly looked like ass. +40 is far too conservative on the front IMO. yes the wheel/tire sits a few mm outside the guard but as i said i dont have coilovers yet so once i drop the front a little more it will sit perfectly.

(Not to mention 245's are only 10mm wider that stock, and your tire diameter is 25.7 inches, you really want to keep it at about 25 inches up front and no more than 26 in the rear.

Are you saying that a 18/40 profile is too large for the front? that i should maybe run a 35? as i said, i have done MINIMAL gaurd mods (rolled the lip with the tiniest flare (not even noticable unless you look under the guard) and my tires dont rub at all...not through hard corners, nothing...and i drive on some pretty crappy, bumpy roads :)
