    Need help and Suggestions...

    Currently my car has 17inch TT2's on it...they are nothing special when it comes to width. I really want to get this look:

    192912d1250459016-new-wheels-rpm-505-post2.jpg

    It looks like those are more than likely 19 inch rims...I was thinking about 18's instead of 19's. My car is stock height right now and im not sure if i'll lower it or not...it really depends on how the wheel wells get filled out with the new rims and tires. I am looking at the RPM wheels, just like the ones in this picture. I would like to do a 295 in the rear instead of a 315 and a standard size up front...295 should be a 9.5 right? My main question is, am I going to have any clearance issues, am I going to have to get my fenders rolled, and am I going to need spacers or anything like that. Also, what kind of offset do I need for the rear to get a similar stance to the picture above. Almost forgot...I also need to know what the standard bolt size is for our cars.

    Thanks in advance.

    Others will chime in, but something tells me you'd be fine with those rims. The rears look like a 38-40mm offset and 11 inch width but I could be wrong.

    I would only run a 295 tire on a 10 inch wheel if I where you. I don't have tt2s but I have boss 338s which are similar and they are 20x10 with no rubbing, tight but no rubbing in the rear. They are a 38 offset though.

    Hopefully this gives you an idea of the stance and clearance you will have with the bigger wheels in the 38 offset. I have since lowered the car and the wheels still clear but I am going to roll the fenders to get extra room.

    You should be fine. You can run up to a 295 in a TA with no problems 315 can require rolling the fender or the bfh mod. We are lucky and have a slightly bigger wheel well then the camaro guys.

    Perfect...that the picture is exactly what I was looking for. That is the look I want...if you can run 20's with no issues, then im sure 19's would be fine on mine. Thanks for the offset info as well! Do your front wheels have any type of offset?

    I think they were about the same offset. I'll see if I can find out.

    Came across these this morning.............guy lives like 10 mins from me. How much beating and banging would I have to do to get the back tires to fit on my car? From the pictures, it looks like that back tire is like a 325 which is pretty big and honestly, its bigger than I want BUT if I can get a good enough deal I might do it. My car is stock height...
