View Full Version : anyone run 9.5inch wheels in the rear?

i have to replace 2 of my wheels and they were 19x8.5 and i have an option to get the staggered fit with a 9.5 with a stock offset

i dont even know if the stock offset will work let alone how far out they will stick

Only way to fit rims that wide are to stretch tires on it so the have no side wall. So as you can see you dont really gain much since you will still have the same tread width.

im not worried about the amount of tread
i like the stretched look
just wondering how far they stick out or if its even possible with a offset of 35

i'm running 19x9.5 in the rear with a 40or 42ET i believe. with 225 tires so it's pretty stretched. no rubbing, but the inside part of the tires are damn close to the upper arm.

got any pictures of the rims down the side of the car to show how far they stick out? cause a 40+ offset would sit in the fender more thatn a 35.....correct??
whats the complete tire size for the rear?
what are you running in the front?
19x8.5? what tires are on them?

rear 19x9.5 on 225/35/19 nittos + 5mm spacers
front 19x8.5 on 225 /35/19 nittos
without the spacers in the rear i'm pretty sure i would rub on the upper arms.
my next tire change i'm gonna try to run 225/40/19 for the rear...maybe 215/40/19 strech it like mother......

damn that looks sick
so basically by adding the spacers you made it a 35 offset
hows the stretch on the front rims does it look alot different?
215 might be a bit too small for the 8.5
did you get hassled about the tire width when you got them put on
i have a feeling people are gunna bitch trying to get it done around here

thanks for the info

the fronts are not stretched at all IMO.
and i put the tires on myself, so no..no hassle...just a little sweat...

i can see that being a PIA
