Hi all,

Looking to order a set of XXR 555's in the following sizes.
Front: 18x8.5 et35 or et25
Rear: 18x10 et25 (only available offset)

Will the rears fit with non-rolled fenders? I would like to keep the body stock. And would et25 fit on the front or is it wiser to go with 35?
No chance of the rears fitting. +25 on the fronts will bring the wheel to being flush with the fender

Flush is what im after so the fronts would be perfect with +25. Could the rears fit with a rolled/cut fender? Or should i really look into getting +40 or more offset for the rear at 10j?

If you're going to cut/roll the rear fenders then you can go with a 10" wheel with a +29 offset. A 10" +40 will be sunken in but will clear the factory rear fender lips.

Thank you for help and insight radride!

How about a 9.5 with et25 or et30? Those are available for me and would come pretty close I think, I just dont have the first hand experience yet with mk4's to know 100% for sure.

That won't work either without rolling your rear lips.

Hey everyone,

New to Supra here and looking to get some new wheels. I've read through this post quite a bit but just wanted to make sure I'm good. Looking to get the new Enkei GTC02s in the following sizes:

Front:
18x9.5 with +40 offset - 265/35 tires

Rear:
18x10.5 with +45 offset - 285/35 tires

Let me know your thoughts, the car is currently sitting on some old school Blitz TechnoSpeed Z2s which I'll be selling soon.

FYI your Blitz wheels are going to be better quality. They'll be snapped up pretty quickly.

The wheels you listed will fit without fender rolling. BTW, you need to go with a 285/30/18. The 285/35 is going to be too tall but I don't think that size exists.

Good to know, I think I'll give the Blitz wheels another shot. Car is on stock suspension right now and it just doesn't look right. Coilovers on the way, I'm sure it'll fit better. Thanks for the quick reply.

Disagree with the recommendation for 285/30/18 tires for the rear. If you can find them, the tires are 24.8 inches in height, whereas the 265/35/18s are 25.3 inches in height. So, the inquirer would have a car with a reverse rake if he remained at stock height. Unless he has coilovers, he could not correct for this problem. Even with coilovers, it would be very difficult to do so. A 285/35/18 tire is perfect for his needs, IMO, and has an overall height of 25.9 inches.

Here's an example on my car of what I'm talking about:

Hello again, I'm finally in the market for some new/used wheels. I don't mind rolling/trimming the rear fender some, but I do not want to shave it flush. I also don't really want to modify the front fenders.

How would these work:

Front:
18x9.5 with +38 offset - 265/35 or 275/35 tires

Rear:
18x11 with +45 offset - 295/30 or 305/30 315/30 tires

They are the TE37 Saga S-Plus wheels. I am also unsure if they will clear the stock TT brakes.


Thanks!

I’m running TE37 18x9.5 +35 255/35 and 18x10.5 +40 285/35
trimmed the rear fenders slightly, clears
rubs the fender liner slightly on hard turns in front; trying to sort that out, might switch to 245
clears stock NA brakes

Looks great Ken! Also on TE37 here, 18x9.5 +35 with 255/35 Michelin up front.
Wondering what size you're running in front? And any fender/liner/alignment mods?
Trying to sort out front end rub on hard turns on the fender liner, and looks like you're a little lower than me.
Thanks..

I never once had any rubbing issues on the front with any of the wheel and tire setups I ran.

Run 265 with same spec wheels up front. I just had to remove the highest bolts on the liner to the fender.

My front wheel is 18 x 9.5 +40. Tire size is 245/40/18, IIRC. I like my tires to be square to the extent possible (plus the Michelin MPSS) run big. 9.5 x 25.4 equals 241.3 mm on a 245 mm tire and has a overall height of 25.7 inches.

Coupled with my 285/35 rears, with an overall height of 25.9 inches, I can get the car to "sit" exactly like I want it with my HKS coilovers. I have no front fender or rear quarter panel mods, other than the 12 o'clock bolt at the top of the front wheel well already being removed when I purchased the car. Hope this helps.

Anyone running TSW tremblants 18x9.5 ET20? They were on a 350z that I sold but I have small 245/45 tires on them. If I went with 265/30 would I have to still roll my fenders?
