Tire fitment question

Hi everyone, I am looking to buy some 19x9 wheels with a +42 offset and want to run 275/40/19's on them on all four corners if possible. Anybody have this setup or know if it will fit up front? It looks like it would be really tight but may work. Thanks

You wont have any issue running those. Why are you deciding on running a 19x9 rather than a staggered setup or 19x9.5?

There's a guy on another forum running 20x10's on all four corners and 305 tires, I think he may have a +42 offset

Do you think i should run the 275's all around on 19x9 or would it be better to get the staggered set and run 245/45/19 up front and 275/20/19 out back (they are exactly the same height is why i chose these two sizes)

Honestly I would go for the Staggered setup. I wouldn't go 245/45 up front 255/40 is a little better and should be about the same price. Also take a look at 285/35 for the rears. If you're gonna go staggered that's a pretty good size and the sidewalls will be very similar in size.

i want to get continental extreme dws and they are not offered in a 255/40, and i was a little worried the 285 would stick out to far.

I don't know that offset of the 19x10's, maybe you'll be able to run a square setup of that? I would buy two and test fit before you buy the 19x9's.

the offset for the 10 is listed as 47.5, i considered that too. My dilemma arises because it is far cheaper to buy them as a set of 4 (they basically throw the tpms and reset tool in for free)

I'm running 275 on 19x9's all around right now, but I'm actually in the process of getting a staggered setup from jayman33

Levittbrown?

I would get the staggered setup if that's the case. Its a dang good deal they have on that setup.

Oh cool, grabber do you happen to know what offset you have and could you comment on how close the fronts come to rubbing (there is a bolt on the strut that seems like it would be very close)

Eh, not sure of the offset, if someone knows the brembo wheel offset then that's what I have. Are you talking about the bolt that holds the rotor and hub assembly together to the strut?

The bolt that looks like it would be closest is on the strut tower and it is connected to a brace that goes down to the front sway bar. If you are running factory brembo's i cant imagine the offset is much different from factory laguna seca wheels.

On my factory Brembo 19x9" wheels, I'm running 275/35-19 front and 285/35-19 rear tires. No clearance issues or increase in bumpsteer, despite what some people claimed I would experience. Sits perfect, and my overall traction for launching and handling is GREATLY improved!

I'm running 275/40/19's on RTR 19x9.5 rims with +33 offset which is .35 inches less than your +42 offset so you should be fine.

If you put street tires on for normal day to day driving Nitto Motivos allow side to side rotation. I run this setup so I can have staggered and still rotate. When I drag I throw on the slicks.

His offset is +48 on all four, he said tires rubs plastic in wheel wells but that's because he's running 305's up front

Just a quick update and a thank you for those of you who took the time to answer my questions. I ended up getting the boss 302s wheels in a staggered fit, 19x9 & 19x10. Tires are nitro info 245/40 and 285/30. While I had the car up on jackstands i took the opportunity to bolt on some steeda lower control arms, which i really like so far in my short test drive. I also installed a steeda cai and the 93 tune to go with it, which really woke the car up. Here is a picture of the wheels (please overlook the fact the car is filthy, snowed a good bit of last week and more on the way this week).

Nope. I run it. More grip, better handling. How is that bad?

Depends on the tire used. It fits fine on mine, as shown.
