Hey everyone,


I'm in the market for a set of Enkei Kojin 18x9.5 rims. Here's the question. What's the back spacing for our rears and fronts. Also which would need less modification. They have offsets of 15 and 30. I have a fender roller just wondering which would be a better offset for less poke.

Enkei Kojin Wheel - 18x9.5 5x120, 5x112, 5x114.3, 5x100 - Guerilla Racing

I'm not too good with this fitment and rim stuff. I am on air lift air ride and I'm trying to figure out which is a better offset. Also tire size. 245/40?45?50?
Any info would be wonderful. Thanks!
Scott

The +15 offset is going to poke like ****, if you want to go less modification then run the +30s. You'll still need to roll the fender but may get away with not having to pull it.

If you are set on 245s then I would run a 245/35, the others are all larger than stock diameter, with a 245/35 you are almost stock diameter. You can input your stock specs and what you want to do here, www.willtheyfit.com and visually see what the differences will be. For reference the stock wheels are 205/55R16 +45 on a 6.5" width rim if I remember correctly.

Here is some reference shots from my car.

225/40 on 18x8 +42 on Air Lift at full dump. Had to slightly roll the lip so I could roll completely dumped.



What I'm trying to fit now,

18x9 +6 front





18x10 +15 rear





The last four shots are on stock suspension with the car just sitting on the rims. As you can see they will require rolling, pulling, and possibly metal work to make them fit. I'll probably got 225/40R18 front and 245/35R18 rear. I like keeping the stock rolling diameter and not too much stretch even though these will be show only and not dailys.

Personally I would try to get a 235/35R18 for the 9.5s, there are very few brands in that size though so maybe 235/40R18 even if it is slightly taller than stock. A 245 is a lot to fit under is the wheel wells and that extra 1/2" might make the difference.
