Quick wheel offset question, please help.

Locally I have a chance to buy a set of new Forgestar F14s for a good price in a few hours but I would like to know if the following would work. I have a new 2014 GT and plan on lowering it about an inch in the front and an inch and a half in the rear maybe a bit lower. The Forgestars are 18x9.5 with a 36 offset. I would run 275/40/18 tires all around. I do not want any rubbing at all. Based on some research I did with offset calculators it looks like this would work but I would like some opinions. All help appreciated. Thanks!

Call Paul at Howey Industries. He knows his stuff. I just ordered F14's in staggered 20 x 9.5 and 20 x 11, and I plan to run 275/35 and 305/35, respectively. He walked me through lowering options and offsets.

I have Shelby CS40 20 inch rims with 285/30/20 on the back and have no problems with rubbing. The offset is +45 so your +36 has no issues at all.

U have plenty of space. I been looking at 19x12 offset +13 but i did the math and it comes out with 5.5 inch lip. I think i might do 15-20 offset. And i want to stretch a 295 tire on it even though it would fit better with a 304.8 tire on.

Quick wheel offset question, please help.

+13 offset is how much the hub is in relation to the center of the wheel. If my +45 offset is fine fore 285 then you will be fine. Stock brembo rims are +42.

+13 is 13mm further out towards the outside of the car. So if +45mm is clearing the fender well then +13 will be fine.

And we're talking about a 10 inch rim not a 12 inch or even an 11 inch

Actually you're right. I was attempting to post after having 3 shots, 4 crown and cokes, and 3 shiner bocks. Lol

+13mm (I drunk calculated this lol) would push the outer rim further out towards fender well. That's a whole +30mm more than mine and the stock brembo rims. Yeah... thanks for catching this. It would have sucked for you if you bought it and horrible of me to kinda of caused it. Lol
