The factory sport is 19x9 +47 up front and 19x10 +30 rear. Overall these should be fine in clearing the brakes, however that rear fitment won't be that great, particularly if you are lowered or plan on lowering the car.
That link is useless to his question - SPOKE DESIGN dictates brake clearance, not offset. Two wheels of the exact same offset/width may have different clearance. Good wheel mfgs will have a chart that breaks down the difference clearance options for various sizes. Crappy ones have no idea because they haven't tested anything. Call your retailer, or better, the mfg to see if they offer any assistance.

Thanks for providing clarification on my response. The link was for educational purposes, not to provide direction. I guess this wasn't something that had been discussed before....I guess he could have also called the manufacturer or a vendor to discuss this as well, but seeing as there were no responses to his question, I thought to provide a link to provide some insight and maybe get the ball rolling on a potential thought process for another member. Instead I guess I could have come across a little more aggressive and just said, SEARCH?

There are multiple wheel fitment threads, that you NEED to browse through at minimum. You shouldn't be buying anything until you understand offset. It is not that complicated:

The lower the offset, the farther away from the hub (mounting surface) the wheel will set. Offset is usually listed as a value next to a plus sign, like "+22", to denote a 22 offset. Hyper aggressive wheels that poke way out may get to zero or even negative numbers, showing that they are going to by far, far away from the hub.

Simple abstract diagram of the different concepts positive/zero/negative:


A more practical demonstration





The first picture, the rear wheels are 19x10.5 +12
The second picture, the rear wheels are stock Nismos, 19x10.5 +23

The combination of a lower offset and wider wheel pushes the outter edge of the wheel much closer to fender


IF you intend to go with air suspension, you need to understand that it's gonna cost thousands of dollars. You will need a MUCH more aggressive wheel spec than what you're looking at

he absolutely should have searched since i know that i personally have answered this question multiple times

and i offered actual, useful advice, so why are you talking again?

Speaking of SEARCH . . .

I googled "konig ampliform brake clearance" and this popped up:

https://konigwheels.com/wheel-info-t...rake-calipers/

It's amazing what not whining about someone else and actually putting time into helping another can yield ACTUAL HELP

In short, the Z can fit pretty beefy wheel/tire combos, however you may want to be careful on width, as you don't have any camber adjustment from the factory. Look into SPL for suspension upgrades....great guys to deal with, amazing support and proven parts that are worth the money!
Thanks for the information. I just want to make sure the tire sizes are within spec tolerance for abs and stuff as well as fitting on the wheel properly.

Hey guys, looked through this whole thread and a couple others trying to find what size tires would work best with my set up. Main thing to know is that I'm going for street-ability and maybe some track use, so performance only. Not a stance guy.

The wheels I have are 18" rear face enkei GTC01rr's and are 10" up front, 11" in rear.

From what I've read I'm thinking 265 up front and 295 in rear. I know I could probably go a bit wider but I'm not seeing as many options. Just wanted to see what all y'all think before I pull the trigger. I found some good options on tirerack- Michelin PS2 Front: 265/35ZR18 (97Y) XL and Rear: 295/30ZR18 (98Y) XL, but I know there's other spots as well. Any recommendations greatly appreciated!

Near universal feedback from the track section is that square or close to square is best. You'll also need to stay close diameter wise f/r. I think you should have researched your tire selection BEFORE buying wheels, since tire and wheel sizing go together.

265/35 is very short - stock is 26.7 in front. That is 25.3 inch. Nearly an inch and a half shorter

295/30 is even shorter - stock is 26.9 in rear. That is 25 inches. Nearly 2 inches shorter.

I'd probably wanna go 265/40 and 295/35

or sell your fronts, put an 18x11 in front and run 275, 285, or 295 square

Go big or go home! 315 30 18 rear and 295 30 18 rear. This is slight stagger but not huge.

I run 315 30 18 square on 18x11 wheels. I have run 295 30 18 on 18x10.5. I prefer the 315s. Many track guys run 275 35 18 square on 10 or 10.5 x18 wheels.

it should go without saying but full SPL suspension is needed to take full advantage of these aggressive sizes

You got that right! Also it doesn't make a lot of sense to stretch your tires to much with the larger wheels. Take advantage of the size by maximizing the tire sidewall. Ps2 is a better street tire than track tire. I would make the leap to ps4s or Toyo R888Rs.
