Moving Back to OEM Wheels - Help Required

Hi Guys,

I am moving from 19" Forgestar F14's back to OEM 18" 219M Wheels. The offset and wheel size are below.

Fronts : 18 x 8.5 ET29
Rear : 18 x 9.5 ET23

I am looking to achieve a flush look and also would like to know the widest tyre sizes i can go safely. I would like an aggressive look.

I am aware i may need to use spacers to achieve the look i want. Please let me know what sizes i will need along with tyre sizes also.

I would prefer a 40 profile tyre as i like the meaty tyre look.

My car will eventually be lowered on KW V3's if this helps with answers.

Please let me know your opinions as i have a day to decide and put the tyres/spacers on order.

Cheers :thumbs:

Johnny

I think 40 is a bit much. BUT if you like the looks of it go for it. Just need to run spacers.
