I'm buying a used set of f14 I'm not very familiar with offsets, the wheels are 18x10 with +42 offset, tires are 295/40 all around, will I run into rubing issues because of the offset?

I don't think you'll get a 295/40 to fit in the front. I think the offset is ok but the tire is too big.

It's the inner wheelhouse and the tie rods that will interfere before full lock, I think

Which tires are you looking at? Might be better off going with a stickier 285/40? Would grip better than a less-sticky 295 anyway

GT350's have 295's up front. Not sure about the suspension set up.

But I'd check the offsets & sizes of those wheels, as a comparison:
295/35ZR19 96Z 10.5J x 19 ET25 5x114.3
305/30ZR20 96Z 11.0J x 20 ET19 5x114.3

Most people that go big square go 275 all around.
or staggered at 255 front & 275-305 rear.

The only 295's I've heard of on the fronts are on the GT350s.

So I picked up the wheels over the weekend they are 18x10s all around with 295/40 falken azenis rt 615k all around. I have no clearance issues and man do they grip I feel as if my car is glued to the floor. But I appreciate the help guys

I know the Roush SN197s have 18x10 square. I don't know the offsets, but it's not out of the realm of possibility.

Considering that Vorshlag Racing has 18x11 square setup and over a 2" drop with no custom work (camber plates required), I wouldn't think there would be a major problem with 18x10.


Edit:
I didn't read. I like your setup and have been putting off on getting wheels. I am thinking of going down from 20x8 front and 20x10 on the rear to 18x10 square.

Is your car lowered?

Yah I'm on kw v3s with mm played I had sportlines before my coilovers and I kept the ride height equilivent to the sportlines. Honestly after this box set up I don't think I'll ever switch back to staggered

Do you feel more feedback or resistance for turning ?

Like I keep my steering setting in Sport. But I'm wondering with these wide front wheels + Sport steering setting, if it make the turning feel "heavy"?

With the 295s set on sport setting the steering feels super heavy, when I keep it on normal a good way to put it is when I had 255s before in the front and when that was set on sport thats basically how the steering feels with the 295s having it set on normal
