Not even close to flush. Depending on the wheel, VOLK has different faces that will allow better brake clearances. Make sure you select wisely.

Gotcha - as much as I would like to get some Volks, they just don't seem to make the best widths/offsets anymore for the Supra. I think I'm going to just go with the Forgestars in the fitment you recommended above. Thanks again!

So they also have a set of Volks TE37 in the following:

18" x 9" +34
18" x 10" +34

Using the ideal offsets you provided earlier (18x10 +42 and 18x11 +48) as my baseline - if I'm understanding this calculator correctly, it says the front 18x9 +34 would be 5mm (<1/4") retracted versus the 18x10 +42 and that the rears would basically be the same (would sit out 1mm further)

I'm trying to read up and figure this out on my own so I don't have to keep bugging you @Radride

Thanks!

Close. The new fronts will be sunken into the fender 6mm more than the ideal fitment. The rear will be identical.

Is it possible to machine the inner face of a wheel to move it inwards a bit ?

I have a set of Enkei PF01 - rears are 18x10.5 +38mm offset. They have 285/35/18 on them now, which is a stretched look, which looks ass (to me, others like the stretched look). Definitely want wider. I can get 295/35/18 which looks like it will fit fine, 305/30/18 doesn't seem to exist, and 315/30/18 seems like it would impact the fender

247890


So I was wondering if it would be possible to machine down the inner face of the wheel hub, say 4-5mm, to bring the offset to +42/43mm. There's plenty of room on the inner side - I have Tein coilovers. That would tuck the wheel outer face a bit more in line with the fender, and allow the 315 to NOT impact it under compression.

Would that compromise the integrity of the wheel though ?

Just talked to Enkei ... Unofficially, taking 3mm off the mounting pad is no problem. So that means, will a 315/30/18 tire on a 18x10.5+41mm fit cleanly ?

Selling my BBS's and new looking for a new set of wheels. I am lowered maybe 1.5" all around with stock fenders and plan to keep it that way. No roll, no cut, no pull. Want to leave them stock. Cars a TT with the bigger brakes. My BBS wheels were 18x8 et36 and 18x9 et36. And clears everything fine. Was running a 235/40 up front and a 265/35 out back. No rubbing issues. Now I am wanting to go wider. Would a 18x10 et 50ish or et45 with a 285 cause me any rubbing? Will a Work CR Kiwami with 18x8.5 et45ish clear the front brakes still?

If you want a nice looking setup get 18x9 +36 front and 18x10 +45 rear if you want to run a 285. If you want to run a 275 or narrow running 285, get a 10 +42.

Also, you can't get the WORK CR Kiwanmi's because they don't come in the size and offsets you're looking for. They're a one piece wheel. I wouldn't spend that kind of money and not get the offsets I want to run. Have a look at the attached chart:


BTW, your current wheels are smaller than the stock wheels on the supra.

Yeah. I know they are. But these were off of my s2000 so they were fitment for it. But yeah. I just don't want to do any type of fender modification. No tab bending or anything even being lowered where I'm at.

Ordered these back in january, between tires being on back order for 2 months and Work Wheels having a super long lead time, finally got to throw these bad boys on today.

Ordered based on Rad's expert fitment advice and researching this thread for years, i think they came out great. Would have preferred to go with a 30 profile tire as ive had a 315/30 on my previous supra and i think it looked perfect... but I want the best possible chance at putting down all my power so opted for a 305/35 profile this time.

Front: 18x10 +42 R disk - 265/35/18
Rear: 18x11.5 +48 A disk - 305/35/18

Looks great. I'm glad the fitment worked out.

Picked up a set of 18x10 et45 rear wheels. What is the ideal tire size for non pulled or rolled fenders?

Was that rolled fenders?
