Need some help here guys...

I'm looking to put on some Lowenhart BR5's but I have some questions on the sizes. I wanna do 18x8 in the front w/ 235/40's and 18x9 in the back w/ 255/35's. Will this work ok in the back and if so what offset should i get for front and back. Also, for 18x9's is 255 width ok or should i use 245? Thanks

Bryan

Are you going to drop your car? If so, you may have to roll fender for 255s.

Yeah, i was planning on doing H&R race. You think i'll rub even though it's a 9" wide rim and not 9.5? Anyone have this setup in the rear? Thanks, AW is real nice. Looks sweet at night too.

hey bryan, you are getting the BR-5's too? beautiful wheel. nobody has them either. i might be the first to sport them on my ride. i ordered them a while ago and am still waiting for them. im getting 19x8.5 F w/ 235/35/19, 19x9 R w/ 245/35/19. got them in the silver w/ polished lip. also i am having H&R race springs put on as well to eliminate the wheel gap. are you planning on getting the silver or chrome finish? IMHO, the silver looks a lot better.

That setup sounds good to me. And I think the offset should be 44. Correct me if Im wrong here.

I'm gonna do silver w/ polished lip also. I'm not a big fan of chrome except for SUV's. I drive too much and some of the roads are pretty rough for 19's. Definitely post pics when you get them. BTW, where did you get them from and how much, if you don't mind me asking?

actually i got them through a friend who has a hook up at a local car shop. i got 19's in the silver with tires and installation for $3700. thats pretty damn good. if you look at some web sites you will find the exact package for about $4500 or so. so i think i got a pretty good deal for 19's.
