Thanks Scotty! It does get a lot of looks on the road now, my son is 13 and thought it was so cool when we drove through a gas station parking lot and everyone was checking out the car and pointing. I have tint on it now and I think it looks even better... too bad I couldn't get pics with that on, it's been raining nonstop here

Anyhoo, not to hijack the thread, but thank you for the kind words!

If you have no rubbing problems, then this looks like about as good as you can get for a drop and big wheel/tire set-up. Well done!

I found this website that helps you analyze proposed wheel and tire combinations:

Custom rims, wheel tire packages for your ride - RIMSnTIRES.com

Thanks Tom! They don't rub, but I think they are about as close as you can get in the front.

Hi Max,
Are you saying that yours rub in the back? All the CRZ's use the same sheet metal regardless of color. If I read this corredtly, you are tunning 18x9" wheels with a 35 offset... Those wheels are a full inch wider than mine and offest 10mm more to the ouside, so they would stick out almost 1,5" farther than mine do, and I am pretty sure those would rub on my car too,

Sorry it took so long Roddy, needed to wait until I got on my computer on the weekend.

Initial tire set

Wheel info:
Brand: Wedsport SA-55m Gunmetal
Diameter: 18
Width: 8
offset: +45
Face: FF
Hub Bore: 73
Weight: 18.5 lbs

Tire info:
Size: 215x35x18
Brand/Model: Continental DWS

Suspension info:
Cusco Zero One, default 1.7" drop front/back.











Changed out to:
Tire info:
Size: 235x35x18
Brand/Model: Falken 912









Had 20mm spacers on back for a while, but didn't like the rub during large dips or bumps so have recently removed them. Continuing to lower again without spacers, but haven't found the correct height yet.

NOTE:
Rubbing in the rear seems to be primarily due to the rear fender securing screw mount at the top of the wheel well. This is problematic even when/if trying to roll them as the large piece of plastic holding the rear bumper will need to be pushed out quite a bit or ground down which is not ideal. This does not exist in the front fender well and should not be an issue if front rolling is necessary.

Hoi, i ran a 235 and felt some rubbing when going over bumps at fukk lock. The rubbing was at the front fender liner at about the 2o clock position drivers side theres a boxy chunk that comes out. I think it was that. Do you have any issues?
