Not Another Wheel Fitment Question...

Im looking at a set of Forgestar F14's and I have done math on math on math to figure out what my idea of a perfect set-up would be without fender work. Its come down to this...

(R) 19x10.5 et25 (Super Deep Concave)

(F) 19x9.5 et42 (Deep Concave)

I am pretty positive that the rears should work and clear fine. However, I am worried about inner clearance for the fronts. Can somebody tell me if they will clear?

If not, my back up size is (F) 19x9 et40

Thanks!

Running that fitment up front with a spacer. Just only think to worry about is the fitment with the coilover if using a progressive spring setup.

Yea that is what I am afraid of. What size spacer are you running. Are you running progressive coils? I will be installing ST coilovers with the wheels.

10mm spacer in the rear. And yes progressive coils, 3mm up front to clear my coils but that has to do with my weird offset on my 9.5" in the front VB3's

Hey actually one more question... Do your front wheels poke or are they flush? Also, are you running any neg camber?
