Flush or not?

Gonna be putting on my winter wheels / tires next Wednesday, just want to know if these are gonna be pretty flush or not?

Wheel specs are:
Front 19X8.5 ET12
Rear 19X9.5 ET17

I'm not planning on running spacers, tire sizes are 255/35R19 front and 265/35R19 back.

Thanks~

Kev,

Yes, those wheels will be very flush front and rear.

The front wheels will be a little more flush than the rear wheels, but those offsets will be just about ideal for this car.

Thanks. That'd be nice~ Can't wait to put them on!

I think the front will be approximately the same as 19X9 ET20 (like the Advan RS M3 fitment). Am I right?

Yea, that setup would be nearly identical. (-2mm)

what wheels are you going with?
The front tires are pretty wide for winter tire setup dont you think?

Did you jump on the deal from tirerack on the LM-25s?

I ran those in Boston last year and they were fine. I think the front is a little wide, but they don't make the OEM size.

Front should be OK, the REAR will be pushed in for sure.

I would suggest for the REAR ET 15 10J your going to be flush for sure.

It will be perfect in the front.

Rear could come out another 2-3mm but shouldn't be a big deal.

I agree that the back can probably come out another to 5-8mm to match your Advan RS (your rear is 19X10 ET22, which is similar to 19X9.5 ET10). But, since I don't want to run spacers at all, I think I'd be happy with this slightly less aggressive offset. I'll post some pics when I throw the set on my car this Wednesday.

Picking a set up from dealer today. The set that came with the wheels were the old school ones with the cheesy CF sticker applied on them, so I threw them away
