Hi, I intend to go for 18/19 setup for BBS LM on my NSX. I know that the setup for 17/18 is
17x7.5 +38 (F) with 215/40/17
18x9 +42 (R), with 265/35/18
Will this fit without rubbing,
18x8 +35 (F) with 215/35/18
19x10 +40 (R) with 265/30/19
Thanks.

18x8 +35 is on the outer limit and will rub on the outside of the fender-liner depending on how low you are and how much camber. I would recommend a +38 to +40 to avoid rubbing.

19x10 +40 would be fine (you could go down to +30 without rubbing). 265/30/19 works better on a 19x9.5. 275/30/19 is probably a better choice for a 19x10.

I have a stock camber. Will the front extend beyond the fender? I have the TEIN adjustable shocks. Will this help. Below are pics. of the current rims 17/18 on this high. Thanks.

Below is an 18x8 +35 with a 215/35/18 Falken FK451 (which run narrow - note tire has a "stretched" look)

This is an 18x8 +38 with a 215/35/18 Kumho SPT (which are sized normally - not as stretched as above)

The lower the offset on a given width rim (say +30 or +25 on an 8" wide rim) the more the wheel will stick out past the fender.


To spice it up a bit, below is a 18x7.5 +30 (effectively an 18x8 +36) with the same 215/35/18 Kumho SPT (note the tire is more squared off, and not as stretched. . as it is on an 18x8)

I got it now. Very well explain.Thankyou very much. :smile:
 
I'm running a 18x8, +36 offset and I agree the looks has the stretched look when running a 215/35/18 front tire.

However my car is SLAMMED and does NOT rub at all at any speed.....


here's a picture:
