Offset to avoid rubbing on a concave wheel

Hey guys, I'm looking to run 285-35-19 Michelin pilot super sports on all 4 corners. Car will be lowered 1.5", with Koni oranges, BMR LCA with bracket, panhard bar and camber bolts.

I am predominantly set to buy SVE drifts 19x9.5s, but I'm exploring other brands too. I wanna get that deep concave look you mostly see on rear wheels with a staggered setup. Really digging 5 spoke CV3/KMC district/Niche Milan look.

Here's what I'm wondering about:

1) is concavety depended on offset of a wheel? Or is it more of a manufacturer and design thing?

2) should I go with lower or higher offset to avoid any rubbing issues for tire size I'm going with? While still being able to keep a deep concave look on all 4 wheels

I'm super curious as well. I pretty much have the same suspension set up with a 5 spoke +35 19x10 and am wondering how wide I can go with a 1.5 drop.

Are you running 19x10 on all 4 corners? Or if you're staggered?

Yeah, my 19x10's are +35 offset. How much room do you have left back there?

I'd like to run a 305/30/19 MT street II. You think those 10mm would push me out past the fender? Do Mickeys run wide?

Typically the term backspacing is used vice offset even though there both related. You didn't say if you have Brembo brakes. These have very large calipers especially on the outside and can hit some wheel shapes. backspacing places the wheel in the fender well. the shape of the spokes (or style) will determine if the spokes will clear the calipers. Typically wheels with large areas of rim showing will either have to have large concavity or small backspacing. Large backspacing moves the wheel toward the fender. The rear brake configuration will allow wheels that have a design which will shows more rim. The fronts aren't as forgiving.

Non Brembo bro. I was aware of the great info you provided, but thank you just the same. I wish some people would chime in with their set ups. I just would like to know the optimal sizes as 19" tires have a lot of strange sizes. I personally don't like going with a 30 sidewall. In my opinion it's just too much wheel.

I'm currently running stock track pack wheels, 9in, with 255/40-19 on front and 285/40-19's on back. No rub and they fit the 15in 6piston Brembos and 13.8in rear brakes I have. I know you are looking for aftermarket wheels, but this is just for info.

There shouldnt be a problem running 305s on the rear if youre lowered 1.5". However, did you check overall diameter of 305/30/19
tire vs your stock? I believe 305/35 would be a better choice, if you can find that size.

PS: what kind of wheels do you have?

I have not checked the difference in size. I will be running these STR 607's.

These are the rears obviously. The fronts are less concave.

Hmm you should be fine on a non brembo car! KMC districts (albeit 20") run similar offset on a 10" wide wheel. LMR says they will have rubbing issues and won't clear brembos on a lowered car (1.5" +)

I hope so bro. These wheels are designed to fit the brembo's if I had them. A huge selling point to me as I will be purchasing them in the future. I just want to be 100% sure on clearance before I pull the trigger on rubber.

Yeah that's the tire that caught my eye. Has enough tread for the street, yet is grippy for the 20 or so passes I'll make over the spring/summer.

It's this exact tire right here. Just watched the video and it says it's designed for auto's? I have the 6 speed. That mean these "should" be off limits or...?

Are you talking about this guy? http://m.summitracing.com/cart/add/MTT-3723R

Auto and 6 speed or any transmission for what that matter doesn't have anything to with tires. Its the overall diameter you should be looking at. Gotta stay within 3% of stock specs. Just Google tire diameter calculator, plug in your stock and aftermarket dimensions. It will give you all the info you need.

PS: what's your intended use with this tire?

Yes, there she blows, that's the one. 305/35/19. My mistake for some reason I thought it was a 30 sidewall.

Well, once the sand/snow are gone, the car becomes my full time DD up until about late October early November the latest. Like I said I usually make around 20 passes or so at the (somewhat) local drag strip an hour away (all highway). I have a 14 mile round trip commute to work and back. And in between that it's quick jaunts around town. That descriptive enough? Lol thanks a lot for you help bro btw. So calculate stock tire measurements to those mickeys?

Also another thing to consider, I only put on 6300 miles since I bought the car new back in feb 14'...

Lol that's indeed descriptive enough! 305-35-19 is within 3% of your stock diameter, you're safe. These tire are absolute no go on wet roads, something to look into if you don't have a second car. And if you don't, I'd suggest Michelin pilot super sports.. Pretty much around same price range if not more, and they hook like a mofo!

Are you planning on going ET streets on all 4 corners though?

Ok. Well that's great to know that those diameters will be a safe bet. I do have a second car, but, that's not to say while I'm at work it can't rain and then I have a crap show on my hands on he way home...

I wasn't planning on going DR's all the way around. Maybe some MT sport comps up front in a 245 or 255 variety? That seem doable? And if not, do you have any other suggestions since you know my basic needs and day to day driving?

I'm doing a bit of research and found that the overall tire diameter is almost spot to the overall diameter of my OEM wheel/tire. Only difference being about 2.5-3" of width lol. I'm assuming that could be a problem?

Does your commute to and back from work involve hwy, or just city driving? As long as you're really careful around turns/windy roads and are granny driving it, shouldn't be too much of a problem. But yeah if hwy, then no go for sure. It says right on product page that these are only meant for dry pavement.

On the other hand, you can run MT street comps (255/40 and 305/35) on all 4 corners. And keep a second set just for the drag strip if you can afford it. Not worth the agony bro if your car decides to do 180 on a rainy day. If that's not an option, look into Michelin super sports, Bridgestone RE-11, Toyo Proxes T-1, Bridgestone s-04 pole, or Nitto NT-05. I'd personally go with Michelin's, they're best out of the lot in my opinion. Shelby guys swear by how they! Not to mention the 30k mile warranty (or 15K if you're staggered) they come with.


PS: width is not a problem, since you're going with a wider tire. Overall diameter is what dictates a good fit lol. So yeah you're safe bro

It does involve highway, so I suppose you're right. I'll have to check into all those great suggestions you provided. I can't seem to find the perfect balance, but I know I'm not alone. I guess I want my cake and to eat it as well lol. If I'm not going with a DR, what's an optimal size? 285-295? I'm just wanting the most contact patch possible, while keeping functionality (no fender rolling etc). I'm also hoping for the flush look, no sunken wheels.

The nitto NT05's were also a strong second. Wondering if those would be a good choice?

What's throwing me off is the huge jump in sizes when it comes to 19" tires. It's 275, then bam 305 lol. At least that's the way it is for the mickeys and nittos I was looking at. I know it's an off size, so I expect it, I just want to get the right size.

I don't think tire size should matter if you're going for a DR or street tire. I mean yeah, the wider the better.. but upto a certain width. How often does it rain where you live? And when you say you like to go to track, what are you referring to? Quarter mile runs, or driving around corners in a circuit? Or both?

For a good street tire, you just can't beat performance of mickey thompson street comp for the price you pay. I mean sure there are better tires out there as I pointed it out to you, it all depends on your application.

1) If you can afford a second set of tires (someone on SVTP is selling ET streets), go with street comps 255/40/19 and 305/35/19. Or continental DW if they make a 305/35. Give them about 100 miles or so to the glue off of new tires, they will hook crazy after that! Heck performanceplus tire had MT street comps 305/35 on sale for $169, 285/35 for $188, and 255/40 for $174 just last month :/

2) If option A doesn't work, go with any one of the performance tires I suggested. Personally I'd go with Michelin Super Sports over any other tire, just because you get better overall performance within same price range. This is the tire you want if you're planning on boosting your DD.

3) Nitto NT-05 wont be too good in rain either. Not to mention they're equally pricey.

I'd say precipitation is "average" here in Springfield MA. We got hammered this winter though. And I'm talking strictly strip. This car only sees daily duty and the drag strip. I remember when I was first looking for tires a ways back, the street comps caught my eye as well. They're a decent tire you say?

Ahh see you wanna have a cake and eat it too lol. I'm fairly certain you will be safe going with a 305 MT street comp tire on rear. Given that you're still n/a, there shouldn't be serious concerns hooking from a dig.

But here's not so good news: I just did a quick internet search, 305 street comps are only available in 20" size. Good thing is 20" tire are slightly cheaper than their 19" counterparts.

Toyo R888s are mainly an autoX tire, no go in rain in my opinion. At the end of a day it all depends on your budget. If you can afford a second set of wheels and tires, def go with MT street comp and ET streets II. If not, then any of the tires I suggested before should serve you well.

Thanks for your help Bazinga. Still not quite sure what I'm going to do but you've provided me with a wealth of knowledge

No worries man. Just don't over complicate things - see what your budget is and go from there. Too many choices in your head wouldn't help worth a dime .

As has been said tire selection for rear 19's is poor. 2013/14 gt500's use 19's on front and 20's on rear. This is why I'm widening my Track Pac wheels to 10.5in so I can run 325/30-19's which appears to be a good diameter with several manufacturers.

Not sure I would run drag radials in rain and of course winter.
