He is planning on Work Kiwami rims. 265's and 305's won't bulge. There isn't really a noticeable bulge on a stock SP rim

Correct, which further proves the point that 305 is too wide of a tire. If the PS2 is super wide, then you can imagine how the AD08 which is even wider would look.

Thanks for all the info guys.

That pic with 305 on 10.5 isn't all that bulgy I think I'll be good.

Even if it bulges a bit on 11s cuz AD08s are thick, i'll be good, since I'll get an even 26.3 diameter front and back.

A little help please,

Front 20X10 +15
Rear 20X11 +15

I am lowered on swifts.

a) Does this clear the sport brakes?
b) If no, what size spacer do I need to use to make it clear?
c) what size spacer would i need to make it flush? For both rear and front.
d) what size tire would work well? I hate the beefy look and prefer a low profile... So a little bit of stretch.



Thanks a lot for the input guys

Not sure what you are looking for, but in general, absolutely.

Thanks for the quick response! Where can I get these spacers with those sizes? Not familiar with spacers and the types of brands. So if you can post a link that would be great!

8.5 for the front seems a bit narrow, most people at least go with 9 or 9.5, do you plan on lowering your car at all? IMO your offsets are a little weak I would go with something a little more aggresive, but that my .02

Hey guys, need some help. Wondering if I will have trouble fitting these specs with sport brakes..

19x10 -6 (high disc clear bbk)
19x11 -1

Not sure about what tire sizes I'd run at the moment.

Thanks in advance!
