Te37 Help !

Hi there guys and gals, ordered a set of TE37s in bronze finish 19" but i wanted to be decently fitted, i was told by people to run 19x9.5 front and 10.5 rear... i dont want to mess with spacers, and then a buddy told me to run x11 all the way around. And then also as for offset i wanted the wheels to be concave but im confused on the offset. People say +10 others say +15... Please help if possible! Would be great to know this before they start building!

I have TE 37s in 18" in both square and staggered setups. The staggered is 9.5 et 28 front and 10.5 et 22 in rear. Could have gone with et 22 in front.

If your suspension is coils, how is the fitment with the staggered setup? thanks again!

Your tire sizes seem a bit off. 245/35 on a 9.5" in wheel is a pretty big stretch. I'd recommend 265/30/19 or 275/30/19.

As for your rears, the profile height is probably too high. I think you might want to look at 285/30/19 instead.

I run pretty much the same offsets in 18" TE37, it will have a nice concave look to it.

If you're dropped, then you'll need to factor that in as well.

I am running 275 width tires in front and 285 in back on the staggered setup (NT05s). The fitment is fine, though like I said a 22et up front would be ideal.

Those sound like TE37SL specs

245/30/19 is a horrible size.....

Do either:
265/30/19 if you want to be aggressive

or you can do a 245/35/19 AD08. since AD08s run wide, you'll be fine.

Rear:
285/35/19 most likely will not work and it will rub if you're lowered, which I'm sure you are

If you do a 245/35/19/ AD08 in the front, you can do a a 275/35/19 AD08 in the rear as well.

If you do a 265/30/19, then you can do a 295/30/19 in the rear, but you will have some rubbing in the rear if you're running AD08s since they run square and wide

Don't do a 285/30/19, it's too short of a tire.
